WOYWW Wk58

Another week has flown by! This is what is on my desk this week. A few finished tags waiting for me to do something with them. What do you do with the tags that you make? Do you make tags? I like to use tags to 'try things out' but then what do I do with them, well usually I 'string' them all together into a tag book for reference but I would like to do something different this time. So any sugestions?
Here is a closer look at what is on there. A bit of a mess but never mind! Under the scissors are a few first goes with Tims new texture plates, I love these! Haven't acually done anything with them yet just ran them through the Big shot and added some distress inks to see the effect. I am going to play properly later today hopefully!
If you want to see more click here it will take you to Julia's The Stamping Ground where it all happens on a Wednesday!

Love your tags and the desk looks great. I need to find something to do with my tags too at the moment they're in a box.....

I've never made more than a handful of tags exactly because I don't know what I'd do with them afterwards! At least with ATCs you can swap them or something, but I'd never thought of a tag book ... hmmm, thanks for the inspiration!

Love those tags. I sometimes make cards with a pocket to pop in one of the tags or a concertina fold to take more. take a look on my blog 5th July as that card style would be suitable for your tags.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm not a tag maker but do love the ones you have on show this week.

Maybe at Christmas time you can put your tags on a present? Or for birthdays... or maybe just attach them to a card.
Give someone a tag album with nice words for a birthday present.
Ah, the ideas are here... don't know if you could use them though

You have some lovely tags - love the one with the bird. Why not use some of your tags to create some cards, or choose 2 or 3 to mount onto a canvas to create a new work? Or how about making a tag bunting that can hang around the whole of your room!

it does have to be Elnet hairspray - the can is so pretty - its so much better than the tesco value blue stripe brand!

Love the art on your desk. I usually use my tags to put on gifts or make a card to go with them and they co-ordinate as a gift. Love your creative desk. Tracy Evans x

Well, because I'm late visiting, I already know what you've done with the tags - genius gal! They look gorgeous anyway, but will really inspire as they waft gently around the studio.
