Tag, You're It!

I am very new into the world of tag making, but when I received the library cards from Kraft Outlet I immediately thought that they would be great for making tags.

For my first tag, I started out by cutting it to the size I wanted and adding some decorative cuts to the corners. Then I inked it up to make it look a little old and worn and used the coffee stain stamp to add a little more character before I stamped the focal image on the tag.

I added twill tying tape, baker's twine, and topped it with a flower made from some fabulous text weight kraft paper.
(Have I mentioned Kraft Outlet's great prices?)

I also made two matching tags (again using the library cards as a base). I stamped the library cards with flowers and leaves in different inks and then cut an additional 2 stamped images to layer on top of the base for some depth. I topped the set of cut out images with a center piece made from some of Kraft Outlet's text weight kraft paper and then finished off the tag with some ribbon and a flattened bottle cap.

I used a stamp to stamp the sentiment on some 1" Round Brown Kraft Labels (and since they are already sticky on the back I just stuck it to the bottle cap).

You might have noticed that the set of tags is sporting a little orange. Stay tuned for tomorrow's Orange Blog Hop! It will start at the Fiskateer Blog and you will hop by some fabulous blogs (including mine) for lots of orange inspiration (and maybe even some giveaways!).

See you then!
