New Mini Tags - "Footloose"

This week, I was able to sneak in a hour or so to do something creative. I decided to make these fun little tags with legs.
I purchased some 7Gypsies mini tags from Joann's. They were so cute, I love the designs on them and couldn't wait to make something with them. Each tag measures 1" x 2 3/4".
I started by adding legs to each tag. I almost felt like stopping there, because they already had such character.
But, I decided to use my little bits and pieces and collage each tag a bit more.
 I added different types of heads to each tag and then added other embellishments like numbers...
 and little quotes...
 and pieces of black and white stripped paper
Then I usually take out my favorite white pen and finish with some doodling. I hope you give these little tags a try...they're quick to do and helps use up some of your small embellishments. Enjoy!
