All the new sets I've been previewing this weekend are NOW AVAILABLE so run over and check them out!!
The leaf stem tag is punched from a Sizzix die. I added a circle at the top so it was wide enough to attach an eyelet so I could hang it from the handle on the bag with a piece of hemp. I stamped the sentiment from the Basic Salutations set on a scrap of cream card stock punched it with my oval punch, sponged the edges with Hazelnut ink and just attached it across the leaf stem.
This would make a great little thank you gift to fill with tea bags, or chocolate (!) or any small gift you know the recipient would enjoy and it works up in just a few minutes! It took longer to fix the tag than to do all the stamping!
Note: I sprayed the front of my bag with a clear acrylic matte sealer that I got at Michaels to seal the ink and prevent smudging. I'm not sure if it needed that or not. The canvas bag came in a set of 5 also purchased at Michaels . It says you should only hand wash them with a mild soap if they need washing. I have not washed this so cannot say if the ink fades out or not. I don't think, in the normal scheme of things, you'd be washing this little bag anyway.
