Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl here today, and I have something completely different to share with you.
I have created some gift tags using the brand new You Go Girl Collection, and they were really quick and easy to make. I doubt I’ll ever buy commercial gift tags again.
I started out with an A4 sheet of white cardstock, and cut it at 3″ (7.6cm) intervals, going down the sheet. Or, if you are using scraps, the size I used is 3″ x 5 3/4″ (7.6cm x 14.6cm) pieces, then scored in half on the long side. *If you want to be more frugal, reduce the height of the tags to get three from each sheet instead of two. I had about 2 1/4″ (5.7cm) left over, and can use that for stamping greetings etc for cards.
Using a hole punch, I punched a hole on the top left of the front of the tags, but you could easily do this only on the inside.
For both tags, I stamped the “Congrats!” before I added anything else to ensure I knew where to place my toppings. You can, of course, use any greeting you like. This stamp came from the Couture Creations Congratulations Stamp Set.
For this first tag, I used the You Go Girl Ephemera, lifting it up with the new Couture Creations Adhesive Foam Rectangles. Once the ephemera was adhered down, I added some glitter glue here and there, as well as Madagascar Liquid Drops 3D Pearls.
For my next tag, I stamped two identical flowers from the You Go Girl Collection, and cut them out using the matching dies. I also cut out the leaves shown here.
I glued the leaves down first, then added the flowers, again using the Adhesive Foam Rectangles to give them height. Last of all I added some glitter glue to the centres.
