#99--Tag Punch Starburst

WOW! 99 posts so far. Be on the lookout for #100. It may just have a special treat attached.
I have seen these done by many other stampers. For instructions on how to make the tag punch starburt check out this tutorial. It takes a little bit of time and patients, but are not too hard. Many people layer them on top of one another for a larger looking burst, but I also wanted to make a scrapbook page. I could have made more, but these took awhile and the kids were getting fussy.
The outline of my tags were made with River Rock Cardstock. I placed them on a piece of "Dashing" DSP. To hold them in place I used my two way glue pen. I made the center using a 3/4" and 1" circle punch. I also wanted to try and use things I tend to hoard. I hoard Hodgepodge Hardware in a big way. Even here I still only used a page turner.
This scrapbook page came to me as I was making the starburst. It went together super fast. The large Old Olive area is an 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock. The photo mat on the left is for a 4x6 photo. It is Naturals Ivory over River Rock. The River Rock mat on the lower right is for a 4x4 photo. The other piece of Natural Ivory is for some journaling. The numbers were stamped with Old Olive craft ink using my "Headline Numbers" stamp set. I used a couple more of those page turners here also.
