Tuesday’s Tag #3

Hi everyone!

Welcome to “Tuesday’s Tag”!  These posts feature how to create 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 🙂  I alternate Tuesday’s Tip,  Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tag just to change things up a bit.

Today’s tag: “Love You”


You will need: card stock {Crumb Cake, Real Red}, patterned paper, paper trimmer or cutting tools of choice, scoring board, bone folder, die cutting machine, Bear Hugs Stamp Set/Dies, ink {Soft Suede, Early Espresso}, corner rounder, adhesive, Stamp-a-ma-jig or other stamp positioner, sponge/sponging tool, hole punch, 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 any card stock/stamp set/inks/dies 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 a piece of Crumb Cake card stock to 2 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″ and crease with the bone folder. Round the bottom front and back corners.
  3. Cut a piece of Real Red card stock to 2 1/8″ x 4 1/8″. Round the bottom front and back corners.
  4. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 2″ x 4″. Round the bottom front and back corners.
  5. Attach the patterned paper to the card stock piece leaving equal borders on all four sides.
  6. Stamp large bear image on Crumb Cake card stock with Soft Suede ink. Heat emboss if desired. Cut out with die. Use the stamp positioner to stamp the back side of the cut out bear as well. Please note: this is so the stamping is also seen when his arms are holding the heart. Sponge around the front/back edges of the bear.
  7. Stamp “love you” on Real Red card stock with Early Espresso ink. Heat emboss if desired. Cut out with die.
  8. Very gently use the bone folder to curl his arms inwards.


9.  Adhere the bear to the tag closer to the top making sure there is enough space left for punching the hole. Add foam dots to the back of the heart and attach to the bear. Adhere his paws to the heart {glue dots work well for this}.

10. Knot a length of ribbon around the bottom of the layered card stock. Then attach to the tag. Punch a hole at the top through both layers and add twine/ribbon for hanging. Add a few pearls/rhinestones. I glued 2 foil wrapped chocolate hearts on the inside as an added surprise to the personalized message 🙂
