Red, White, and Blue Tag Swap


Happy 4th of July!!!

4th july tag swap

   This was my very first tag swap I’ve done.  I had a ton of fun making these!  all the participants made 17 tags each and sent them to Jessica (the host of the swap) to be made into a tag book.  

All of the tags were the jumbo 4 3/4 x 2 3/8 size

I used a piece of vintage red/white/and blue streamer and the clipart from a vintage schoolbook.  of coarse I had to use glitter on the edges to make it fancy!  I used a stamp on the back to make it look like fireworks.

I just have to say that Blanca’s tag smells Soooo good! she sell packs of them in her ETSY shop. I think that Jessica used Blanca’s tags for the ones she made.  they made the entire package smell yummy!

a big huge thank-you to Jessica for hosting this swap and for sending me these fun goodies (below)!
