tagapalooza--tags and more tags, all sorts of tags!

Okay, I might use tags when I make stuff.  Maybe.
cat themed book, with pockets full of tags

This book is full of colored tags with quotes and stamping and collage images, with jute for pulls

Tags made from patterned papers--these were for an Altered Pages Christmas Alphabetica kit.

Another book full of tags that are books, "bound" together with my favorite lightbulb shaped pins.

Even in altered books, pockets full of tags and collage images can add a great interactive element to the piece:

Here is a list of my very favorite Altered Pages tag stuff . . .
lightbulb shaped safety pins, for binding tags to tags and adding:
beads
transit tokens
ribbons and silky seam binding and tulle
bakers twine and jute
a little shine with German Scrap or, even easier, these gold border stickers
flowers!!!!!!
any kind of border embellishment, like THESE paper ones, or THIS stamp

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Get on Over!
