Happy Day to You

I like to get as much mileage out of patterned paper as I can, especially when planning for a class.  I like for everyone to have as much of the same supplies as possible so no one is disappointed.  I "try" to use 3" or 4" pieces in either 1", 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" widths.   I really wanted to keep this card exactly the same for everyone, so I cut the overall layering down to accommodate a 4" strip.  I actually like how it turned out because there's not as much blank white space at the top.

I made the tag using one of the framelits from the new Apothecary Accents Framelits.  It's rounded on both ends, but I just cut one end off.  I used as corner as my guide (not the rounded part) and cut at 2-1/2 inches.

Here's what I used:
