Mixed Media Morsels & more

Tips, Ideas, and Inspiration

Yep, I’m still taggin’ along… and this time I’m creating another tag to showcase a handmade embellishment from my Mixed Media Morsels, Dessert #3 video on YouTube. I had so much fun making several embellishments, using up scraps and bits from my stash.

The little dragonfly embellishment I created in the video was a tag in itself, but I’ve chosen to use it as a focal point for my larger tag this month. I added some tiny white dots to the small tag’s border to brighten it up just a bit. Next, I covered a blank tag with a piece of patterned scrapbook paper, then used some stamps to add some floral images and some script in random spots across the tag. I used a black Sharpie marker to draw some tiny scalloped borders on an old book page, then cut them out and glued them around the edge of the tag.

Lastly, I tied the two tags together, allowing the smaller tag to swing freely. I like attaching it in this way, so that I can lift it and add some journaling or a photo, if I choose to do so.

So, my little tag book is growing and I’m really enjoying it. I hope some of you are “taggin’ along” with me, creating some fun tags and making your own little tag book of yummy desserts! If you’re not, it’s never too late to start…

Happy creating!
