How to Use Packaging to Make Beautiful Mixed Media Tags with ColourArte

Have you ever bought something that had pretty packaging?  Manufacturers spend lots of money on their packaging to make us want to buy their product.  Well, sometimes I just cannot bear to throw the cardboard backing or actual tag on a product.  Why not put these to use and turn them into beautiful mixed media tags to use in your art, whether it's for a card front, an addition to your art journal,  an embellishment for a canvas, a gift tag, or just to try out different mixed media techniques to keep for future reference!
