Tags, tags, tags...

I thought I would share a few of the gift tags I have made this year.

I like to make tags that are like little cards. I put the "to" and "from" on the inside, which I generally line with white cardstock, and then I add some double-sided tape to the back side for adhering them to the package.

The die-cuts that you see on the tags above are all unbranded.

This group of tags features two that have strings attached and can be tied to the ribbon on a gift package. I've used red Nuvo drops to create the berries on the stamped holly. The little poinsettia is from Marianne Creatables, but all the rest of the die-cuts were made with unbranded dies.

I made multiples of some of these tags. I'm not sure how many I made altogether, but I would guess about 40 or so. I love making them as they are quick and use up some of those scraps of paper we are all plagued with.

We had a fun night tonight. We took my brother to a musical play as a belated birthday gift. The play was called Rosetta and Marie and the music was fantastic!! If you click on the link, you will see that the review says it is "musically magnificent," and it truly is! It is the first play I have attended where the entire audience jumped to its feet en masse to give a standing ovation at the end. My brother loved it, too, which was an added bonus. It is fun to give a gift that is enjoyed so much. Especially when we get to enjoy it with him! If you live in the Twin Cities area, I definitely recommend going.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Wow - your tags are amazing!!! I make my own tags, too, but mine are simply stamped with a tag stamp:) It serves the purpose, plus no one would appreciate the time put into such beautiful, "fancy" ones like yours.

Love them all - especially the ones with the snow scene and deer. This would make a great little giftie too. I am always on the look out for small gifts I can send my chemo buddy. TFS

Great tags. I love the fold over tags especially. Great idea to use double side tape on the back. You can even add that ahead of time and then peel off the paper when ready to attach. I usually do well with collections of tags at my craft shows.
