Today I am sharing a fun and easy tag DIY over on Maggie Holmes blog using the styleboard collection paper and watercolors. I love having pre-made tags on hand for quick and easy gift giving. Hop on over to Maggie’s blog to read the full tutorial.
Do you remember making paper chains when you were little?? I can remember making them in school with cheap construction paper during Christmas to count down the days till we got to open presents. Usually we would hang it on our fire place and half way through the season we would usually forget a day, which then turned the paper chain into a decoration.
With less then 13 days to our AZ workshop, I thought it would be fun to send a fun happy mail count down paper chain to a sweet friend who will be attending the workshop.
Using my favorite Maggie Holmes styleboard paper I cut a wide variety of 1/2 inch width strips. Because I was using scraps, the lengths varied in size. As soon as I had enough strips, I started glueing them together to make the paper chain.
See you in 13 days !!!!
It was so fun reading all your comments on Maggie’s new open book collection. I love it just as much as you do and can’t wait to start creating !!! The entire design team is excited for Maggie, so thank you for all your love and support!!!
