Tag Creations

Tags are one of my favorite things to make! They are a fun way to use up scraps of paper, stickers, stamped images, ribbon, etc. Here are 3 tags that I recently made:

I created this tag to attach to a wedding gift for a friend's daughter that recently got married:

The hugging couple image came from an old book, "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstine, that I rescued from the trash. I punched the image out using a 1 7/8" circle punch, and then matted the images on slightly larger circles that I cut from black cardstock and pink/white polka-dot cardstock. I attached the tag to a lime green gift bag, which matched the lime green ribbon on the tag.

I made the next tag to attach to a gift for my friend, Tracy S., using images that I cut out of "recycled", store-bought cards and scraps of lace and ribbon:

Next is a tag that I created as a proto-type. My friend, Tracy, needed personalized tags to attach to gift bags she was preparing for her daughter's soccer team tournament, so here's the design that I came up with for her:

The final tags that I ended up making for her used a blue accent at the top, rather than a red one, since her daughter's soccer team uniform color is blue. (Sorry, but I didn't take a picture of the final tags!) The soccer ball is an image that I found online and resized so that I could use my 1 1/2" circle punch to punch them out. I attached the soccer balls to the tags with 3-D dots.

Wishing you a fantastic day!


  1. Adorable! Love the wedding cute!

  2. Oh my gosh--love these tags! Especially the first one. I've been on a recycle/reuse kick lately too-and try to see a way to use any trash in my crafts! I've been collecting trash--but haven't had the time to create! Anyway--love seeing your work!
