Red, White & Blue Aviator Happy Birthday Tag

Decided on a red white & blue theme for this Tag. Used a Digi Darlas digi, Aviator Kitty 1, that I colored on the computer. Recycled some cardboard to give the tag more sturdiness. Used craft lounge Flyin' Birthday stamps for the sentiments. Added some ribbon.

  1. What a great way to recycle and reuse, Melissa. I've actually done similar projects and I save cardboard pieces to make little albums. Great idea, and thanks so much for sharing with us.
