8 ways to incorporate tags on your projects

I love using tags on my projects. They are a fun way to add a little texture and interest to any project. Here are 8 ways to incorporate tags on your projects. :)

The one about the lemon curd tarts
1. Your titlework.

This faux leather tag came as part of retail packaging. One side had the brand name and the other side was blank....perfect for me to add some stickers and make it my titlework tag. The stickers didn't quite fit on the small tag so I tilted the letters and turned it into a stylistic you didn't know! *LOL*

The story about the cheese tarts
2.  Part of your titlework.

And when you have a longer title...*winks*

3. Frame small photos.

Tags are perfect for framing small photos in your travel journal.

The heat wave adventure
4. Your journaling.

When your layout is too busy with patterns, just add your journaling to a tag and tuck it in somewhere. :)

5. Additional text embellishment.

I love tags that have text on it that is relevant to my layout. It can be incorporated as part of a design element while serving a practical purpose too.

6. Pull-out elements for journaling.

When you have to incorporate a lot of journaling, try pull-out tags. This keeps your design clean and neat and it's also fun to pull out the tags to read the journaling.

7. Mat for embellishments.

Try using a tag as a mat for creating an embellishment cluster. Here I used the tag to add my textural element (the twine) and it also serves as a mat for the fussy-cut leaves.

The Yam circus
8. Design element to anchor a grid-style layout.

Here I used a tag with a pretty tassel to break up the busy patterns and help guide the eye to the photos.

There you have it...8 ways to incorporate tags on your projects. Do you use tags on your projects? What are your fave ways to use tags?
