Making some Mixed Media tags can be a fun alternative to cardmaking or even scrapbooking! These tags can then be used in journals, albums, home decor, or just given as they are. Leaving the back blank gives plenty of room for writing a special message. Maybe even leave these tags in a public spot or give to a random stranger as an act of kindness to brighten their day!
Today, Irma de Jager is sharing this fun Happy Tag with us! We love how she included some Canvas Corp mini canvas shapes on this tag and the end result is stunning!

This is such a clever and creative use of our Mini Canvas Flags! Adding them to a tag gives a little texture and interest. You can also use them for home decor, layouts, gift tags- endless possibilities! Thanks to Irma for inspiring us with this gorgeous piece!
