It was a beautiful weekend here and I created some tags, some may be an understatement, because I made 20 Xmas tags. I need at least 15 for my presents for my co-workers exchange gifts. There is one difference in making my tags than in the traditional style. I used NON-TRADITIONAL papers. Do you have that scrap pile of papers that keeps building and building? So do I and my tags ate into those 4 inch approximately square pieces of paper that don’t get used. I still have way too much scraps, but I still have time to use them before Christmas.
Without further ado, as they (who is they, anyway?) say: Here is my first set and how long I’ve had the paper. Upper Left is an old note card (3 years) , upper right card (5 years), bottom left card (only one year), middle bottom card, 6 years), and last but not least, paper is made from strips of papers glued onto a piece of copy paper and only 3 months old.
Now that you know I’ve gone scrap happy, I won’t make you go through each one, but the left two bottom tags are from a card stock type ring calendar and the dog is from a commercial Christ card I received.
Give it some thought and use those old scraps for making tags. This was so quick that I had fun just pulling scraps out and running through my Cuttlebug.
