Tags R Fun!

Pin It


TGIF hoarding card-makers and welcome to the weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!

This week Sharon says, "who doesn't like to make a tag or two!?! Tags are small canvases to decorate that we pass on with a gift or use to embellish a card or other project. Today we are making tags ... these could be Christmas tags or ANY tag you might need for any occasion. Whether it be a tag to hang on a bag handle or gift, or an adornment for a card or some other project, let's just have some fun today making tags!"

For my tag project, I created a holiday card embellished with a tag that could be easily removed for gift giving:

To play along in this week's challenge ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a paper project featuring a tag. Then, upload your project to your blog or online photo gallery and visit Sharon's blog, located HERE and link your project up to Mr. Linky, located HERE.

When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime164" so that we can find your project.
