FabScraps Retro Twist Collection - Tag

FabScraps Retro Twist Tag
FabScraps Retro Twist collection was meant for playful whimsical fun.  I made a super easy and adorable gift tag.  When I say super easy, you can have this tag done in ten minutes.   I have included easy steps below.

FabScraps has made it easy to create fun tags because they have great matching journal tags to coordinate with the paper collection.  Each journal tag opens like a card.  They have gorgeous scalloped edges and beautiful die cut butterflies that reveal the solid inside of the journal card. 
  Thanks for looking.  Have a retro groovy day - or at least a FAB-ulous one.
