Art Sugar Gift Tags

If you are familiar to swapping, you may notice that often, in addition to the expected swap item, your swap partner will toss a little extra something into the envelope.  Papers, fibers, all kinds of ephemera - my name for this stuff is art sugar.  I have accumulated quite a collection of art sugar - it's usually stuff that I would never think to acquire for myself.  The lottery theme this month on the altereddesigns group is to make gift tags using art sugar.  Gift tags are different from regular tags in that the expectation is that you will actually use them on a gift, rather than hoard them.  They also need a space to put a name or message.
The base of the tags is some gelli printed paper I made a couple of weeks ago, but nearly everything else is from my art sugar stash.  Even the fancy punched hole at the top is from a  punch that a friend I made through online swapping sent to me.  You can add a name in the oval, and the backs are white, for more words, if you want.

Some of this art sugar is years old - it is good to see it get used!
