Time for a tag

I'm not really one for crafting outside the box. I like to make cards. I like to scrap. I don't do much else in terms of papercrafts. But the tag in the kit was calling my name - "embellish me" and the glassine envelopes were saying "don't just cut me up and emboss me" (much as I love the look when I do!) so I listened to their tiny voices and did something about it.
(Please don't tell me that your crafting supplies don't speak to you because I won't believe it) (A triple negative sentence, go me)

I (modestly) think this tag sums up what makes the kit so fabulous. Aqua blue, green and yellow with a dash of black and white mixed with some fun and funky embellishments. I cut a strip of the Kesi'art Alouette paper that would leave a narrow margin round the tag, inked with black ink and adhered it. Then I tore a larger piece of the same paper, using the design on the reverse and added this on top. I gathered up most of the silver stars and popped them in the smallest glassine envelope. I turned over the top edge a few times before sticking down to the tag.

I covered this with one of the stamps and tied the black ribbon round, cutting the edges into a "v" shape. I die cut a star shape using the My Minds Eye History Blooms paper, inked the edges and added the words using a stamp set. I thought it would be fun to stamp "Star" on a separate piece of paper and staple it to the star, which was then attached to the tag. I had lots of fun shaking up the envelope to see the stars move around.
