the last of the pastel cardstock

i cut the last of it in half to a gift tag size. i had this great paper from flair designs of vintage crate labels (they participated in a stay-n-play workshop my company did at a craft trade show this past summer, and they were kind enough to leave us a few extra sheets), so i cut out each label and glued to the tags. i scored the front just about 1/2" down from the top and glued the front to the back to create a tab-top for the hole punch, so the tag will open up better to be read, and it will lay nicer on a package or bottle once there is a ribbon threaded through. I inked the edges, outlined parts of the label design with my trusty glitter pen (i just can't get enough of it, it gives so much dimension and "finesse" to plain surfaces, and it's so easy and not messy like glitter glue is) and voila. oh yeah, i used a rounded corner punch on a couple too. pretty cute, huh? for sale at http://www.lisalizalou.etsy.com/
