Upcycled tag

My third entry at  Sugarpea designs
is ....wait for it....
A Tag!!!
Sorry folks if you are sick of them, I've been having fun and they are so quick and easy to make.
This one is a real recycled one. It uses the Dingily-dangly part of a broken earring as the charm and the leather string is actually the tassels which a colleague cut off her handbag as she felt 'There where too many of them...'
It is hand cut.
Card stock: yellow and white in 160gsm
Post it strip: Butterflies
