handmade tags


If you’re anything like me, you save everything. Especially that “free chipboard” that comes with your clothes. And the nicer brands have sturdy, heavy weight tags on their items.

To make your own HANDMADE BY… tags out of recycled clothing tags you will need:
Tags from clothes
A glue stick or tape runner
Twine or ribbon
Journal spots
Paper piercer tool
X-Acto knife
Emery board or sandpaper


Adhere the paper to both sides of the tag with your adhesive. Trim the edges with an X-Acto knife then file/sand down with the emery board or sandpaper for a smooth edge.

Pierce the paper where the original tag’s hole was. Run ribbon or twine through the hole. Tie a bow or knot.


Place the journal spot and write your message, in this case, it is “HANDMADE BY….”

You can personalize it by adding more embellishments. I used ribbon, a dress form stamp from Stampin Up and some pearls from Prima.


When I saw the dress form sheet from Cosmo Cricket’s Material Girl line, I knew I was going to use this paper slowly so that I could get the most out of it. I couldn’t possibly have used it in smaller pieces. :)

Make some tags with the scraps you have left from the February kit before that March kit hits your doorstep! Show us what you make!! Upload your creations to the Scrapbook Circle Gallery!

Thanks for stopping by today!
