'FISH' Tag

I went totally opposite with what the word FISH conjured up in my mind. Growing up I loved to play Go Fish with my sister and have now played it with my grandchildren so naturally that is what popped into my mind.


The background is burlap...kinda like fish net!
The cardboard tag was colored with distress ink.
I drew, then cut out the silhouette of children playing cards.
I scanned the cards onto my computer and made the box.
I drew the words Go Fish with markers. cut out and added them with pop dots.
The fishing pole is cardboard with a jute string attached to the glittered gold FISH.
I added the buttons just because I love buttons.
Anybody want to play a game of Go Fish?

  1. You win the gold ribbon for this - I do think it is fun, original and very well done!! I guess this is what is meant by thinking outside of the box. I do love this tag!!

  3. Sandy...I copied most of it from a silhouette from Graphics Image. Turned a boy into a girl and added cards. PS. Two of my girls graduated from Brevard.
