Creating an Upcycled Tag with Graphic 45 and Couture!

Hey friends!
Today I have a fun tutorial to share with you. I discovered a new medium to deliver my tutorials thanks to Joanna and Charee from Graphic 45! It's called SnapGuide and WOW! If you thought Pinterest was a vast sea of inspiration, you have to check out the array of tutorials available on SnapGuide. I literally was engulfed in SnapGuide tutorials for nearly an entire day on my first visit! It is such a great place to find step-by-step tutorials on nearly everything from crafting, cooking, home improvement to even emergency planning! 

So let me jump right into the project and tutorial!

Aren't the Graphic 45 Staples just amazing?! ♥ Well, what about the packaging they come in? Simply fabulous! ♥ Save them! I save all of mine and upcycle them into tags, albums and inserts for my mini albums. The project ideas are endless and not to mention environmentally friendly, too! ♥

For this project I upcycled the Staples packaging from Graphic 45's Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Keys and used the fabulously chic Couture collection to create this tag. What a wonderful gift in lieu of a card! ♥

My tutorial will take you step-by-step on how to upcycle the packaging!

First here is a quick photo of the tag in its entirety! ♥ here is my Snap Guide Tutorial!
