Recycling art - gift tags

Here are some gift tags I've been making using sketch paintings on paper that have collected over the years. They weren't good enough to sell as is but made for interesting designs to create one of a kind tags with. I just got a new multi colored stamp pad (that I LOVE and I want to buy all of them!) so I'm playing with my own hand carved stamps as accent pieces on colored cardstock. It's an overcast day today so I just took this shot to give you an idea of what I'm working on. I'd like to photograph them and list them in my Etsy shop as soon as I have a nice sunny day to shoot.

In other news, I'd like to extend a great big THANK YOU to Tsvetelina of www.pearlk2.etsy.com/. I was the winner of this gorgeous bag on her blog giveaway and I absolutely love it! I've already used it packing it with heavy bead boxes and other crafty things going to a friend's house and it handled the load no problem with style. Take a look at her shop or go visit her other sites at www.pearlforu.blogspot.com/, www.facebook.com/pearlforu and www.twitter.com/pearl2k.

Those are beautiful! Very cool. You could bind them into little artist's books as well... with just one hole and a book ring or ribbon.
