Flower tag

I cut this tag from tags bags boxes and more at 41/2" with it's shadow. The paper is Teresa Collins. The grey ribbon is stampin up the white crinkle ribbon is from My Craft Spot. The flower was made by cutting varying sizes of organza squares and cutting slits into each side then running the edges through the flame of a candle to make them curl. Then I layered them on top of each other and secured with a brad, glued the gem in the center with glossy accents and sprinkled with glitter. Glued the flower to a felt circle with hot glue then glued a barrette to the felt. I cut the scallop circle from Mini monograms at 3" and cut 2 slits about 3/4 " long for barrette to go through. Put pop dots on either side of the slits and glued down. So the flower can come off and be used.
