Accessories: Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps-Altered Fairies; Creative Tags by paper reflections; jump rings; beads;Rock Candy stickles (on stars); ribbon; star punch
I love making tags to go on the outside of gift bags. I think a vintage looking tag looks great hanging down from the handles of a kraft bag. Paper Maniac has everything you need to get started, if you would like to try some tags. Tags are inexpensive to make, and lots of fun! I love the Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps line. They have so many cool vintage images that are easy to cut out and glue down on your altered projects. I started out covering my tag with some DP from Melissa Francis. I inked the edges with my distress inks, and then added my cut out images. I punched some little stars to go along with my moon, and added some stickles.
At the bottom of my tag, I punched some holes and then looped my jump rings through. I then added a crystal bead to each ring. You can tie some ribbon or twine at the top of your tag. I used hand dyed seam binding and crochet thread.
I hope I have inspired you to try making some tags! Thanks for stopping by!
