Paper Scraps - Tags

At my last paper crafting workshop, we made some gift-y items: a little holder that can hold a thank-you note with a gift card or a small (flat-ish) treat and a matchbook notepad that would make a great stocking stuffer or goodie-bag item.  Our "bonus" items were gift tags.

I used my Accucut Craft tag die cuts.  One is shaped like a shipping tag.  You can get them at most craft stores.  I dumped out my paper strip scraps on the table and everyone sorted through them to find some coordinating items.  The idea for this came from a Two Peas in a Bucket Member (username: Scrappy Jedi) from this "Use Your Scraps" post on her blog.  These were the tags that I came up with:

My friend, Debbie, let me have some of her new Prima flowers she got in bottles at a Michaels Craft Store on clearance.  I put silver sprinkles from Annabelle Stamps in the flowers.

I also used my smaller Accucut Craft tag:

I included ribbon on one of them.  I used this shape and technique to make a tag for a new mini album I'm working on.  Here's a look at that one:

I put a sticker at the top of this one and I heat embossed a stamped image with black embossing powder.  We probably used up 20 of my patterned paper strips.  I easily have enough to make hundreds of tags!

So, share your ideas for using tags with me!  I use tags for gifts and for mini albums... what else?


  1. These are so adorable! I love them! You could also make cute tags for teabags, instead of the boring ones that come with them! Then give them as a gift!

  2. Beautiful tags! I've only ever used tags when giving Christmas gifts, but I really need to attempt to make a scrapbook someday soon.

  3. Great tags.
    Doesn't it give you a great feeling to use up some of our scraps. Even though there is more then we can ever use up, teehee.


Thank-you for sharing your thoughts.
