Scrapping My Stash | Gift Tags

I've decided that I need to stop buying supplies and actually start using the ones I have. That being said, I'm going to try to Scrap My Stash when I get the chance, and use only things  that I've been hoarding for no reason other than my style is simple and I rarely embellish, but continue buying diecuts and ephemera packs.

This week I'm sharing some tags I made using the gold glitter pocket tags from this old Studio Calico kit. Originally I had thought about using these tags in a tag mini album for the latest minibook class at Studio Calico (here).

I tried to keep them pretty simple, and wanted some of the gold glitter to still show. Since the tags have pockets (you can fit money or a gift card inside the pocket) I only decorated the bottom half of the tag. I stuck with pink and black embellishments because I have the most of those colours, and wanted to use them up a bit. Plus what girl doesn't love gold?

I started with at least one black label on each tag, and added the pink embellishments after. I tried to make them all a little different, while keeping a similar look to all of them.

These tags were so quick and easy to make. You could do something similar with tags that don't have pockets. You could include them in a mini album, or on a gift, or add them to a card. I think I'll make little cards to fit inside of them and add them to gift bags.

I hope that this post encourages you to use your supplies and not just keep them on a shelf where you'll never use them.
Have a great day!
