Recycled Tag Tutorial



I have never EVER purchased gift tags- once again why buy when you can create! I have been recycling clothing and merchandise tags for a while now and the holidays are the perfect time for this simple project.


I keep a stash of recycled tags on hand in my studio ( I always save tags in fun shapes and unique sizes!)



Simply paint over tags- I painted mine with simple white acrylic paint for a clean slate and then started creating!


I stitched...




I beaded....



I dripped....


I collaged.... my way to an entire collection of unique tags for all of my holiday gifts!
