Last minute gift idea

I needed a small last minute gift for some friends who invited us for lunch and saw this nice packet of Potpourri in Spotlight. It was only $3.99 and not that I was being cheap or anything (!) but my friends dont eat chocolate (gasp) and I didn't want to stop for flowers on the way. So I decorated it with a nice gift tag using the latest Darkroom Door release.


Potpourri (Spotlight)
Kraft Cardstock
Darkroom Door Essentials 7 Simply Circles
Pink & Brown inks
Zing Clear Embossing Powder
Fibres, Border Punch

I aligned all four circle stamps on an acrylic block together then inked each circle up and stamped them. Then I dusted with embossing powder and heat set. I randomly added more solid circles around the outside of the tag an in particular at the very top to act as a reinforcement to hold the fibres and heat set again.
