Halloween Gift Tag

Have you been playing along with us this month and sharing your tag art?  Today I have a gift tag project that really holds a gift card.

To make this tag gift card, you need two tags and two pieces of card stock.  I made a hinge to hold the tags together by measuring the distance along the straight edge of the tag by 2 inches wide.  I used my Scor Board to make sure the fold is perfectly centered and straight.

I used ScorTape to hold the hinge and cards together with a touch of white glue for stability.

I cut the pocket freehand.  These tags are 3 1/2 inches wide, so I made the front of the pocket 3 1/4 inches, PLUS a half inch extra for folding on the back.  This was also attached with ScorTape and little bit of white glue.

I covered the front tag and the front of the pocket with Corazonitos Sabor paper.  It's a really pretty black and gray swirl pattern that's great for Halloween.

I chose some of my favorite Halloween collage images from the Altered Pages web site and this wonder…

tagapalooza--tags and more tags, all sorts of tags!

Okay, I might use tags when I make stuff.  Maybe.

This book is full of colored tags with quotes and stamping and collage images, with jute for pulls

Tags made from patterned papers--these were for an Altered Pages Christmas Alphabetica kit.

Another book full of tags that are books, "bound" together with my favorite lightbulb shaped pins.

Even in altered books, pockets full of tags and collage images can add a great interactive element to the piece:

Here is a list of my very favorite Altered Pages tag stuff . . .
lightbulb shaped safety pins, for binding tags to tags and adding:
beads
transit tokens
ribbons and silky seam binding and tulle
bakers twine and jute
a little shine with German Scrap or, even easier, these gold border stickers
flowers!!!!!!
any kind of border embellishment, like THESE paper ones, or THIS stamp

Tag Along Treat Box

I love tags. I decided to take my tags and try my hand at morphing them into a tag box.  I love that all the great goodies I have can take regular manilla tags and make them into an amazing project. I hope that you like my video and can't wait to see your feedback. I also hope that you will try out the Tag Challenge!

Alice's Tag

Alice in Wonderland is always a favorite. She got into my head and I couldn't stop thinking about her...so my next tag is all about Alice.

I began with our jumbo tag and grabbed the "Alice" colors of paper, along with embellishments and the original art stamp plate from the Muse. 


I like to get double duty from supplies, so I often use things that were meant for other things! (does that make sense?)
Layering the papers I found that I really liked the soft line of the black and white die cut paper placed on the bold chevron stripe. To round out the patterns I chose the fleur de lis.
I created a pocket and inserted the mini playing cards of the Queen of Hearts and a Jack of Spades.   
Nex, I stamped Alice, cut out from the stamp plate and used our acrylic block with double sided tape to add her image on bold red paper.  I bit of washi tape and a small rose charm finished her.

Then a bit of bling with rhinestone cup chain was added top and bottom. The crowning grace is the volumin…
