HALLOWEEN TAG SWAP - Mailing Date - MEMBERS CLOSED - September 30th

Post by AdminBarb on Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:35 pm

This is a Group Swap.  You will make a tag for each member of the group (limit will be 11) and send to the hostess for re-distribution and mailing. You will need to send return postage to the hostess (me) as well.  You should mail them to me by September 30th so I can return them to everybody in time to use for Halloween .

The Tags will be #8 Size .  You may use Ranger #8 tags in any color as your base. I find that the black ones work well for Halloween !
But you can use the Manila or Kraft colored ones too. I like these because the holes are reinforced. Some people neglect to reinforce their tag holes themselves.
In the past, I have had people send tags made with their own cardstock and it has usually been disappointing because their cardstock is too thin and flimsy to make a nice tag. Therefore, I am asking that you buy a pack of tags as your base. They are not expensive and are available at almost all local craft stores. You get 20 tags in a package, so you can use 10 for this swap and save 10 for later when we do the Christmas Tags.

The THEME of the tags is HALLOWEEN.  They can be " Cutesy" or Scary or Spooky or Steampunk , or whatever you like. There is lots of inspiration on Pinterest and also on Tim Holtz's Web Site for doing these.  Please finish the tags on front and back. The back should at least have pretty paper on it, or have been stamped, inked, painted, or something to make it attractive. The front of the tag should contain Embossing, Die Cuts, Stenciling, Stamping, Glitter, Bling, RIbbons, Charms, or whatever you wish to make it AWESOME !!  
There should be a nice long ribbon or twine tie included on the tag in order to tie it onto a bag, or make a pretty bow.

I know this seems early to post it but I wanted to get the idea out there for you " Early Birds" to get started !!

Thanks for your time and efforts in being a part of our group !  Have fun with these !!

I hope I got everyone on the list. We have 11 members, so you need to send me 10 tags . Return Postage should be about $3.50 , Checks or cash or money orders, or Paypal (as long as you know how to send it without fees being charged ) - Those who send $5.00 bill will get $1. back - so it covers my cost on envelopes and labels ....thanks - I dont like sending metal coins in the mail but I will if you ask me too.

Have fun creating Halloween tags everyone. Right now I am devoting all my time to repairing the house and outbuildings, plus dealing with an unruly lawn. Finally mailed all sorts of forms to various businesses. Hopefully when the next swap comes up, I will be able to sign up.

I hope you all have seen the AWESOME video that Beverly Gray did for us about the Tag Swap... her tags are really cute and I just love the way she put in a "plug" for our group with the video.
One of these days I will have to learn how to make videos and put them on YouTube for you all.!

THANK YOU SO MUCH BEVERLY !!
