How can a tag become a bag???

I know that we all try to think of imaginative uses for our dies and punches to get the most out of them, here's one I came up with yesterday:-

Took this Die (large sizzix, scallop tag)

this is about 9cms in length, so scored a fold at 3cm, another at 58mm and another at 62mm. then folded to form the required shape.

Had already threaded some silver mini beads on some thin craft wire and had this part attached to sticky foam tape and this was then attached inside the shape. Used a silver brad for decoration and another bit of sticky foam tape to secure down the top flap......and this is what I went on to make with it:

backing paper is from a Wild Rose Studio CD, have used GoKreate Frilly Square, wording done on pc, font is called Zipty-do.

I thought it made quite a cute little topper, what do you think?
