Trends can be born so silently and subtly that we seldom notice them.
And when you survey hundreds of websites, you often see patterns that you would otherwise miss. One such pattern is the frequent use of tags and ribbons.
These small flourishes have become increasingly popular. This article addresses the two elements because they are used together so frequently.

The websites that use these elements are truly outstanding in quality. Putting together this gorgeous showcase turned out to be remarkably easy. Few trends are like this: one usually has to wade through many poor examples to find the tasty ones.
