Birthday Tag ~ Paper Playtime Challenge #14

Good Morning.  How was your weekend?  Mine was good. I worked part of it but managed to get in a bbq, a swim, church and a bit of crafting time as well.  Not too bad for a Summer weekend.  But today is Monday and that means the weekend is over but it also means a new challenge at Paper Playtime.  For the next two weeks, our challenge to you is "TAGS, TAGS, TAGS!" ~ make a tag or a project that incorporates a tag on it.



The tag was cut with my Cricut from an old acrylic packaging I had been saving.  The Cricut actually just scored the outline even though I cut it on multi cut so I just went over it with a pair of scissors to get the tag.  I painted around the edges with pink acrylic paint and then embellished both front and back.  I must admit that I saw a similar tag on Pinterest so this is not an original idea of mine.  And it was hard to get a good photograph as, of course, the tag is "see through"
