Hi All!  I've received fun package from Altered Pages for this event sometime ago.  I could imagine so many possibilities with these old book pages in many languages, sizes and themes, in addition to a lot of ribbons, laces and embellishments, even um rubber stamp sheet.
I love the collage sheet with vintage girls faces and doll poem.

My project turned out something recycle. I found this tag was too cool to toss, it's made of chipboard and interesting shape, even ball chain attached, so kept them for my art project, and this is great opportunity to use.

  1. I like all the layers on your tag. Very nice!

  2. Kazuko, this tag is awesome. I loved the clothing tag and its shape that you had saved. All of the pieces fit so well, yet look so random. I hope you're hanging this tag in a special place so you may enjoy it often because it's certainly inspiring!

  3. What a wonderful tag and thank you for sharing how it all came together. I would never have thought of using Staz On to stain charms. Thanks so much for joining us at Altered Pages this week!

  4. WOW I love how you incorporated all the Altered Pages elements! Awesome tag!

  5. Fabulous vintage style tag. Love how you incorporated that tag and other embellishments with the larger tag. TFS

  6. Really love your vintage tag and would love to create it! Thank you for the tutorial and all the steps! Beautifully done!
