Tag Reveal Countdown Day 5/6
So I REALLY cheated, and didn't even do anything yesterday. Too much celebrating, I guess. I have mixed feelings about this tag - I really hate my handwriting, but I do love this paper. It's from Sassafras Lass, my favorite source for fun papers - this is the "Whale of a Tale" line (sorry for the earworm, Ab) and it has the cutest sea creatures and pirate elements. For some reason my skinny brown marker wasn't working, so I wrote with the brush end (part of why I'm not fond of the handwriting), so I covered the writing with with my glitter gel pen to at least give it a little sparkle.
In case you've been wondering what I'm doing with all these tags... so far, this is it. I have baskets mounted on the wall to store all of my glitter and glitter glues and flowers, and I've been tying them to the baskets. I love how I'm able to see what I have and keep them off the desk (where they'd just get lost in the clutter).
I keep them around for little gifts and things - the birthday ones are perfect for tying to a gift bag or ribbon on a present, and I think I'm actually going to repurpose the sheep tag as a bookmark, since it's nice and flat.
