thank YOU (Cool Technique!)...

I was supposed to be cleaning the house, but I decided those dust-bunnies could wait when I saw this week's Simon Says Stamp Dies Challenge as well as a cool technique featured on Make it Monday. I own a lot of thin dies and when I watched this video on how to use them to make my own chipboard accents, I was hooked! I got out these adorable little tag dies and decided to run them through my Big Shot several times using an old cereal box as suggested. After gluing the layers together, I was left with perfect little chipboard embellies!
I decided to make a thank you card (my fave) and stamped a letter with stamps from Taylored Expressions on each tag, pairing everything with some pretty patterned paper from my stash. A bit of lacy ribbon and I was all done!

Cute little tags. You sure did have to die cut a lot of them.
