Miniature Tag DIY

If you're like me you've probably bought quite a few tags for gifts and homemade creations. There are so many and they are so beautiful too. Some are painted or dip dyed, some stamped or letter pressed, and they come in lots of different colors and sizes. Tags can be used for so much more than just indicating who a package is from though. I use them on boxes of cookies, or tied around loaves of fresh baked bread when gifting the goodies. I also use them around the necks of bottles and jars to attractively label the contents.

When I made homemade vanilla extract recently, the bottles I used were so slender that all the tags I owned were too overwhelming to attach to the thin glass neck. So I decided to make my own tiny tags. And they are super easy! I don't think I'll need to buy tags again, I'll just make my own.

Here's what you need:
Kraft paper card stock
Washi Tape (optional)

Here's what you do:
1. First cut the craft paper into 1 inch wide x 1 1/2 inch tall rectangles using your craft knife and ruler.
2. On one end snip the two corners off.
3. Punch a hole on the same end you removed the corners, evenly spacing the hole.
4. Cut a 5 inch long length of twine and thread it through the hole and tie the end.

Done! EASY!

You can decorate the end with a 1 inch piece of washi tape for a little extra color like in the picture at the top of the post.

What sorts of things are you planning to use your homemade tags for?
