Stickeroos and gift tags

I recently succumbed and bought Stampin' Up's Scalloped Gift Tag punch.

The other day, with only an hour spare to play, I was flicking through my Penny Black Christmas Stickeroos and realised I had loads of half used sheets. Some with small images and others with larger images that were unlikely to ever be used. Bingo - an idea!


I used:

- white card strips, 2" wide x 4" long

- with some of the strips I punched the tag shape first and then added some small stickers - there's one tag like that in each of the above photos - and then rounded off the bottom corners

- and the other strips I just covered the whole front with all or part of a Stickeroo and trimmed away any excess with a sharp pair of scissors (do this from the back, and preferably with non-stick scissors), before punching the tag shapes and rounding the bottom corners

- last thing, just some matching metallic cord threaded thorough the top of the tags

And as a result, a total of 20 Christmas tags, made in under an hour :)

Even if you don't have a tag shaped punch, these could have been made with just the top corners cut across and then a hole pinched for the cord, or ribbon of course. In fact, some of these might find their way onto cards - in which case I'd probably change the cord for some pretty ribbon.

  9. This is a "why didn't I think of that" idea. I have tons of stickers too that are just stuck in a drawer. Duh! Your tags are just beautiful and will be appreciated when wrapping gifts.

  10. These are beautiful Di and a great way to use up some of those smaller stickers. You can also use the top edge of the smaller Spellbinder dies to make tags, buy cutting out a small rectangle and then positioning the top only under the die, you can get lots of nice shaped tags that way.

  23. Oh, great minds and sisters-from-another-mother, Di! I just pulled all my remaining Stickeroos out yesterday to turn them into cards and tags!! You've arranged yours so perfectly! I will definitely be copying these for my gifts, but I won't post them. This way, I won't have to turn them this way and that way, I can just follow your lead!! Thank you!! I hope you're having a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell
