Tutorial-Tags and Embellishing Stickers

There are a few cute and colorful tags in this month's kit.  Here are a few templates and ideas to help you make your own...

For those of you who have die cut machines capable of cutting True Type Fonts, check out this free set of dingbats to create lots of different shaped tags...Scallops and tags dingbat

Bonus tip:
When is the last time you used your "shaped" hole punches?  For a unique looking tag I grabbed a star shaped hole punch rather than a round hole punch to create the star shaped hole in my tags (pictured above)!  You can use any tiny hole punch for these shapes, imagine how cute a mini heart, shamrock, Christmas tree, leaf, flower, pumpkin, or birthday cake would be in place of that boring old round hole.  So pull out those "ancient" shaped hole punches and put them to use!

Embellishing Stickers

The stickers in this month's kit made us think about the older stickers we have in our stashes.  Here are a few ideas to refresh some of your old stickers. 

Altering Stickers


  1. Wonderful tags and a great idea with the shaped hole!! Old is new once again!! :)

  2. I love the idea of using a punch to make the hole on the tags! Thanks for the links, too. It's amazing what shapes you can find in dingbat fonts. I've actually cut one that was a coffee cup! This blog has a wealth of information, and I should go back and bookmark some of these!

  3. Yay! They tags are back! It looks like you lost your comments, though. I lost mine on my last blog post, as well. I wonder what happened to the Blogger?
