I actually like the natural color of canvas!
I used my mini blank as a pocket for a gift card for a friend. I used my adhesive tape and a few mini staples to secure it to a tag.
I only needed a few items to add details to my mini canvas blank.
A stamp set from Close to My Heart, my new bling, a prima tag as my base, Heidi Swapp's Pink Color Shine & Stencil. I covered the tag with some of my favorite paper. Both sides of the tag are covered so it hides my staples and brads. I used the color shine as a paint to add the details of the stencil and to color my ribbon.
Order a few mini blanks and you can create a few of these for your friends. You can also put a few of the mini blanks together to make a mini album.
