Tags, Tags and more Tags!

I have been loving tags on layouts recently and couldn’t wait to make a layout
 focusing on tags.

For this layout, I created my own tags from the GCD Studios Special Delivery collection

 For that, I used Jack (#2043) and Zach (#2048) papers.  The little cards were prefect for tags.  I use a pre-made tag for my template and then traced and cut the cards into tags.  I punched 5/8 circles from black cardstock and adhered them to the tag.  Lastly, I punched a hole through each tag and added twine. 

Here are some close ups:

GCD Studio’s Special Delivery papers: George (#2037), Dillon (#2040), Guido (#2042),  Jack (#2043), Zach (#2048) and Spencer (#2046);  Paperclips (#2054);  Brads (#2053); Alpha Stickers (#2051) and Label stickers (#2052).  Other: cardstock and twine.
