Cut out a tag. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits, but you can make any shape. Sponge the tag with ink to give it some color.

Step 2: Emboss Coral Image.

Stamp the sentiment with Cajun Craze ink on to white card stock. Punch out with the Modern Label Punch. Place the sentiment to one end. Re-insert the punched shape and move it so that you can shorten the punched shape. Use a Post-It not to help you hold the sentiment piece. Place one of the Candy Dots into the Candy Dot Base. Set on the end of the sentiment piece.

Step 5: Assemble Tag
