A Tag Today!

Hello friends,
Today I'm sharing a tag - sometimes a tag just makes that little something extra special 
and I like the fact you can dress up luggage labels so quickly using just scraps.


1. Take an ordinary luggage label.
2. Cover it with strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape.
3. Cut and emboss Classic Scalloped Circles LG.
4. Ink edges with Distress Ink - Tea Dye
5. Cut and emboss Anemone Flower Topper (I used MME - Lost and Found papers)
6. Cut and emboss smallest Labels Twenty-Two, stamp sentiment.
7. Attach butterflies, gemstones and twine.
I've placed my around a new jar - isn't it lovely..wondering what to put inside.
Have a great day.

I have just got into making my own tags, thanks to you Christine. Like you say it can make a present that extra special. Also it is a way of using up scraps of card.

Love this tag Christine, great idea to cover with tissue tape. Are your butterflies a punch or a die? They are very cute.

Hi Christine,
well how is it going? I do hope you are having a good time.
A lovely tag today. I love doing tags, they are quick and yet can be so pretty and have lots of embellishments if you want. Plus lots of bling if you're in the mood.
all the best Linda
