Some ideas to decorate tags

Use stamp pads direct to paper along the edges of the tag
Layer the tag with torn patterned paper
Wrap wire or fibers randomly around the tag
Stipple or chalk across one side so it is not so plain
Hang the tag from your photos or a border
Punch a border along the bottom
String letter beads and wrap wire around tag
Mat the tag
Cut tags in different shapes to match theme of layout
Make a tag shaker box
Tie a ribbon in a bow through the hole
Tear the bottom off
Create a pocket for the tag
Ideas are endless, be creative
