Bird On Wire Tags

I haven’t treated myself to anything of a crafty type nature for ages,  but recently decided to have a bit of a splurge …… the first thing I bought was the Martha Stewart “Bird on Wire” edge punch
Birds on a wite tags
At the moment I am rubbish at punching a long edge, but there again, I am not very patient.  A single punchie is small, but perfect for tags and small cards …. but I know it will be a punch that will be used over and over again, I am already thinking Christmas …. and punching them out in brown for robins!
Which brings me to the tags, made using Kraft card and scraps of Papermania Bookprint papers  …… I know I am very guilty of wasting a lot of card when I cut card blanks ……
…… but,  I am now keeping my much under used Cropodile permanently on my desk,  and making a concerted effort to get at least two tags from the remnants of each card I make …. and then when I have a whole pile of them will send them to the local charity shop or RNLI.
