Craft til you drop tag (for BBTB2)

Happy 2014!  To start the new year, my wonderful DT sister Brenda has issued us an open challenge dedicated to our hobby, to celebrate National Hobby Month.  I had no idea there was such a thing as National Hobby Month, but I'm willing to celebrate it all year long if it involves scrapbooking!  My nieces have become crafters (they share a baby bug) and I help keep them stocked in paper on birthdays and Christmas.  One of my nieces has a birthday this month, so since the gift will be scrapbooking paper/supplies, I made a crafty themed tag to go on the package (I've totally been on a tag kick because the recipients really liked the Christmas tags I made).  The craft with scissors on the tag is from Nate's ABCs and everything else is from Plaintain Schoolbook except the star (which was just lying around on the craft table).

Plaintain Schoolbook-tag, cut at 4 1/2 inches
Nate's ABCs-phrase cut at 1 1/2 inches
Paper-solids CTMH, print Bo Bunny Surprise collection
ribbon-American Crafts
brown chalk ink

Link up your project to celebrate your hobby with us at BBTB2 and we look forward to lots of fun challenges throughout this year!
