The use of tags has become a chosen embellishment for use on scrapbook pages by many scrapbook crafters. Tags represent a great way to extend and enhance the function ability of your pages. They can become their own mini-page on your page. Tags allow for the addition of photographs, captions, decorative mats, journaling, page titles and much more . . . let your creative juices flow.
Tags can be purchased ready made, or you can cut them from templates–as well as create them freehand. There are die-cuts too to help you make needed tags. They can be made from paper, wood, fabric, card stock, metal, sponge, press-board, or other craft materials you can easily cut.
Shapes of tags are primarily: rectangle, square, oval and round, but are not limited by these boundaries. Your own imagination will create the right tag for the right project. Tags can be various sizes: small, medium and large–depending on what your specific need is. They should be so large as to overpower your page, however.
Pre-cut tags can be purchased and your favorite craft or scrapbook outlet, or from a supplier online. There is a myriad of colors, shapes and sizes to choose from. You’ll just have to do some looking.
You can keep them plain–for journaling, or gussy them up some to add to a photo you may be using, or as a simple embellishment of its own. The uses for tags is limited mostly by your own imagination.
