My Creative Space

My creative space has been fun this week and I thought I’d show some tags I’ve made ... a case of recycling the tags that come with clothing and pages from magazines.

I love clothing tags … they come in all sorts of colours and shapes and the tags of many clothing companies are quite distinctive … the red Esprit tags come immediately to mind.

And who doesn’t have an excess of magazines around the house. Well, I do thanks to Miss C who always seems to have a few kicking around.

So I like to reuse the tags to add to gifts … sometimes I write on the tag and sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I add a separate tag with a message. It just depends on how I feel at the time.

Cheap and fun.

That's such a great idea. I ahte throwing out those really nice tags - especially when they use the really thick cardboard. Another collection for the craft stash!!

This is such a great and fun idea. Those esprit tags especially are good because they are so lovely and thick too!

I love your idea. I have been making tags too, but using my paper art supplies and they are all the same size and shape!!

Enjoy the weekend.

Cool idea!
I often use clothing tags for bookmarks: some of the clothing tags are so pretty: I cant throw them out!
