So I made a tag. A really cute one with some bright pink, blue, green and white paper and like it so much I made another, and anlther. Somewhere along the way I found a cut-up piece of old Scenic Route rub-ons, and I decided to just try to use up some of my oldies but goodies from my stash.
Eventually, around 4:30, hubby got up and left for work, so I went back to bed to sleep for a couple of hours. When I got up I made the girls go outside to do their business, fed them their breakfast, poured me a glass of juice, and went back to my work table. In all I made 9 tags! And I love them all, although there are one or two that are 'special'! Here they are . . .
I used #5 manilla tags (2 3/8" x 4 1/2") for the base for all tags. Adhesives used are Beacon 3 in 1 glue, Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac adhesive, and adhesive squares from Dollar General.
#1 = Paper from a DCWV Stack, ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Gems are Prima eLine, Stickles 'crystal', Melissa Frances rub-on.
Brown ink and ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Stickles 'platinum', French text stamp (can't remember who made it) pompom from a bit of fringe in my stash.

Probably my very favorite of the 9 tags! Paper is from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby), ribbon from Michaels, gems are Prima eLine, rub-on from Scenic Route, flowers are all, I think, Prima.
Paper is from My Minds Eye, ribbonis from Hobby Lobby, lowers are various, but mostly Prima, Stickles 'platinum', and Prima eLine gems. Oh, and 'celebrate' rub-on is Scenic Route. (PS - I love that pink and copper fleur de lis ribbon!)
Paper is Shabby Princess by Bo Bunny Designs. Green cardstock is Core'd'inations. Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, sentiment is Scenic Route, button from my stash, and Stickles 'diamond'. I wet the green cardstock in warm water briefly, then dried it with a paper towel, pleated it by hand, and dried in the microwave @ 50 seconds or so on high.
Probably my second favorite, although I'm not really a 'pink and black' kind of gal. Paper is from an old Fancy Pants sheet, gems are Prima eLine, Flowers are (I think) Petaloo, ribbons from my stash, and the sentiment is Scenic Route.
