Artful Random Act of Kindness Tags

The other day I, after watching one of the Creative Jump Start videos, I pulled out some tags, spray inks and stencils and played around a bit.  

Then I wondered what I would do with these little pieces of art and after thinking about it for a bit I decided to use them to make little RAK tags.  I continued to decorate them by adding some acrylic paint and when I liked how they looked I printed up some labels to stick to the back and added tassels.

 
Over the next few days, my plan is to give them out as I do some RAKs for people around town, and hopefully they will continue to make the rounds.


Wouldn't it be amazing if one found it's way back to me eventually?
