Making garland

Thanks for all of your kind comments on my herringbone, supersized layout and card. Several people requested a tutorial for how I did it, so I'll see if I can get something done this week for it.

In the meantime, I have several thank you cards that I need to make, so I decided to make some using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Making Garland.

I started with a Crate Paper tag I cut out of a sheet of patterned paper and went from there...


I used Crate Paper patterned paper and Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white, new leaf), stamps (framed out #1, turning a new leaf, botanical silhouettes) and dies (buttoned up, tiny tags).

Thanks for looking!
