      I absolutely love all the techniques you use on the tags. However, I just can't find a way to incorporate the tags into my layouts and don't have the space to just display them.

      Is there anyway you could do a project/video using the techniques and ways to use kit leftovers on a canvas or other medium than a tag? Especially now that we are entering gift giving season. I would love to give some wonderfully created canvases as gifts. Please think about it for those of us that just can't use another tag.

        Oh great idea Kim. I always see pretty tags people have made but never know how to use them on a layout.

          I use the tags as present toppers. Stick them on a present. Everyone in my family now expects them!!! You can also personalize them and make them more special!

            My family would just toss them out. I do have friends that would love a canvas to hang on the wall.

              I never think to put my tags on layouts, but I have, in the past, made tags, then put them on a card. They look nice with a plain coordinating color for a background, Or you could layer the background with another piece with a punch edges. A border stamp would also look nice on a card, then just slap the tag on.

                Kim…..the first 'tover tag I created I adhered to a 5 x 7 Canvas and it was perfect!! Great piece of wall art!!

                The second 'tover tag…..I made into a mini album to give as a gift.

                The reason for the Technique tags is it is a mini canvas for me to work on to show techniques that you can incorporate into your layouts, mini's or canvases…..kinda a jumpin off point!!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                  Thanks for the examples and explaination Lynne. Guess, with all the past tags and Timmy tags that I have done, I am just over the whole tag thing. I have so many stuffed in a drawer. I just want to work on a different palette. You know something different.

                            Thanks for the link Vicky. I've got an old photo album full of tags – I just love them but really don't know what to do with them all. However, I often use them as a kickstart when I've got no inspiration, so I thought I might make them into a book but some of them are so 3d that would be difficult! Hoping some idea will come along eventually.

                            I bring Tims tags out each year to decorate the house at Christmas – now filling three rooms !lol

                            PS Love all the technique tutorials Lynne. My Sunday afteoon viewing!

                            Those Timmy tags would make great Christmas oaments (back them up onto stiff board) or use your tags to make Christmas cards too – I did in a very simple way see this – http://simplypaperandcreativity.blogspot.ca/2012/11/tu-tags-into-cards-helmarpion-design.html
