Fun tags

This months Ephemera has me playing like a school girl...I used images from Retro Fashions and Nouveau Art and started to make tags that I can give as gifts or put on my Christmas gifts...I had so much fun doing this.
I used assorted pre made tags and also cut a few with my Cricut.  I found an old Sizzix die and cut a dress pattern in several different patterns.  I also cut a few "dress forms" them also, don't understand why, but I really like playing with them.  If you don't have anything premade o cut a dress pattern, it is really easy to make your own, and cut from your scraps, add some little embellishments, a belt or crystal or run them thru a texture machine.I cut out some little purses and placed them on te tag openings.   I used scraps of ribbon for added texture.  Each tag was treated different....I totally inked one, I stamped one, embossed one, and added some Christmas scraps to another.  I even cut one of the dresses from Christmas paper.  Just have fun with will see how carried away you will get, it is like playing with your Barbie again!.
