A Little Bit of Handmade

While I neither practice nor advocate making handmade cards for kids (unless it’s a relative or other mom that I know will notice and appreciate!), I do like to attach a handmade tag to gifts.

I picked up some cute glitter stickers at Michaels this week, on sale no less, and thought they’d make quick and easy tags.

DSC_0018 I cut my paper in half, to make two 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” sheets, then in half again for four 4-1/4”x5-1/2” sheets, then again for a total of eight pieces, 4-1/4”x 2-3/4”. It’s really economical, too..8 tags from one sheet of cardstock. I rounded and notched corners, stamped a greeting, and added a punched scallop circle.


Put the stickers on, punch a hole at the top, and you’re ready to tie one on! That cute Happy Birthday sentiment can be found in the Sweet Cake stamp set in the Occasions Minicatalog from Stampin’ Up!, if you need it.

This idea, of course, would work for your adult friends, as well. I try to keep a few tags on hand, for wine bottles, flowers, bread, or any other gift that doesn’t really require an entire card.

Stamp a little, create a litte, but most of all, I hope you find time for a little fun today!


  1. Love the top tags--how perfect for a couple little "fence sitters" I know. And the pink and purple tags--darling! What edge punch (I presume that's what you used) did you use for the heart/pinking edge? Cute. And the little starts and hearts for the reinforcements is brilliant.

    1. Thanks! It's a Stampin' Up! border punch...of course! You didn't think I could do a project with no SU! stuff, didya?
