Here’s my very traditional Valentine’s Day tag:

I made my tag using the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies.

Then, I die cut 2 stencils using the CUTplorations XOXO Word Die and the Hugs Word Die. I sponged red ink through my homemade stencils.hugs-worddie

I love making my own stencils with CUTplorations word dies. Here’s a photo from a previous project.img_3600_edited-1

I have a fun discount code for you! Shery, of STAMPlorations, has generously given me a code to share.

I added some red and white twine. I decided that my tag needed to wear some

Image result for washi tape red polka dot

so I added a bit of that.
