I decorated tags to fill the pockets in my Altered Book and I think they also make good bookmarks. Notice the beribboned paper clip! It can be a book mark also.
Tags come in all shapes and sizes. The stationary stores carry them and of course the hobby stores. You can make your own from a punch or just by cutting pieces from various card stock or scrap book paper. If there is no hole a paper punch does the trick and they are easily reinforced with plain or coloured reinforcing stickers.
The heavier manila ones hold up well to all kinds of wet techniques.
I rubbed on some distress ink with my foam tool and then I drew the stamp pad around the edges for an aged look.
I sprayed some Pearl Mist onto my Teflon sheet and tried to use the plastic grid. It wasn't that successful but I don't think there is a right or wrong just serendipity's. lol
A stamp,some words, some doodled x's and some ribbon. The grand kiddies will be impressed.
I have been thinking about the benefit of working in a series and this little tag illustrates a good reason for doing so. The tags at the beginning were pretty much done in an afternoon of fiddling. No pressure and whatever happens is good. To do one tag as an example in a tutorial creates pressure and the lack of spontaneity shows. I think there is something to, 'the more the merrier'.
Now Tag! Your turn to make bookmarks!
