H2H Create A Tag Challenge

This week it's a Create A Tag Challenge on Heart 2 Heart Challenges. This can be a tag alone, incorporated onto a card or layout...however you would like to present your artwork on a tag! And Lori Miller - Clearly From The Heart is the Prize Sponsor for this week, she is offering "everything to make the 9x9 Life Delights Memory Showcase." You can check it out on her blog, or at H2H Challenges Blog.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I incorporated my tag onto a card...or maybe I should say 'into' the card, lol. I made a little pocket for the tag to slide into. I added some Stickles to the tag, you can see it glitter in the photo below.
Here is a short tutorial on how I put the card/tag together:
The White Daisy CS is on the left. The B&T piece that is behind the pocket does not have to go all the way to the bottom because it will be covered by the pocket.
Remember to only place adhesive around the outside edges of the pocket piece, otherwise you end up gluing the pocket shut:)
You can make your tag any size that will fit in the pocket. Mine is 3" x 4". And how come no one told me I could use the CTMH VersaMat to measure out the corners for the tags???? As I was thinking about what was a good angle and amount to take off the corner, I looked down at the tag on my VersaMat and noticed that the angle was perfect!!! So I took my ruler and drew a line to cut couldn't have been any easier:) Gotta love when that happens!!!
