You're the Balm! for The Cutting Cafe

There's quite a few pictures with today's post, so bear with me! This week, at The Cutting Cafe, we're using The Cutting Cafe's Printable Stamps and/or papers, and anything recycled, repurposed, or upcycled.  Oooh, sounds like a fun challenge, doesn't it? 
Here's the first view of my recycled project, then I'll tell you a bit about it:
I made these tags out of a cereal box.  Cereal boxes make the best chipboard!
You will need:
that cereal box to give some sturdiness to your tag, digital papers from The Cutting Cafe. I used the Chevron Fall Background Printables, The Colored Mini Polk A Dot Background Set, the Christmas Chevrons Printable Set, and Friends background printable stamp. After I die cut the tag out of both chipboard (cereal box) and printable paper, I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers.  They are the 5 Petal Layered Flower, found at The Cutting Cafe.
Below, is a picture of everything cut out, but not yet assembled.
 I am using these lip balm tags as table decorations at an upcoming girls gathering.  We all take turns cooking for our multi-day event.  I'm not much of a cook, so I'll add a little fun to my meal with some cute gifts for them set at each place.

Next time you are done with the cereal box, don't throw it! Re-purpose it instead!  It really is wonderful chipboard.
