The Collector

The current challenge theme at DragonsDream blog, Tag It On is to use the color orange and a letter(s)


I finally stopped resisting the purchase of these fun letter punches.  After punching enough letters for my words, there are extra letters not used.  I saw on Pinterest where someone had used extra sticker letters on a background and then painted over them.  Yes, I glued each individual letter down on this background.  The patience I possess to do some tedious things even shocks me.


I used the piece I punched the letters from for the backside of my tag.  


I love tags!

I have been away from paper play for too long. I hadn't seen that punch set. You did wonderful things with them. Love what you did to the back as well as the front of this tag.

Well, how fun was that? BUT….to glue down all those teeny tiny little letters……EIKES!!! Like you said, talk about patience! Holy cow! Love the punch out letter set. Those will serve you well for years knowing you!

Very cute tag, and you have WAY more patience than me. I never could have done it. BTW....how many letters got glued to your fingers? or is that just something I would do? Love to see the date stamp as that was my "baby's" 36 birthday.

Annie it is always the little details that make something special and this Tag is uber special. Hope you have really good tweezers for keeping track of those letters. Love that you even used the "scraps" on the back of the tag. Creative Tag Bliss Dear...

I also wondered how you managed to stick down the letters without getting the glue all over the front and your fingers.
I like this minimalist tag, and a blackbird and orange together make a good couple. I like the three strips of thread too, very arty.

I love this tag! Funny, I saw that punch at the store and thought "who would ever have the patience to work with these tiny letters?" Now I know the answer to that question. YOU! Love the threads running down too. Very unique.

Wow, such an amazing idea and you really spent a lot of time in glueing all these letters. A fantastic tag. Thanks for dreaming with us at Dragons Dream Tag It On.
