Tags are such a fun project to be able to create and really add a special finishing touch to any gift. I’ve noticed though that a large majority of us crafters don’t always make very many tags… until Christmastime rolls around that is (and then our craft rooms become a card and tag making factory, LOL)!

The tags I’ve created here are perfect for adding to gifts, putting onto cards as little embellishments, using as ornaments, writing little notes on the backside… so many options! And I love the miniature size of these tags too; they are about  2 1/4” by 1 1/2“.

The tag die that I used today is from the Tag Time Two die set (also by Newton’s Nook); this tag set came out a while back but coordinates perfectly wit the new Tag Sampler stamp set! One of my favorite features of the die is that it die cuts the hole in the top of the tag for you at the same time the rest of the tag is cut… one pass of your machine and you have a fully die cut tag! How cool is that??

The images used on my tags are all from the Winston’s Honeybees stamp set; this set is SO cute! I love Winston holding the jar of honey… reminds me so much of my childhood where my mother would read stories of Winnie the Pooh to me. To color all my images I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, Broken China, Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs.

To see how I created these tags, be sure to watch the video below. If you enjoy, pleas give the video and “thumbs up” and subscribe to our YouTube channel! We post new video tutorials every week!


Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me! I’ll see you again next week!

xoxo, Nina-Marie :)
