Hello!!! Long time...I know sorry. Life got crazy with medical issues of my daughter in law and we had the birth of a new granddaughter. Who, by the way, is totally a doll! I get lots of baby-grandma time with her and just love all the cuddling.
So slowly, I am getting back into my craft room and I started with making some Christmas gifts. Sorry can't post those! heehee Santa wouldn't approve but what I can post are the lovely tags I was able to make from my scraps. First I made a trip to the Dollar Tree to get some file folders. These can turn out at least 80 tags when cut up. You get 10 folders in a pack. Take 1 folder, cut off the tabs (save these to make grommets) and cut the folder in half. Then cut each piece into 2 3/4 x 6 1/2 tags. These are large so you will get 4 from each half folder. Totally 80 if you do them all this size. I love this size tag and it is the one I use the most. Another great medium size is 2 3/4 x 5 1/2 and a smaller size of 2 3/4 x 4. You should be able to get 10 tags from each half if you use these sizes and that would be a whopping 100 tags from just one $1 pack!!! Now that's a deal!
The 5 tags on the bottom right are the 6 1/2" long ones. Top and middle are the 5 1/2" ones and the 4 on the bottom left are the 4" long ones.
The grommets on all of these I made by cutting out 3/4" circles and punching a hole in the middle and they turn out nearly perfect. I'm a strong believer that your tags need the extra support for the ribbon, jute, yarn or whatever you choose to use.
In the next few days I hope to share some scene cards that I'm C.A.S.E.ing from a you tube video I saw. I'm trying to figure out all the dimensions before I post and I will put up the link to the video then too. Sooooo stay tune and til then................................
