My stamping adventures

Tags with friends

Yesterday Leslie and I went over to our friend Roberta's house to make tags....and boy did we!  I happened on this quick and easy technique where you cut pattern paper into thirds then tape/glue to tags well, we took this technique one step further and die cut tags from cardstock and pattern paper so they were the same size.  Next take three pattern paper tags together and cut into you have the makings for three tags at once.  Arrange the pattern pieces out into three tags then tape to cardstock tags and when you are done
 you have three background tags in no time.  The fun thing is you can just use these as tags or make them into tag cards by scoring about 3/4" down from the top of the back tag then tape decorated tag to the scored section only of the back tag. 
When I finish my tags I will show better pics.  Another fun thing to do is to stamp an image on top of the pattern paper tags.  This is something Roberta loves to do...check out her tags and you can see the stamped bird under the Sizzix alterations bird cage with bird die.  Just know that these tags are not finished.  We got carried away taping pattern papers to the tags and by the time we notice the time it was 4:00 p.m.!  A good day.
