Tag Tuesday-Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse

Louise challenged us to recycle, repurpose, reuse for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge. I have glued pieces of an old tissue sewing pattern to the tag and then stamped some texture over it and inked the edges. The flowers were cut from the same tissue using a Nestabilities die, putting a brad through the center then "fluffing" the layers.
See more ways to recycle, repurpose, and reuse by visiting Kard Krazy.
