Sweet Recycled Halloween tags

If you are like me , you collect little bits of paper, buttons and shiny tidbits. I particularly can't throw away garment tags. Since I was in the fashion clothing business, I know how much time and work goes into them. But as a paper artist it's where I am able to give them their second life! 

For Retro Cafe Art , I took three tags and painted them with acrylic paint, them stamped them and added orange roses. The cRetro Cafe Art cutouts are a bat, masks,  mini frame, web and  a spider. Of course there is black glitter and black lace too. I let the tag cords just as I found them!

Hope you will recycle something wonderful this week.
artfully yours, gerri




  1. Love your recycling and fabulous contrasting tags, the black, white and orange palette is superb.

  2. Hi Gerri! Love your recycled tags...I love keeping my old tags too. But I used to work for a Fashion Designer and sometimes I just can't bring myself to alter them. LoL. Since moving I've had to downsize, and now. I'm wishing I had altered a lot more. =)
    Hope you're doing well.

  3. Love these Gerrie! Thanks so much. ~Diane
