I've recently had to make some tags and I realized how much I LOVE doing them. I got to thinking how perfect just a simple sentiment on top of a tag and some coordinating embellishments make such an encouraging little message or... added with others... words of wisdom to hang here and there.

I used the sentiment single, "Believe" that speaks so deeply to me. I had a hard time for years learning I needed to STILL believe. And, I try very hard to keep my kids in that frame of mind. Positive thoughts about positive things can never hurt.

I used my Cuttlebug folder, "D'Vine Swirl" to give my 2nd layer a bit of texture. My sentiment was stamped on a Circle Nestabilitie and layered over a scalloped circle. I also added a flourish punch to the lower corner and mounted a small butterfly on it. Another to the top left and a few Magnolia roses... one small swirl clip and some added fibers to the top and I am ready to start a banner of encouragement.

I hope you try a few tags and I bet you find all kinds of ways to use them. Have a great day!!! *smile*
