Decorating tags is a quick and easy project that gives you the satisfaction of completion in a short amount of time. I wanted to have some tags on hand to use in my art journal, so painted up six tags to use.
I was fortunate enough to acquire a batch of these vintage tags, but new ones work just fine too.
Since I don’t know for sure how I am going to use these yet, I went ahead and decorated both sides. I used book pages, a cigar wrapper, geological map bits, paper scraps, paint and alcohol sprays. I used a black Flair pen for the black borders, then ran over them with a wet paint brush to give a washed look.
I finished up with a bit of stamping, but left room for writing or more embellishing later. Finally, I took the messy paper that I protected my table with, and used it as a journal page! Even art should be recycled!
