This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of Tube and Scrap Kit. If you want your tag to look exactly like mine then use the same supplies that I have used. Any resemblance to any other tutorial or tag is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:

Tube by Amber Kelso. I got this tag when the artist was at CILM. I am not sure where to get her tubes now sorry.

Scrap kit is by Purple Dreams Scraps. It is called Irish and you can purchase it at

Font of your choice. I am using Sistah Ysse you can get it at
