I guess there could be two crafting Skeeter93s in the world, but I'm glad it's you. Welcome to RSC!

Lol, it has still been hot here in Texas too, lol. Finally got a cool down the last 2 days. note I said cool down, gonna get back into the mid 60's this weekend.

Welcome to RSC skeeter93, you might want to try some of the technique tag swaps. Great way to give tags a try and all the ones you get back are then mini "how to examples" of a particular technique.

Like so many others, I use tags on the fronts of cards that I make.

I have used a four identical tags and taped them together on the sides and made a votive holder. Set a small battery-candle in the middle and it is an excellent decoration.

I also keep my extra embellishments, small die-cuts, ribbon pieces and left-over images so when I do need a tag for any gift (plate of cookies, etc.), I can make a quick tag that really looks like I worked hard on it!

I have a couple of clear plastic Cd pocket wall hanging things (picked them up for a dollar each eons ago) that I put tags, atc's, etc into. You just never know when you are going to come across great, cheap stamp art display pieces.

I just got a pic of the tag I made for a monthly swap. It's pretty straight forward in it's construction, but...

I punched out 3 sizes of snowflake on the manilla tag (it's not pink). then I backed the tag with a shipping label. To remove the 'sticky' from the snowflake openings, I sprinkled with talcum powder & wiped it off.

When held up to light the snowflakes really show up.

Here's another view of the tag. My friend held it up to the light so you can better see how the snowflakes show up.

I considered stamping on the reverse of the tag so the image/pattern would show up when held up to light, but decided not to mess with that for this piece. Maybe next time.

I might be fun to use ultra fine glitter instead of the powder on the snowflake sticky. I think I would try that with a white or hologram glitter.

That would work, Fab. I've also covered the 'sticky' with common table salt or sand. I get the sand where aquarium supplies are sold. Which reminds me of something...
