Now it's time for some wonderful tag inspiration from our design team. Behold these gorgeous tag creations! This first tag was created by Lynette Carroll and it's just gorgeous! It features Olde Curiosity Shoppe and it's a true work of art! Here is what Lynette had to say about it!

"I decided to layer and decorate the tag as I would any miniature piece of art - with lots of hidden details. I wanted to use something different to hang my tag by so I cut a piece of chain from an old necklace and threaded it through the hole at the top and secured it under the metal clock face. At the base of the tag I cut a small oval piece of the patterned paper and placed it behind the dome on the oval frame. I then linked a piece of chain to the frame and glued the other end underneath the flower, this gave the effect that the flower and frame were hanging together. I would certainly not have decorated a piece of packaging before this challenge but I will now look at my packaging with "new appreciation"." -Lynette Carroll

I LOVE the flowers on the candy box. If anyone knows what die that is, or if there is a tutorial for it I would love to know it. Lynnette's tag is stunning. Demensional layering is one of the things I'd like to work on more.
