My first experimentation's with Acyclic tags

Last Christmas I was given as part of my Christmas box of goodies, from my wonderful and very talented crafting friend Elaine some acyclic tags. Now they have sat in my little basket of to be alter items, waiting for the inspiration to come, ok the inspiration took 10 months to arrive, but arrive it did. So what did I decide to do with them I took out fairly big, little tag, isn't that an oxymoron?. I then decided to stamp with them with a background stamp, any stamp would do for this I used black staz- on in to do it with. I then found a photo of an eagle I had printed out for a layout and never used, well I hate waste so I stuck that on the oblong tag on same side I stamped, I used silicone glue, I not sure if you should, but I did. I then used thin black card and stuck that to the back of the photo, one reason was to give it a neat finish the other was to make it pop more on viewing I then added some wire and beads and a little bit of ribbon and hey presto a handbag tag or craft bag tag, a nice little gift. The second tag I used  a image from a sheet of images also given in my box of Christmas goodies. I must admit to having a bit of help with the beading as my hand would not let me thread them but the ideas were mine and hubby helped he he Credit where credits due.

 I am still working on the one stamp how many ways I have made 1o items so far number 11 is being made today I might unveil at that point lol but then again I might carry on as I have just thought of another idea, as I type.
