'Punch'ed tags

I recently bought some punches (my first!!) and was waiting to use them. So I made a tag and embellished it using the punches in a different way!!




I used an old invitation (I liked the color - light cream!!) as the CS. I used a border punch and cut it to pieces and stuck two together to form a butterfly like pattern. I used this as embellishment.

 Then I punched out the border in another piece of paper and wrote the verse "All things were made by HIM".
