I used to make tiny note pads from vintage playing cards and sendup with a small collection of ones that I liked too much to use. Here are a few of them.

Tag Collage Challenge -Tags 4 and 5

Got busy this past weekend and collaged 2 tags.

Tag number 4 uses hand made papers, a vintage document and a coffee filter that I stamped. (The coffee filter is a tiny one that fits a Keurig machine. The filter is the shape of the basket and has a round top which I tear off. Perfect for collaging!)

Tag number 5 uses some hand made marbled paper, a vintage document and a postage stamp.

New Year, New Challenge

Time for a new collage challenge. This year, it's the "100 Tag" challenge.

I purchased a box of 100 shipping tags, made by Avery. (Avery Manilla "G" Shipping tags 4.75 length x 2.37 width). Now I have to say, I used to buy these all the time and a box of 100 tags cost me less than $5. I believe these are a discontinued item (not available on the on the Avery site) so they were hard to find. I was only able to find boxes of a thousand tags and that's a lot of tags! I purchased this 100 pack on Ebay for about $13. For some reason, on Amazon some vendors are charging over $300 for the same item... so shop around, 100 packs can still be found. Also, I like the ones that come with string, not the wires which I purchased by mistake (item number 11005 has the string, 11011 has the wire).

Stay tuned for the first collage!
