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!
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!
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!
