Tag Ideas by Chrystal Riddell

I love doing this section because it always makes me stretch a my comfort zone a little bit. When crafting, I tend to think bigger is easier. A 12x12 page or even a 5x7 card is much easier for me to do than the little things.

I started by using my favorite big tag template to make an over-sized "teacher tag" that I'm sure will be used soon enough! I left the ribbon long in case it needs to be tied around something later. I found this "tag template" attached to our Christmas tree last December, and it promptly found a home on my scrap table.

Once I was motivated, I remembered that the TTT pocket blocks are just that--sized for a library pocket! This "toddler" block was the perfect fit for the wild thing chipboard. This will go in a ziploc with coordinating paper, so that next time I pull it out, I have a ready-made page embellishment!

Next time you have a few minutes, pull out some paper scraps and your transparency stash and see what you can do to get that next page jump-started. Tag, you're it!
