Here are our challenges for the day:

I don't spend a lot of time making tags because they only end up thrown away with the wrapping paper and ribbon!  But I do think they're fun to make and they make your package look extra special! So I've got a few different ones, ranging from fast & easy to a little more elaborate.  So let's get started! 

I love peel & stick tags, so I took a sheet of 1x3" address labels, cut a couple rows apart and went to work:

These just used images from Holiday Blitz and Punch Pals--easy!

DSCF2569 I used the Soft Holly wheel and marker and again, Punch Pals on this set.

Here's a hint:  you can use your SU gel pen to write your color on your ink cartridges!  Makes them much easier to find in your case!

 

 

DSCF2572 I brayered some Ballet Blue ink on to these labels, and then wheeled the snowflakes over top. 

My next set just used scraps of DP I had left over from other projects:

I cut some 2x 2.75" strips of cheapie Walmart cardstock for my tags, and began covering them with strips of the DP.  I cut off the top corners to make the tag shape; I rounded some bottom corners and used a border punch, just played around and had some fun!  I punched holes, but haven't added string yet (too lazy, too late!)

And finally, I found these tags at a stationery store:

And I brayered them with some More Mustard and Creamy Caramel ink, then stamped some vintage images from Crafty Secrets:

Of course, these took the most time, but they are the prettiest!   Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll be inspired to make some cool tags of your own!

  14. Hi, back again...had to delete my last comment..it didn't even make any sense!!! I'm feeling a little scattered this morning...sorry
    I LOVE your tags Leanne! They are so cute! I'm glad you showed us about using address labels too...those are perfect for packages that have to be mailed!(I'm thinking: there's no chance of them getting pulled off when unpacking from the millions of cushioning devices I put in there...LOL) And it also reminded me that I need to make some Return Labels for my Christmas cards...I almost forgot...so thanks for the reminder:)
