Happy Halloween Tag

Hello Stampers! I love challenges! They are so much fun and gets me out of my comfort zone. I don't usually make stand alone tags because I can't decide what I would use it for after making it. This time with all the beautiful Halloween papers and products that are available I had to make one. This is going to probably go along with some treats

 I started off by making the flowers, the bows and fussy cutting the hat. I embossed the background paper with the Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder for Flourishes Make a Good Impressions challenge theme. Then it was onto the assembly part.

 I had to use my glue gun for this project to make sure everything stays put. I ran some wet glue along the edge of the accordion flower and sprinkled on black glitter. I also added some glitter to the small rose on the hat.

 The ribbon was then attached to each other with hot glue also. I colored in the pearl to match my color scheme.

Papers: Fancy Pants, Jenni Bowlin, SU (pumpkim cardstock - tag base)
Accessories: Black Gingham (CTMH), Orange (craft store), Glitter (Tim Holtz - Black Soot), Pearl (Melissa Frances)
Tools: Rose (MFT Die-namics)

Linking to the following:

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - make an impression (happy birthday embossing folder)

Wags 'n Whiskers - ribbons and bows
