Proposing an Altered Tag Art Swap : Who's In?!?










Recently I placed an order for 100 manila string/hang tags, and plan on using about half of them for my own art tags, but I thought a GREAT way to use up the remaining half or so, would be to propose an altered hang gift tag swap for my artsy/ blog friends! What it consists of is this: I have enough tags to supply up to 8 people with manila hang tags, complete with string size 4 3/4 x 2 3/8 inches. They would be provided enough tags to alter/collage/embellish in any way their heart desires, and make one altered tag to EACH of the other participants. In other words, if 6 people sign up, they would get 5 tags, to give to the other 5 participants. Everyone then would recieve a tag from everyone who joined in. I think it would be tons of fun to see how other creative people make each gift tag their own work of art, and to share them with others. I would send the tags out, then in turn you would send them back to me after your art has been completed on them (2 weeks at the most). I would then divide them up and send the completed altered tags to the members of the swap. From start to finish, this swap would take approximately 3-4 weeks. I need the names and addresses of those that would like to join in, and I will take the first 8 people who sign up. Get creative, share with other artists, and receive goodies in the mail, all for free! So who's in !?!

I love that tag with the flower on it! A nice twist on cardmaking, doing tags instead.

I'm so glad to have found your blog.
