DIY Scrapbook Tag Embellishments!

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was nice enough out here that we got out and took the girls for a little bike ride to the park. They made birdhouses at the local Home Depot kid's craft event and my 9 year old went to a Petland birthday party where she held a tarantula... yikes! My favourite thing was making these cute DIY tags :) I've been watching lots of YouTube videos on making your own scrapbook embellishments lately and thought I'd give it a try.

I pulled out a sheet of BoBunny Sweet Life paper from a 6x6" paper pad and cut it into 6 tags, each measuring 2x3". I rounded the tops of the corners with my We R Memory Keepers corner punch and sponged Victorian Velvet Distress Ink on the edge. I used a circle punch to punch out a circle of coordinating paper and, after gluing it to the top of my tag, hole punched through both layers so that it looked like I had reinforced the tag hole. I have lots of little scraps of paper, especially longer border strips that I was able to cut into banners and layer on my tags.

My circle punches worked to punch little pieces of leftover papers from my 6x6" pads and, together with some fun rectangles cut from an older Simple Stories pad, as well as some Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers, I was able to create some pretty tags and use up supplies at the same time!

I tied some embroidery floss through my tag and added some homemade 'enamel dots' that I made with a sparkly silver gluestick and my hot glue gun. The Ranger craft sheet is excellent for making these on!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope this gives you some ideas to use your scrapbook supplies in a creative way :) Have an awesome crafty week!
