I am a genius! Well, that's what I thought when I looked over my first set that I made. I still cease to amaze myself, but enough of self praise, and yes I broke my arm petting myself on the back. Haha!
The ones in the second pic are the first ones I made from printed images that I colored with markers and then cut out. The last pic are of ones I haven't yet added ribbon to.
Anywho, these little cuties can be use for any occasion where you can add a little note on the inside and are very easy to make.
First print or cut images that you want to use. You can also draw your own if you'd like. I used images I have saved in a pc program. It's better to have these on card stock, so if you cut out images from a magazine or something, you would need to glue them to card stock.
My tut is going to be done using Marilyn Monroe images.
You can either use blank index cards, which I am using here. Or you can use scrapbook paper, which is what I used on the others shown. If using scrapbook paper or any other type of sturdy paper like card stock or construction paper, I cut mine 4 1/2" X 3 1/4" and folded them in half. You can choose to make yours bigger or smaller.
Using index cards, fold in half width wise and you can write something or not. Your choice. I used a sharpie for these, but you can use a pen, colored pencil, markers, gel pens whatever you can think of.
After cutting out image you plan to use, center a pop dot on the back.
These can be found in craft stores in the scrapbook section and they come with adhesive on both sides.
Peel off other side of pop dot and place on tag. Punch hole in top left corner, or if you are using a different angle, put hole on either side of folded edge of tag.
Cut your ribbon or string in 6 or 7 inch lengths. I used 6".
Put ribbon through hole and tie in a knot and you're done!
The possibilities are endless with these tags. You can use any kind of image you like (even with a pic of a friend, family member or pet or you can use stamps) with any type of paper, even gift wrap, which I plan to try next. Embellishments can be used as well as other mediums and materials.
Have fun with these, I DID!
