We've thrown in tickets too...because they are easy to treat in much the same way. I think. Only smaller. Without holes. Potentially easier to attach. Or harder. Like a tag, they can be two things at once...an item in their own right, or a contribution to a whole, bigger thing.
So to make a small tag, do you just have to punch a hole in the ticket and thread something into it? And if you cut your own tags and don't punch a hole in the centre top...is that then a big ticket? I dunno. Seriously, these questions keep me awake. At my desk.
