Tim Holtz’s May challenge for 12 Tags of 2015 was perfect for my family reunion Memorial Day weekend. Tim has a step by step of how he created his tag .Mine is a little simpler than his.   I printed tiny pictures of my grandparents and made tags to share with cousins. I used Tim Holtz ephimera and hardware.  I clipped off a single flower from a lazer cut sheet of flowers and colored to match the moulding paste dragon fly.
