Tag Tuesday challenge # 48

The Tag Tuesday challenge this week is to recycle, repurpose or reuse something in your tag. You can create the tag from a recycled package as I did or simply make an embellishment for your tag from something that's repurposed.

For my tag this week i went for a vintage style, I used a paper bag for the background that i kept because it was begging to be used at some point for something (the images are printed on the paper bag), the Handel at the bottom is from an old jewellery box which i screwed in to the chip tag, the knob at the top of the tag is also from an old jewellery box.
The believe sign was in my stash so i twisted some wire through i and fixed it to the knob and just inked the edges of the tag
I hope this fits in with Louise's challenge

You nailed the challenge, love what you have done with all of your treasurers. It amazes me how if we just put on our thinking caps we can recycle almost everything. Thanks for sharing your talents.

Crissi, I loved that you used an old lunch sack. Great stamping and embellishing on this tag. (I have that same believe charm....waiting to be used:)

It does fit, and so beautifully so, Crissi. I love the look of the jewelry with the paper bag. Now that's like opposites attract! Gorgeous work.

I love your tag. Fun and whimsical. Using a paper bag is a great idea. I haven't done that in a long time. I must give it a try again.
