Tag you're it!! Blog Hop

For November's Blog Hop our challenge is to create something that has tags as the focal point, for example Gift Tags, Journal/Mini Album made from tags, a card or scrapbook page that incorporates a tag. I have been inspired by the previous Paper Wings Blog Hops and I am looking forward to more inspiration this month. (Just a reminder that the gallery at Paper Wings is open to all, and full of The Angel Company goodness!! Click HERE)
For my tag project I made this tag folder-

 I used a piece of cardstock cut to 4.25"x 12 " and scored at 2" and 7". The  corners were cut off to make the short piece a flap. I then covered the flap with some Reece Designer Paper. A narrow strip of cardstock and more of the Designer Paper was attached to the base with flat top eyelets. The flap tucks underneath the cardstock to keep the folder closed. Another narrow strip of Reece was added to the bottom of the folder and then layered with a coordinating ribbon. (The tab was included in the Reece paper collection.)

 I adhered a clear treat bag with Sticky Strip to the inside of my folder to hold my tags. (I made a notch in the top of the baggie to make removing the tags easier. I just used a circle punch and inserted it half way.)

Here are the 3 different tags I made.

Both of these tags used a new Christmas Stamp set Hung On A Tree. (The Merry Christmas is from Trendy Greetings.) Both are colored with Copics and layered onto cardstock. (The Glossy Accents wasn't dry when I took my pictures so it looks a little cloudy. It will dry clear.)
This adorable little penguin is a Gift With Purchase stamp. (You can get him for FREE with a $30 purchase.) Peace is from the Tag Tidbits set. He was also colored with Copics.  The corners were rounded with the Corner Chomper. (You could also include some of the tags from the paper collection in your folder. My folder is for Christmas, but you could make one for any time of the year.... it would make a cute and thoughtful gift too.)

Thanks for stopping by!!  Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop and hopefully you will be inspired to make /use some tags.
