December: Tag You are It! by: Stacey Michaud

Happy December everyone!  I am sharing an easy to make, yet attractive tag with you today!  Tags are super versatile...they jazz up a gift, can take the place of a card and look great all grouped together!  I used the World Traveler line to create my tag.

I started with the graphic and very usuable polka dotted paper!  It provides a nice neutral background with a pop of color!  I layered some strips featuring the map paper!  Maps are so hot right now!  The Enjoy the Journey is a sticker from Teresa's new sticker packets!  Here is a tip...

I like for my elements to have a bit of pop.  Stickers seem flat to me sometimes.  I solved this dilemma by mounting my sticker onto a smaller piece of cardstock.  I then used foam squares to give it dimension.  Another trick to make any sticker lose its stick...rub the adhesive with cornstarch or baby powder!

I don't think a tag or card is complete without texture.  I added it in two ways by knotting the tulle ribbon and using the twine to hang my star.  The brad finishes it off and gets rid of the hole on the top of the tag!

How do you use tags in your scrappy world?  However you do it...enjoy the journey!
