Over sized Tag Challenge

Here is my oversized tag for the Tag challenge over at Learn Love Cricut. It is a cricut group I am a member of over on Yahoo. Stephanie, here is her blog..( The Dragonfly Chronicles ) has a challenge going where you make a tag as large as your machine will make. You can decorate with any design as a long as it was made with your cricut. Here is what I made.

 My tag turned out to be 11.5 inches. I used the Sentimentals cart. 
Originally my Lady was at her typewriter. I cut that off and added a Cricut. The size may not be right on the Cricut. 
I had to make the Crciut Machine a bit bigger so I could fit the lettering and the Cricut head. This was the smallest lettering I had on hand. I cut the Cricut head from a cart box. I 
photographed  a couple cart boxes. I shrunk them as small as I could on my computer then printed them out.

This is my version of my trash can in my craft room. The wall stickers I added came in a sticker pack I found months ago in a thrift store. Orginally I had 5 small books of these stickers. Im down now to the last few. I used them to decorate my ATG and my baby wipes box ( there is a post of the decorated baby wipes box).

I had a hard time with this challenge because I have not gotten into Tag making yet. I couldn't figure out what to do with the Tag's once I made them. The large oversized Tag gave me  the opportunity to make it into a wall hanging for my craft room. I loved making this tag!! I know this wont be my last one. So now that I'm ok with the idea of  making Tags maybe I will make a few regular size Tags too. But first I plan to make 4 Tag's of the 4 seasons in the a super size. These I will display in my craft room.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
