#G45Tip Recycle and Reuse – A Floral Shoppe Tag Tutorial
By Sandi Nagel
“Hello G45ers! I have a special treat for you today! I'm sharing a #G45Tip that recycles and reuses your Graphic 45 product packages.
What I love about Graphic 45 is how they pay attention to every detail, including their packaging. Their package art is so pretty that I can't just throw it away!
I love how they're packages are made to double up as bases for our Graphic 45 tags. So we carefully remove the hardware that is attached to the pack and we now have a tag to play with!
I've put together an easy to follow video tutorial, where you can learn how you can make this beautiful Tag using your Graphic 45 packaging and papers from the Floral Shoppe collection.
In addition, I’ve put together a quick reference guide for you to check the entire process at a glance!” ~Sandi
