Brighten up the month - Happy Daze Challenge

Over on the HAPPY DAZE design team blog the challenge this month is to brighten up the month!
The art work posted already this month has got me rising to the challenge.
I don't 'do' paper stuff - I really struggle with it but I've had a go.
 I'll probably put some paper money in these for Birthday or Christmas presents

 The sentiment stamp is an old TH one

Here is the template I created for these
It's 7.5 inches wide and 5 inches high for the wallet, and I used the button on the tag for the template  for the 'pull out' hole.
I used cereal box cardboard to glue the template on to - it's nice and sturdy to draw around.

And there is just one more

I have just been experimenting with these

Very easy.  I think I should put a bit of black ink on the gold trim - it looks a bit glarey!

Hi Lottie why you say you can't do paper craft I don't know. Everytime you do something it's been beautiful. Your too critical with yourself. Love all of your tags they are all gorgeous. Hugs x ChrisB
