DDRS082_Stamps_Tags

Today we'd like to share some ideas using the Tags stamp set! There's 8 different tag sizes in this set, along with a To and From if you'd like to use them for gift tags. But there are SO many ways to use these tags, let's take a look...

They can be used on scrapbook pages:

We're so excited to share some projects created by Guest Artist Connie Mercer!

From Connie: On this one I stamp two large tags out in brown ink and then adhered them together at both ends.  I folded the tags in half and made a closure for the tag {which I will use as a journal space} with two buttons and some twine.  The layout shows in closed and I also sent a picture of it opened.

They can be used on cards and for gift tags:

 From Connie: My idea on this was to make something that would be useful and a cool gift ( especially around the Holidays).  I made a card using the Dear Santa montage, word strip, and the tag stamp set.  Inside the card I used a large safety pin, as the holder of the small gift tags, and attached them to it.  This is a great teacher's gift!

They can be used for mail art:

They can be used as larger gift tags or decorations:

So... there's just a few different ideas! Here's some other things I'd like to share about the Tags stamp set:

* Each circle tag fits a circle punch, so you don't need to cut around it. The small tag fits a 1" circle punch, the medium tag fits a 1 1/2" circle punch and the larger tag fits a 1 5/8" circle punch. All of these punches that are pictured here are by EK Success and they are what I used to punch out these circles.

* The inside circles on the shipping tags also fit smaller circle hand punches, so you can easily make them into 'real' tags. The small shipping tag fits a 1/8" punch, a 1/4" punch fits the middle shipping tag and a 3/8" punch fits the largest shipping tag. If you change the punches and use larger ones, you can create circles like in the mail art sample above.

I hope this gives you some ideas on what we had in mind for these Tags stamps! They really are so versatile, they're a real staple stamp set to have in your collection :)
