Made some really fun tags for my colleagues over the weekend using distress inks and random left over embellishments. Its really a great way to de-stash that pack of embellishments you didn’t know how to use, or leftover alphas, random chipboard embellishments and print-and-cuts.
Other great techniques for embellishing your tag would be to have a centre focus or large embellishment to draw attention to the centre of the tag. Washi tapes and laces work great to add some symmetry to the tags, not forgetting adding distress inks to the edges gives a bit of colour and texture to the tag as well. :)
