Hi, it's Kim Dellow here with a great addition to your gift stationery. These are some great tags that you can make in bulk to have to hand whenever you need them and they can be used for lots of different occasions too.

Here Is What You Will Need:

  • Papermania Parisienne Blue Fabric Tape
  • Papermania Square Card Blanks 5" x 5" 50/Pkg - Recycled Kraft
  • MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangle Stax Dies
  • Stick It Die Cut Adhesive Sheets - Large Size, 8" x 12.25"
  • We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Hole Punch & Eyelet Setter
  • The BeadSmith - Vintaj Metal Awl
  • Prima Marketing Inc Wheat Jute Trim
  • Waffle Flower Crafts Dies With Love
  • Scissors

Let's Make Some Tags

Cut the tag shape by using one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies to cut from kraft card.

Next cut three strips of kraft card to fit the sentiment die for each tag and place each one on a section of Stick It! Adhesive sheet and trim off the excess.

Die cut each Kraft strip with the sentiment die but remove the die carefully so as not to remove the die-cut from its surrounding strip; the awl is useful to help with this. When you have cut all of the sentiments (remember it was three for each tag), remove the first die-cut sentiment, remove the backing sheet and place the sentiment on one of the other sentiments. Once this is stuck in place, remove the two layers and stick it on the third. That is one sentiment for one tag. Repeat for any other tags you are making.

Keeping the sentiment in place after cutting really helps when you try to layer up the sentiments.

Trim the end of the fabric tape into points and stick them onto the tag in the right-hand corner then trim off any excess; repeat for each tape.

Stick the sentiment from Step 3 onto the fabric tape and punch a hole in the top of the tag for some string to finish the tags.

The kraft with the Papermania Parisienne Blue fabric tape is a great combination but you could easily use any of the other fabric tapes or Washi Tapes at Blitsy.

Thanks for popping in.
