Scrappy Tags...Who Wants to Win Them?

Scrappy Tags


Creating things is therapeutic for me like it is for many creative people. After a week filled with less than happy news, I finally felt like making a little something. You may recall I had several birthdays this month and made a few cards. That always means scraps left over.  I decided to make some tags.  I’ve shared posts before about these being one of the best ways I know to use up scraps.

I also decided I wanted to give them away. Why? Just because. Consider this a “give-a-tute” or a “Tute-a-way” . Regardless, it makes me happy. Sometimes you just need to make things right? 

Black Yellow Grey Tags

This is a fast , easy, and stashbusty project. You will need:
  • Blank Tags. Pre-made or you can cut your own.
  • Coordinating Scraps
  • Adhesive
  • Embellishments ( I used rhinestones, washi tape, scrapbook stickers, and more scraps)
  • Twine or ribbon
Cover your tags with your preferred adhesive. Cover with scraps. I had pieces big enough to cover my tags completely and some pieces not quite big enough. No problem, combine the smaller pieces and trim accordingly.

Scrap Covered Tags 

Mix and match other pieces of your coordinating scraps in whatever combo makes you happy. Use the hole on the back side of your covered tag as a guide, punch through your covered side, add an eyelet.

Then just have fun embellishing. I punched some flowers from even more scraps and layered them. I used portions of stickers and strips of washi tape just wherever.

Finished off by threading coordinating baker’s twine through the eyelets.
