Another ALTERED TAGS Swap - Postmark by December 31st

For the last group mail art exchange of the year, let's have another Altered Tag Swap.  It has been a while since the previous one.  
An Internet search for Altered Tag Art Images will spark
your creativity! 

Two sizes of small tags, also teabag tags
I remember a very fun art session of dipping crumpled shipping tags into several colors of rubber stamp inks, then rubber stamping and collaging over them after they were dry.  
Wadding them up first seemed to help them 
absorb the ink.  
Watercolors might work in a similar way...

Any design or theme.
Optional media might include ink, paint, pencil, markers, crayon. 

Materials might include puffy stickers, fabric appliques, lace, doilies, thin embellishments like charms, sequins or beads, postage stamps, rubber stamped images, embossing, torn text collage, Magic Mesh netting, etc.

You may include twine, yarn, ribbon, etc. to make a loop, but it would be better to NOT KNOT thick yarns as they may make your pieces thick, and could possibly cost more to send through mail.  

SIZE:  Any size up to 6" long

You may send up to four tags.  
(You will get back the same number you send, 
each from a different artist)

  • Sturdy Envelopes:  Include a 9" x 6" Kraft envelope or large greeting card envelope (8" x 5+1/2", for example), self-addressed to you.  Your swap host will use this to mail your return tags.  Also, put your own address in the upper left hand corner of the envelope.  If you need me to use my own large envelope, let me know and include two extra self-address mailing labels please.
