There are so many fun ways to use the new Graphic 45 Tag Album Staples! Here is another great example! This is Susan Lui's tag in the Large size. It features Steampunk Debutante with beautiful chipboards, ribbons and lots of Graphic 45 Metal Staples. This is such a fun and whimsical creation! There is a world of ways you can create a one-of-a-kind work of art with Graphic 45 Staples! Here is what Susan had to say about this marvelous piece!

"I had a whale of a time creating this steampunk-style tag for CHA. I created lots of texture on the tag using fabric, patterned paper, paints, mists and chipboards. And on this mixed media foundation I built my Graphic 45 steampunk tag of images from Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante images and lots of Graphic 45 Staples such as the keys, metal flowers, metal brads and ornate metal key holes. The final tag is a heavyweight. :)" -Susan Lui
