Tuesday’s Tag #1

Hi everyone!

Now that we are into a new year, I thought I would change things up a bit for you. Instead of each Tuesday being either “Technique Tuesday” or “Tuesday’s Tip”, one of these will be every other week with a “Tuesday’s Tag” post in between. There will be different styles of tags that can be used for the usual purpose ~ gifts. But tags can also be added to scrapbook layouts, cards, albums and journals. I hope that you will join me and enjoy creating some tags 🙂

Today’s tag: Birthday Cupcake


You will need: card stock {a light color for stamping and a darker color for matting}, paper trimmer or cutting tools of choice, SU Ornate Tag Topper/ Tree Builder Punch, stamps, ink, adhesive, liquid pearls/rhinestones/pearls, ribbon/twine. *Optional: powder tool, clear embossing powder, heat tool {you don’t have to heat emboss the images if you don’t want to}. Please note: do not feel that it is neccesary to use the SU tag punch/stamp set/tree builder punch used in this example. Tags/cupcakes can be cut with punches, dies, a Cricut or by hand. And any birthday stamp set can be used. I am just showing you the way I created this tag.

  1. Please note: you may click on the link underneath the picture below for a PDF of these instructions.
  2. Cut the white card stock to 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″.
  3. Cut the colored card stock to 2″ x 4 5/8″.
  4. Punch both pieces of card stock with tag punch. *Turn the punch over to be sure the smaller white piece is centered in the punch.
  5. Stamp sentiments/heat emboss with clear embossing powder on the white card stock.
  6. Stamp cupcake base/cupcake top/candle on scraps of card stock and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  7. Punch or cut out.
  8. Assemble cupcake on tag. I adhered the cupcake base right to the tag and used pop dots for the cupcake top/candle for a bit of added dimension.
  9. Apply adhesive to the back of the stamped tag and attach it to the colored tag leaving an equal border of space all the way around. Please note: “to/from” may be stamped on the back of the tag.
  10. Thread ribbon/twine through the hole for the hanger.
  11. Add “sprinkles” with liquid pearls. Let dry thoroughly.
  12. The tag is now ready to be attached to a birthday gift bag or package 🙂
