From card to tag

I didn't find time to do any crafting at the weekend as I was making the most of the reasonably good weather and getting out in the fresh air, walking mainly.

In fact I had a fabulous weekend catching up with my parents, old friends, some new friends and even managed to get some time just for me... and all without any crafting (sadly!).

So today I have a really quick project to share with you as I am back battling with life in Cambridge and didn't have time to find any photo's of other projects I was going to share with you...

I got the idea for these flower tags from a card that the lovely Amy made last month.

They are really quick to make:

- Punch 4 scalloped circles DSP, I've used the Brights Collection, and then fold each of these into quarters and then arrange into a flower shape onto another scalloped circle of cardstock (I used Crumbcake, although you can't see this in the photo).
- Glue a designee brad in the centre.  Note that the easiest way to do this is bend the prongs of the brad up and under the top and then add glue and stick to the centre of the flower. 
- Punch a hole with your Crop-A-Dile through the cardstock and one of the 'petals' and feed some linen thread through the hole.
