Quick Tags for Gifts - DIY in Minutes

Our Small Art Big Passion is all about the love of making cards, tags atc's and anything in between. From Stamps, flowers, paper, embellishments and pretty things in between! These yummy goodies will enhance any of the kits or stand alone .

This month's kit features Sherry Baldy's "My Besties" 6x6 paper pad called "Pink Pink Pink".   As you can see, one of the sheets has her signature "My Besties " darlings on it - so that's the image I decided to highlight.  It's very sweet.  ( You can find more "My Besties " paper by Sherry Baldy right here in the Unicorn shop.)

The Small Art Big Passion kit also included a fascinating chipboard plaque that's sized 6inx7in - a pretty decent size  to hang in a bedroom wall, in a nook, on a door - pop a name on it and you've got a great door plaque. 

This month our kit includes : 6x6 Sherri Baldy paper pad, 2 watercolor tags, laser Cut plaque, Petitie Alphas, 5 Brads, Resin Clocks x 4, 1 yard Seam Binding, Prima Chalk Ink, Laser cut keys, Butterfly metal die Burlap flowers by Petaloo.

This is the first tag I made.  They are simple mini gift tags meant to be tied to boxed and gift bags.  Totally not time intensive , week long projects.   You can write little notes on the back.  Just perfect. 

I used the chipboard plaque piece that came in the Small Arts Big Passion Kit as my template for the tags. 

Ink the edges of everything.

Ink the ribbon that came in the kit.  I want a nice soft vintage feel to the seam binding.  Just use the ink that is already on your pad.  No need to dip and re-ink.  You may over ink the ribbon if you dip again. 

I added some Liquid Pearls to the roses on the patterned papers.   True enough that delicate Petal Pink Liquid Pearls will not show up on an internet photo, but it makes a difference when I am holding the tag.  It's there and it's a nice finishing touch. 

Tag two is equally simple.  Nothing much to them, but then again does everything need to be difficult, time consuming and  involve intensive technique?  Nope, sometimes you simply need to get the tag done, placed on the gift, get yourself dressed and make it to the party on TIME for once instead of fiddling with details.  OK - I'm clearly talking about myself and not you.  

Top with a sweet little gemstone brad and some mini alpha stickers.    Doesn't get much easier. 

Thanks for stopping.  You can find more "My Besties" papers right here in the Unicorn Shop.
