{I Choose You VALENTINE} - a Fuse Shaker Tag

I've had my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for quite a while now, but this was the first time using it to make a shaker tag... it won't be the last!  It was too much fun and I'm in love with it!

I used the cutest squirrels-hugging-in-a-giant-acorn stamp from the My Favorite Nut stamp set by {Neat & Tangled}.  I stamped the image onto watercolor cardstock and painted the squirrels.  I then stamped it a second time onto patterned paper, added a few watercolor highlights around the edges, fussy-cut it out, and paper-pieced it onto the die-cut acorn.

I then added it to the tag shape.  I used the Fuse tool around the edges of the tag die onto a cut plastic page protector, slipped in the paper tag, added some sequins and seed beads from my stash, then Fused around the top to seal it off.  I punched a hole for the ribbons and flower, and it was finished.

I'm linking up to these fun challenges:
