Hello again lovely Daisies! Kylie with you all again sharing another way for using up those scraps!! Today I am sharing one of my most favourite ways to use up off cuts and left over stickers and embellishments. Tags! I love making a bundle of these and having them on stand by ready to use.I can think of many ways to use these.There is the obvious of course- gift wrapping.But I also like to use them in my scrapbooking and pocket pages.I have actually made these to use in my planner next month and can’t wait to add them to my planner pages!
You will find these so easy to make and great for using up all those little odds and ends you have left over.Let me show you how I make mine.To begin with you will need a few supplies-
Scraps of paper.
Glue or double sided tape.
Foam tape or dots.
Left over embellishments or stickers.
String or ribbon.
Tag punch or die.
You don’t have to have a tag punch or die.They are very easy to free hand cut too by cutting a rectangle of any size, then removing the top two corners on a diagonal and finishing by punching a hole in the centre at the top. I myself have used a die though- It is a Sizzix Die by Tim Holtz. I am gong to use lots of different paper scraps and colour ways.
Begin by cutting your tags out….
I then add another layer of paper to the tag in co-ordinating theme.You will see here I have also distressed the edges a little.I did this just by carefully using my scissors.
I then add layers of embellishments to my tags.I have used foam tape to some of them to give a risen and multi dimensional appearance.I have finished by tying some string from my stash, but you could use twine,ribbon or even a string of pearls! I can’t wait to add these to my planner next month!
I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and it inspires you in using up all your scraps and making some tags too! Until next time,
