You Are First Place

Hey creative ladies! It's great to be back to share with you a simple layout tutorial for Maggie Holmes Design Team. 
Decorative tapes are still very popular among scrapbookers, cardmakers & crafters. I am so happy to see that Maggie has included tapes into her Styleboard collection too! I'm gonna show you how to create your own embellishment by using the tapes.
What you'll need:
Maggie Holmes Decorative Tapes
Craft Circle Punches

Here I used a 1 1/8" circle punch.

I decided to also use a bigger circle punch (1 1/2") as well.

Here are the punched circles. You may use your scissors to trim any rough edges so you can have a perfect looking circle.

Here's a completed layout with all the punched circles. Pretty isn't it? Absolutely adore the gold foil polkadot kraft paper too! It matched pretty well with the tapes.

I wanted to give a little dimension to this paper tag. So I layered the standout sticker onto a vellum shape & pasted it on the tag.
