This little tip
is for those of us that need a little gift tag when giving a gift...
maybe with or without a card. Sometimes we have a need for one or the
other, and sometimes both.
The other day my Mom came for lunch, I had picked her up an Orchid and needed a little tag to go along with.
Then I thought, hmmmm, I should really show everyone how easy it is to make these! So here goes.....
gather your supplies, I have kept this very 'tool basic' for those of
us that may not have a lot of tools. A trimmer, any border punch, a
hole punch and a corner rounder are all that you will need.
Starting with a 2.5" piece of cardstock (you will notice I am using a scrap) punch along one end using your border punch.
Now trim it down to 4 inches tall.
a punched hole in the center of the non border punched edge and round
the corners at the top only. Now you have your basic tag piece done.
keep a stash of scraps ( I will tell you how I decided which ones to
keep and how I organize them one day, remind me... my memory is
suffering lately!) on hand, this way when the need arises I go straight
to this bin to pull out what suits me at the time.
Now decorate the the tag with whatever pattern paper you chose.
also have a little bin that I keep 'off cuts' of my die cuts in. For
example, if I am using the Cricut to cut out a shape, but maybe it is
too small or too large... I throw it in here.
when I have a quick project to make like this tag, or if I am looking
for that extra little embellishment to add to a project, I grab this
bin and start sifting.
The finished project! These sentiment rub-ons from ScrapMuch?
even make the job that much easier!
This has got me thinking that maybe I should pull out my christmas paper scraps and start making a bunch of Christmas tags in advance, you know... get it done way ahead of the busy time!
Thanks for checking in!
