DCM - Tagged ! clam shell card idea : featured make & take at 2peas

front of card
back of card !
Now onto this weeks dare by Rhi ...Everything we buy has packaging, some of it excessive, some of it beautifully designed. Tags, labels, stickers... all sorts of bits and bobs that we can recycle onto cards.I dare you to make a card using a tag, label, sticker or anything else you can find, thats from packaging and would normally end up in the bin. Of course you can ink it, change it, distress it and add anything else you like!
If you're feeling brave, I DOUBLE DARE you to make it a card for a man!

Hi Pearl - this is so unusual, I love what you have done with it.

It just goes to show that although we are all hoarders, we still throw out things we could use. Oh I need a bigger house now that I'm keeping packaging too. LOL.
