Gift Tags

Handmade gift tags add a special touch to any gift or occasion. It's quick and easy to create a gift tag using pocket cards. I've found that the 3x4 cards work perfect. I typically start with one or two cards . . .

 

. . . and a small assortment of embellishments (twine or ribbon, bling, stickers, washi tape, die cuts, letter stickers, sentiment, stamps & ink, etc).


A hole punch and some adhesive are all that's necessary to complete the gift tag.


The tags can then be tied or clipped onto a gift bag or wrapped package, adding a personalized touch to any gift.



I hope you're inspired to dig into your stash of pocket cards and create some gift tags! If you do, please let us know by leaving a comment below. You can also include a link to where we can see your creations or comment on our Facebook page with a photo of your gift tag.

Kaisercraft Scrap Yard Collection


Hello! Sandy here with a two page layout to inspire you! If you're looking for a nice rustic, masculine paper line then you'll want to check out the new Kaisercraft collection "Scrap Yard."  At first I didn't think I'd like it but once I put some of my photos from our trip to Washington D.C. on there and added some fun elements I ended up LOVING it! This collection made a perfect backdrop for a two page layout (12x12) of these images taken at the National Air and Space Museum.


For these layouts I used both 12x12 papers from the collection for the background and the 6x6 paper pad for the photo mats.  Some of the gears are from the Kaisercraft Scrap Yard Ephemera pack.  The flowers are by Petaloo from my stash and the metal gears, washers etc are from my husband's shop. A great place to find just the right embellishment.  I also added in some silver eyelets and black brads.

This two page layout will be on display at Scrappin' Goodtime later this week.

Happy Crafting!

More Pocket Page Scrapbooking

The Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More class is just two weeks away! Have you signed up yet? We're going to have a great time putting together pocket page layouts and using pocket cards for other creative projects. (Click HERE for all the class details and samples of the projects we'll be completing.)

The Project Life Strawberry Edition core kit contains over 600 cards that can be used on a variety of layouts. I used three cards (plus pink letter stickers from my stash) to create the 12x12 pocket page below.


I used pocket cards from that same core kit to scrap photos from the Fourth of July. For this layout, I layered some of the cards and included additional embellishments (stickers, punched shapes, washi tape) on them as well.


Be sure to check out all the Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More class information HERE and call the store to reserve your spot today!
