Make It Monday #46

Hello hello!
It's another day in Christchurch and Mother Nature is still rock'n rollin'. Not too bad today though. Nothing 'major' since the 5.1 magnitude wake up call at 6:30am. There's still the odd little shakes, but nothing we're not used to ;)
Today, I was out seeing an old friend at the park. Malls were surprisingly not so packed - I suspect yesterday's shake ups have freaked a few shoppers out.
Anyway, I've tackled the Make It Monday at last! I really don't do well with tags, but I gave it a crack.
So this week's challenge was to turn any die into a folded tag. It's more or less the same theory as the Shape Up series dies.
I went back to using my Front & Center die. I really don't use that die enough and I just find it a little big for my head to get around. I don't do so well with large spaces - hence I've held off scrapbooking.
I've kept this one very simple. And I cut the Front & Center die cuts smaller so I didn't have a large area to decorate. I just stamped it with Polka Dot Basic II and added a tag. Simple as.
And you might be surprised that this simple thing took me forever to do.
Thanks for coming by.
Merry Christmas to you all, and hope that you get a well deserved break and family time :)
