Tag, tags and more tags

Vintage...valentine...I love it!  I wanted a simple quick project - tags fit the bill!   I didn't want to go buy shipping tags, so I made my own with my Sizzix Tags die and SU!'s Very Vanilla cardstock.  I even made my own "reinforcements". 

I love the collage effect.  This would be great on a smaller scale as a Simply Adorned locket insert!  I made eight tags total, distressing three of them by wearing down the edges and...gasp...spraying with water and crumpling!  Some red ink did bleed a little bit, but it really enhanced the distressed look of the tag.

I think these turned out great!  I believe I am going to use these as tags for Valentine Day treat bags.  If I do, I'll be sure to take pics of that project!  I could even flip them over and journal on the back...using these for a scrapbook page.   You'll probably see these pop up on a project soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
