Good luck Amy!

The really rather lovely Amy, our friend and baby sitter extraordinaire, has done rather too well in her A levels and is off to Uni today. We are so excited for her and wanted to send her off with a little something. Uni is now so expensive that we know she'll struggle to have a little luxury so we're sending her off with a little of her favourite chocolate and some money to buy her first drink in the Students Union (can you tell that David and I have been reminiscing about our first days at Uni?!) 
The tag is die cut from glassine paper and crumpled up. Then I added a little white paint followed by a swoosh of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain over that to give a shimmer. Then I added Vintage Photo and Broken China Distress Inks and a little script stamp in Sepia Archival Ink. Then I cut out the letters from Kraft Resist paper and treated them as I did with the tag. I then added them to the tag, doodled around them and the tag itself and added a little paper tag with a ruler design. 
I crumpled another sheet of glassine paper and die cut a bag to house the tag, chocolate and beer money! So, much love to Amy as you start this new adventure - we hope you have as much fun as we did!
