Scrap Tiffany - Blog Hop



















Joe Bloggs - Fabric label from a pair of boys' jeans - inked around edges and ribbon inserted in hole.

Welcome to the Scrap Tiffany Blog Hop. Please start at the beginning of the hop here http://www.scraptiffany.com/.

My tip for recycling is to use tags from clothing on your layouts and cards. There are some amazing tags out there, some fabric, some cardboard, some plastic. Some are already immediately useable as is and some can be altered to suit your needs.  I have included a layout and several cards as examples. Why not take a look at those tags when you next make a clothing purchase and see if you can use them in your projects? Happy scrapping.













This card uses two tags, one fabric and one cardboard.



The Sass & Bide tag is from some lingerie and had a lovely ribbon already attached. These are the materials I used. The flower petals and brad are already assembled.
Finished card.

On this card I have done some stamping and colouring as well as added ABC stickers and paper. The Sari label was included as it came with just a little wool through the hole.

Thanks for looking. I hope you like my designs and feel you could incorporate this idea into your own projects.  I'd be happy to have you as a follower.
