Paperless Tag

 This is my entry for GC30 Spicy Challenge to use buttons at Gingersnap Creations.


 Louise at Kard Krazy challenged tag makers to create a tag without using any paper. I love a good challenge so here is my paperless tag. I decided to use wood as my substrate...I'm so Thankful for my woodworker hubby who just happened to have this lovely maple veneer in the garage. He cut a number tag shapes...I plan to make more as gifts. I white embossed the Old Letter Writing stamp from Hero Arts and then created a tree shape with buttons. A little ribbon and voila...Paperless Tag! Thank you Louise, keep the creative challenges coming.
Day 3 of my 30 days of Thanksgiving...as I mentioned above, soooo thankful for my wonderful, loving and oh so talented hubby, not to mention his garage full of wood.

Thought for the Day: Good advice from Colossians 3:15 "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful!

Have a blessed day,
Nancy
