Beautiful Day - A Tag Using (Mostly) Recyclables

I’ve entered the Recycle and Reuse challenge at Scrapbook.com where we’re asked to create a project that contains at least 25% repurposed items. I’ve chosen to make a tag using packaging, paper towel rolls, a dictionary page and some embellishments from my stash.

We can earn extra credit by making a tutorial; mine ended up with quite a few steps, so I created one on Snapguide. https://snapguide.com/guides/create-a-tag-using-mostly-recyclables/
Due to space, I kept the supply list in the tutorial to a minimum. Below, I’ve given a complete breakdown.
