9 Cute DIY Gift Tags
Tag Set #1
My favorite piece of paper was "Romance Six", so I used that paper to cut six tags, three large (6 1/4 × 3 1/8) and three smaller (2 × 4). I then adhered the tag cut-outs to kraft tags for more stability. Then the fun part! I punched out several pieces from the awesome "Ephemera" sheet included with the Authentique paper set and adhered them. Then I continued to collage items on the tags until I was pleased.
I used pearls, enamel dots, buttons, wooden hearts, rick rack, and resin and paper roses. The three large tags are topped with pink and white baker's twine. BUT - you could use any items in your collection that delight you - that is the beauty of collage!
Tag Set #2
When I saw the paper with the beautiful journal cards, "Romance Eight", I loved it, and I knew I had to use those too! These tags measure 4" x 5 3/4". I chose the pink weathered board paper from "Romance Three" and trimmed that paper to fit the tags as a background to show off the journal cards. I cut those apart and then chose my favorites.
I adhered the pink background paper and then a journal card to each tag. Then I pulled out five champagne glitter hearts from the Crate Paper ephemera set included in the kit. I adhered those in the corner of each tag for a touch of sparkle! I also added enamel dots, lace, and paper roses. These tags are each topped with pink lace. Again, the fun of these is adding pieces you love!
Tip: If this is helpful, paper-to-paper applications are best with a dry adhesive, such as an adhesive runner. When I am adhering embellishments such as buttons and pearls I use a wet adhesive. My favorite is Aleene's Tacky Glue, which comes in white, which dries clear, and also in clear.
