Description

Shipping tags to create art??

Yes! They are everywhere and such a fun surface to play with!
The cardstock is smooth and the small size makes it perfect for when you don’t have that much time to do an art journal spread, or if you just want to work on a small scale.
You will receive a pack of 8 x shipping tags, approx. 8x16cm (just over 3×6.5in).

What can you do with these shipping tags?

1. Turn them into gorgeous mixed media art!

Prep your shipping tags with gesso, paint on them with acrylics or inks
Collage some pretty papers (you will find awesome paper pads here!)…
Finish decorating your new art tags with Liquid Pearls, foil, rub ons, ribbons…
Once you have finished turning a bunch of shipping tags into gorgeous mixed media art tags (trust me, it won’t take long because it gets addictive!), why not add them all onto a binder ring to create a cute little portfolio?

2. Create the most unique gift tags!

Who wouldn’t love to receiving a¬†completely personalised, and handmade gift tag attached to a thoughtful present?
We always throw the wrapping paper away but a beautiful gift tag makes a great keepsake ūüôā

3. Use them to test out new products

Shipping tags come in many sizes and this is the largest one!
Having a small and inexpensive surface to play with ideal to experiment with mixed media products you may have laying around.
Use the shipping tags to test out your stamps, stencils, paint colours, etc to see how they look before using them in your art journal or canvas painting!
Create as many test craft tags as you like without fear of wasting precious journal pages (although if things don’t turn out great, you can always gesso over and start again!).

4. Create reference guides and paint charts for your studio

How about creating super handy quick reference guides and colour swatches to keep at your fingertips when you are creating in your studio?
– Create a paint chart for your Dylusions Paint: divide a tag in 2 columns with each colour swatch one the left and the name of the colour on the right…
РMake another for your Dylusions Ink Sprays: Spray a little of each colour on a separate piece of paper and cut each one into a colour swatch (either a square by hand or use a fun circle/star holepunch). Paste all the swatches into a left column, and right the name of the colour on the right column.
– How about making one for your watercolour pencils and paints, various markers, etc as well?
Then bind them all up with a pretty ribbon or a binder ring so you can easily separate them or add more tags later on.
Nifty, huh?

Really, the possibilities are endless!
