On My Desk: Just For You Tag

 I have a little box on my desk that collects extra die cuts, and stamped images that don't make it onto a card. I've challenged myself to use these items instead of continually starting from 'scratch".  You can find another project (journalling cards) in this series here.

This "tag" started out as a card front. I made a few mistakes while I was stamping a background panel (Dot Spot), so it landed in the box "on my desk"

I cut the stamped panel into a tag so I was able to avoid the bloopers!! The sentiment circle (Just For You) and the butterfly die cut (Heart-2-Heart #10) were ready to use from my stash, with only a few additions. These were layered onto the tag and I was quickly done!!
I still have lots of bits and bobs on my desk, so I'm sure I'll be making more scrap inspired projects. It feels good to clean out these scraps and have a  completed project at the same time!!
