How to Make Paper Gift Tags




About: I love paper crafting and sharing all things paper crafting and sometimes digital scrapbooking. I have been working with paper projects for over 15 years.

Tags are an easy way to add to your gifts and make them feel special. Make a few tags ahead of time to have them on hand and ready to go when you are giving a gift.

Step 1: Sponge Tag With Color

Cut out a tag. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits, but you can make any shape. Sponge the tag with ink to give it some color.

Step 2: Emboss Coral Image.

Ink the coral image with VersaMark ink and stamp on to tag. Sprinkle with Embossing powder and heat set.

Step 3: Stamp Fish

Ink up fish or shell image with Sahara Sand ink and stamp on to white card stock. Cut out.

Step 4: Create Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment with Cajun Craze ink on to white card stock. Punch out with the Modern Label Punch. Place the sentiment to one end. Re-insert the punched shape and move it so that you can shorten the punched shape. Use a Post-It not to help you hold the sentiment piece. Place one of the Candy Dots into the Candy Dot Base. Set on the end of the sentiment piece.

Step 5: Assemble Tag

Affix the fish or shell image to the tag. Affix the sentiment with the Candy Dot Brad over the image. Tie your gift bag with a ribbon and wrap the tag around the gift. Give Gift and make more tags.
