Tuesday’s Tag #5

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: “For You” shaker

You will need: card stock, patterned paper, vellum, jar die, sentiment stamp, ink, paper trimmer or cutting tools of choice, adhesive + foam adhesive, confetti or other shaker bits, small 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 noteany jar die can be used. I am just showing you the way I created this tag. The jar can also be cut out by hand if a die is not available. The jar die I used is from amazon.ca ~ Sizzix 16-Pack Framelits Stamps Jar Scrapbooking Die Cut.

  1. Please note: you may click on the link underneath the picture below for a PDF of these instructions.
  2. Cut 2 pieces of card stock to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ {one is for the front, the other for the backing}.
  3. Cut a piece of patterned paper and vellum each to 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″.
  4. Adhere the patterned paper to the top card stock piece leaving equal borders on all four sides.
  5. Place the jar die closer to the bottom of the layered patterned paper. Run through the die cutting machine.
  6. Adhere the vellum behind the opening
  7. Die cut the jar lid from patterned paper or card stock. Wrap twine around the jar lid and attach.
  8. Put pieces of foam adhesive around the jar making sure there are no gaps ~ you don’t want anything to fall out! Add the little shaker bits. ∗Please note: I punched small circles thinking they might look like gumballs but once the tag was finished, I realized that they should have been a bit bigger. I also added some tiny star/heart confetti for some fun. 🙂


9.  Peel the backing off the foam adhesive. Line up the edges of the second card stock {the backing} piece and press down to seal.

10.  Punch a hole for the hanger and embellish as desired.
