Welcome back to another Workshop Wednesday! I hope you’re getting lots of good ideas to get ahead of the holidays. If you’re following the hop, thanks for coming over from Mine For The Making!
This week’s project: Gift Tags.
You shop for, make , and wrap gifts. Then if you’re like me, you forget or run out of time for the tags. I have been known to be making a last minute tag on Christmas morning. Not this year!
This week I’ll show you how to be ready AND bust some scrap stash. If you work with scrapbook paper for any reason, you’ve likely got scraps.
Other options: tags from the office supply store , cut your own with a die cutter, or using a template.
Peel your sticky tags off of the backing paper and then attch to the underside of your paper. Trim around your tags. Cover your entire tag and then grab some more scraps and tear, glue, trim ….whatever you feel like. A great way to use smaller pieces up.
There’s no rhyme or reason to these, just kind of wing it. I had some self adhesive scrapbook borders from other projects. Threw some of those on too.
Got buttons? The stockings and lights on a couple of the tags are buttons from my button stash. Basically if it’s small enough to fit on a tag…
Here’s one important thing to remember. I wait until I know I’m completely done adding papers, tape etc. to my tags to punch holes. That way you punch through all the layers you’ve used cleanly and only one time.

These are soooo pretty Carol!! I think my favorite is the rick rack one. :)
Love these! I, too, find myself making last minute gift tags. :) But they never look like this!
I found your blog and I liked it very much!! Nice work!! I follow you!! Best regards from Greece!!
Brilliant idea, Carol, and SO pretty!! I really should do this. I hate the thought of people throwing them away though! It would break my heart! :)
Carol, these are really cute tags and a great way to use scraps. I think I will be breaking out my scraps for my gift tags this year.
