Here are a few more tags that I created to add to end-of-the-year teacher gifts. In total, my kids distributed gifts to 12 teachers and I just didn’t have enough time to create so many cards. Tags, to me, are always the solution – easy to mass produce and just simpler.
I cut equal size strips of paper and used my Angle/Cut Corner Chomper to create the tags. I pulled out my favorite alpha set (unfortunately retired), Robust – uppercase (30-001) and stamping “SUMMER” along the side of the tag. To keep the letters all uniform, I lightly drew a line to where I wanted the top of each stamp aligned. To further assist with my alignment, I laid the tag on graph paper to keep all the letters straight. In addition, I partially stamped each letter leaving a little of each letter off the tag.
Each letter was stamped with a different pigment ink color. I tried to keep in happy using “summer” colors. Once I stamped each letter of “SUMMER”, I heat embossed the word with clear EP.
I then die cut a small banner using a die from A Pocket Full (51-053). I stamped “happy” with black dye ink from a sentiment found in the Sprinkles and Smiles (30-297) clear set. To continue the summer theme, I stamped a watermelon image pigment ink from the Summer Fun (30-107).
Once I completed all the tags, I attached each banner to the tag using my Tiny Attacher. Each tag was attached on a decorated colored gift bag using a small decorative clothespin.
I usually bake teacher’s gifts and this year was no exception. Each bag included 3 homemade honey buttermilk biscuits with a jar of either honey or preserves.
