Handyman Father's Day Tag

Created this Tag using Pattie's Creations digi, Handyman's Pal, that I colored on computer. Thought the tool scrapbook paper was a good match for it and it will be perfect for my Hubby's Father's Day gift. Recycled a cardboard cereal box for back of tag for sturdiness. Used Stampin' Up sentiment. Added Twill Ruler ribbon.
