Cute and Spooky Birthday Blog Hop

Today, I am helping my scrappy friend Kimberly celebrate the 1-year anniversary of her Etsy Shop, Polka Dotted Bliss. She has a spookalicious line-up of talented girls sharing polka-dot Halloween creations all week long on her blog! AND, she's giving away some blog candy each and every day this week. So make sure you stop in all this week, catch some inspiration and enter the giveaways!

Day Six: 
Day Seven:

 I love  creating with paper and have an obsession with making mini albums and journals.     My first thought was to make an album as this is what I love doing, and am sure everyone expected me to make.  So I did the un-expected and created a gift tag instead.
  I used a re-purposed vintage layaway tag for my base, and MME's Wicked  paper.  I embellished it with a little touch of burlap, canvas border, a felt spider,  a handcrafted stick pin, vintage black seam binding ribbon, and a unique hand crafted skull button. Can you tell what I made the button out of?
I am all about the vintage look, and I hope that I captured it in this tag.  

Materials I used:
My Mind Eye's papers
Tim Holtz Black Soot Distressing Ink
Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus Canvas border and skull
Felt spider
Vintage layaway tag
Vintage poker chip
Vintage seam binding
