Will go back and read everyone's responses, so if this has been mentioned, please forgive. Seems like your creations would fit perfectly in a small business envelope which measures 3 5/8 x 1/2. You can find them at any office supply store and on line they come in lots of colors, weights and textures to fancy them up a bit. Couldn't tell if you wanted to mount them onto a surface first, but this size envelope wouldn't allow for much.

Instead of figuring out the size of the whole sheet and hoping there was a groove where I needed it to be on my Scor Pal.

It's 3 1/2 X 7.

Maybe next time I'll try a 5 X 7.
Your tag card is totally awesome! Thanks for sharing your wonderful results.

Didn't edit this in time. The measurements for the small business card are: 3 5/8 x 6 1/2. Sorry about the goof.

I was enjoying the idea of a 3-5/8" x 1/2" envelope actually. Send a banner without a card - more efficient! : D

(I hope you don't mind my being silly. I make more typos than any 25 people here put together. And it's Friday.)

I did a 5X7 last week. The 5X7 EF was a big help in filling in all the extra real estate.

I also found a blog where the woman (Kath Stewart at Kath's Blog) does the most obvious thing, and it's beautiful. She just cuts the base around the tag (or glued two scored tags together):

I have to say that working in 5X7 males an A2 card seem small. And working on tags feels completely different than working on a card. I have bought a Bigz die in both #8 and #10 sizes, so I can cut out of chipboard if I want.

It's all an interesting exploration for me, and I needed to do something fresh.

Talk about typos! I meant "glues" not "glued" and "make" not "males".

Yeah, what bjeans said. It's Friday.

Sometimes I think there is an elf in my computer who choses what he wants me to say and automatically changes it from what I actually typed to something else. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it. Ok, I really do make a lot of typos, but I still like my elf story.

You really are a hoot! See, when I just checked what I had written it said you were a hot!!! Now, that very well may be true, but not what I intended to write.
