Now, on to the main event! Y'all know how much I LOVE making tags, so it only made sense that we would have a tag challenge before long! The challenge is to make a tag ... with a halloween theme ... using a recipe of 1 image, 2 rick-rack and 3 bling. Here is my project ...
- Base tag (#5 Manila) - Walmart.com
- Patterned papers - Basic Grey, Fancy Pants Designs
- Rick-Rack - stash (mostly estate sales)
- Bling - Stickles 'platinum', Prima
- Image - Flickr
- Ink - Stampabilities
- Ribbon - yard sale
- Computer and Ink Jet Printer
- Cricut Expression and Elegant Edges cartridge
- Scissors, craft knife, ruler, rotary cutter
I love making projects with vintage image ... of course you know that, but I really love 'fussy cutting' the images, popping them up on foam dots and making them the focal point of a project!
Now, how would you use a tag? Well, they make great gift tags, but I love to use them as little note cards! Write a love note to your significant other and slip it into their lunch bag, briefcase, on the dash of their car, etc. Use them as notes for your child's teacher to let them know you appreciate them! Have a friend who is having a hard time? Make a bunch and send one a day to let them know you have their back! There are so many different ways you can use tags ... even as a focus point in a card or a scrapbooking layout!
Thanks so much for joining us today ... now go create something and post it on Friendship's Garden blog for a chance to win a guest DT spot! Blessings, Becky
