April 22 - Mini Greeting Tabs


I've been creating like a mad fiend, trying to get enough stuff created to populate a craft show booth for a show I signed up for in mid-June. So I've been creating a ton and not posting a ton (so sorry!) so I'm working to get caught up today! In between cleaning, laundry, nose-wiping (Natalies, not mine), and getting ready for calling hours tonight for Chad's uncle.

Oh, how I love the tag punch. This is a great project to use those scraps you love but just can't make yourself throw away because you love the paper too much.

Mini Greeting Tabs

  • 6 different scraps of patterned paper (your choice!)
  • Large Tag Punch (SU!)
  • "Short & Sweet" stamp set (SU!)
  • Chocolate Chip ink (SU!)
  • Felt flowers (SU!)
  • Mini Brads (SU!)
  • Eyelets and Crop-A-Dile (SU!)
  • Gold elastic cord (SU!)

1- Punch out your shapes.
2- Stamp your greetings on them at an angle and so the trailing lines on the ends of the words go off the tag.
3- With your Crop-a-dile punch holes in the tops of each tag. Attach your eyelets using the same tool.
4- Attach your small felt flowers with the mini brads.
5- "fold" the cording in half, then put the looped end in through the FRONT of the eyelet on the tag. Pull the ends back through the loop you just put through and pull.
