Thank You Card Featuring Milk Bag Tabs

Do you ever hang on to those milk bag or bread bag tabs knowing they will come in handy for something?  I had a stash of them in my kitchen and thought that there must be a way to use them in my papercrafting.  By altering the color of the milk tabs, using complimentary colors, I created a unique focal point for my card.

  1. Andrea, this is a clever and very beautiful card. I love how you reused the tags and made them into the glorious embellishments. They have such a rich color. I used to have a large collection of these tags. (I used them to teach math skills).I wish I still had the collection. I guess I will have to start a new collection.

  2. How ingenious! I’ve chided my mother many times for saving these. I guess I’ll have to go crawling to her and beg for some of her stash. 😉
