I'm am the farthest thing from a crafty girl. I always say that my aspirations completely outweigh my skill level! LOL! Well, with the help of a VERY crafty girlfriend, I made a set of gift tags for our our goody bags for the first day of our ladies Bible study. We are studying "The Excellent Wife" by Martha Peace, so we made survival kits for each of the women in our group. I have to say, they turned out pretty cute (if I do say so myself) ;-)
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 pages of scrapbook paper that compliment each other
- stamp pad
- tape runner
First, make your "stencil" for the tags. I used an old cereal box and just measured out how big I wanted the base and the inside (which a made 1/8" smaller in order to see the layered effect). When you have the size you want, you're ready to trace. I did all the tracing on the opposite side of the paper so the lines won't show.
Carefully, cut the tags out.
Next, rub the edges of each tag along the stamp pad. This will give the tags a distressed appearance.
Use the tape runner to attache the smaller tag to the center of the larger one, achieving a layer look.
Center your tag label. Attach with the tape runner. Punch a hole in the top and tie the ribbon. And there you have it! Your gift tag is ready to attach to your gift or goody bag.
