Gather your supplies. I was inspired to make these when I found the wooden tags at a big box store. I knew I wanted to take a mixed media approach.
Trim some cut aparts from the Graphic 45 paper for embellishing. Cut a template for the tag. I made mine slightly smaller as I wanted to preserve the dotted detail on the tag's edge.
Add an eyelet to each tag. I used a variety of colors. These happen to be vintage ones from a garage sale.
Add ribbon and start to audition charm arrangements. Adhere with glue of choice, I tried out Zip Dry and things went well.
This step really pulls things together. Ink up the edges of the tag. This is my go to color for sure.
Here I added another layer of media and got some stickels glitter glue in the mix.
Use your tags to give each of your gifts a lovely personal touch. The backs of each of these are still natural wood, providing the perfect place to add a "to" and "from." Cheers!
