Scrap Tags

I decided that this blog could also be a "home" to some of my papercrafting efforts. All of the crafts kind of cross over with each other anyway.

This is a quick and useful way to deal with some of the smaller scraps of paper you might have leftover from other projects. I call them "scrap tags". But really, they are so cute...and very easy to make.

I used Tag Sale #2 die from Papertrey Ink. But, I didn't use the entire die. Instead, since it was just a scrap of paper, I let the bottom of the die hang off and once I had made the diecut, I just used my corner rounder to round off the bottom two edges.

Any cute stamp could be used. These are some Hampton Arts Christmas trees that were part of a set that my sister gave me. I used a green copic for coloring. I have a ton of green/yellow rhinestones left from my daughter's wedding....she thought these were more green than yellow, and we needed yellow as a menu selection designation on the placecards, so I ended up using a yellow copic marker to color clear rhinestones! (what a mother won't do!). Anyway, I am finding that these unused "green" ones actually work out nicely on these little tags. I just snip off 5 of them and leave them attached and affix the whole chain of them to the Christmas tree. The black on kraft tree uses some red rhinestones in graduated sizes.
