Tags for Boys

Yesterday I did the most incredible thing...... I touched an elephant!
Wow. I know that elephants are not called giants for nothing but somehow when you are standing right next to one looking up at him the true meaning of that phase becomes very apparent.

We went to a sanctuary where they have two elephants who through some very unfortunate circumstances have lived with humans for most of their lives. When the new owners tried to reintroduce them to the wild understandably they where now used to human interaction and would approach unsuspecting guests to the game park. This, as you can imagine, lead to a number of very frightening encounters, from the human side and so to save the elephant's lives they have been placed in this sanctuary where they roam free but of their own free will come to the visitors centre every day to see the guests. Over time this has developed into a scheduled attraction where it is now possible to feed and interact with these giants and all I can say is that it's an amazing experience. 

Anyway enough wildlife chatter and on to the cards which are actually not cards today but gift tags.
The tags I have for you today are all for boys.

I am always on the look out for fun stickers, charms, buttons or other kinds of embellishments which I can use for my tags. There is an endless scope out there you just have to keep your eyes open.

For the first two lots of tags I used stickers. The space and vehicle stickers are 3D.

I added glitter glue to the Space tags for a bit of bling

All these tags are hand cut and the sentiments are computer generated.

These little cars are wooden scrapbook embellishments

I did faux stitching around all or part of the tags to complete the look.
 Tag making is a great way to use up scraps of paper so I'm not sure if I will be able to supply all the brands or source locations for these papers.
