7 ways to use tags on your projects.


Have you noticed that I really love using tags on my projects? I had one of those phases when I loved buying patterned paper with tag designs on them...Echo Park Paper and Crate Paper were my faves. Well, the buying has stopped but the using up part hasn't. *winks* Here are 7 ways to use tags on your projects.

There was already a lot going on on this layout so I "broke" up the grid design with a embellished tag.

I also have a tag fetish and love to incorporate them on my cards or decorated bags. You have cleverly used them on your scrapbook pages. I like how you used the lined business like card stock papers too...I never know how to use them attractively. Thanks for sharing!

I don't use tags all that often. When I do, it's almost always for a title or journaling.
