Tutorial.Making flowers from tags at Counterfeit Kits

Choose an accumulation(about 10) of tags and ink around the edges.
I've used pinecone to give them an aged feel.
Begin placing them around in a circle with the eyelet section facing out.
Keep it fairly tight and adhere when you are happy with the way they look.

Repeat the process with a smaller tag group. There are 7 on this layer.
Finish off your flower with a button or some bling depending on your layout style.
And here it is on a layout!
You can see I've added canvas branches around my foliage but this could be leaves or chipboard flourishes etc.
I used quite big tags. Smaller tags make smaller flowers.
Experiment with other shapes eg round tags.
Have fun!
