January NEW Challenge by Jean

Guest Design Team Member Jean submitted this tag for the January NEW Challenge.  She said:

This is a double tag I made for a New Year’s Message to a dear friend. Made from white card folded into a 6 x 3 inch double tag. The papers are from a cheap but pretty pack of coloured tissues from a local pound shop, I cut diagonally to fit the card. I made the angel by drawing around a stencil of a Christmas angel onto the tissue paper and cut 2.   I used double sided tape to attach it to a plastic straw, (firm sort) cut to size, sandwiching the straw between the 2 angels. I wound ribbon cord at the top of the angel, twisted it across the front and glued it at the base. A computer printed angel quote finished it off. The reverse side was built up the same with another angel quote added. The same corded ribbon finished the tag with some pearl beads threaded through the same hole.

Thank you for looking.
