If you are like me, I try to save little things from the trash and reuse them. While cleaning my bread box the other day, I found a little bag full of those rectangular tags that close the bread bags. It seems like a waste of resources to use them just to close another plastic bag when they have so much potential for transformation through art.

For this swap you will create cards containing at least one "transformed" bread tag as part of your card. Any theme is welcome.

• Make sure your cards are made out of sturdy material and are 2.5" x 3.5"

• Please sign up by posting to this thread.

• Include your Username, swap name, your location, and the date on the back of each card.

• Each card should be sent in an individual clear protective sleeve.

• A hostess card is not necessary, but if you decide to send me one, I will treasure it.

• If you need to withdraw, please just let me know.

• When you are ready to mail your cards: send me a PM for my address. I haven't moved so if you have my Chuluota address from previous swaps, it is still the same.

• Please include a large address label or a piece of paper with your address as well as enough postage to cover your returns. I will provide the return envelope. Please also write your user name and swap name in the back of your envelope.
International participants: I will cover your return postage.

• DUE DATE: April 07, 2024.

• As I receive your cards, I will post received by your name on the thread.

Sign me up for this swap, please. This is such an interesting idea. I never would have though to use those tags for art. I know my mom keeps them. I will have to ask her for some of them to use.
I’m glad the deadline for this swap isn’t until April. I really like this idea, but right now I’m sitting here staring at a pile of bread tags and have no idea what to do with them.IMG_2869.jpeg
So, after posting about not knowing what to do with the bread tags, I just finished my first card this morning. I usually just post them all when I’m finished, but I’m very happy with this one and wanted to share now.IMG_2870.jpeg
Our total of bread tags has gone from 1 to 4. I have no idea other than abstract as to what to do with them.
We have a small fridge in the garage, and currently all the frozen loves of bread have clips on them --and I have more bread tags to play with.
