Tag Tutorial & Giveaway--FOR YOU!

According to RANDOM.ORG
The GIVEAWAY WINNER IS:
Moonglitz
Please send me an email with your address


Many of you create some great cookie gifts for others! 
Why not add a cute little tag to go with it?

Here's what I do...
I have one of these die-cut machines
I bought mine at JoAnn's for about $30 (maybe $40)
(use a coupon!)

You can buy "die cuts" in many shapes
but I use the TAG die-cut set to cut out...

TAGS!
You can cut 3 sizes (I most often use the large one)

I always use cardstock for tags
P.S. I've seen tags for sale at Hobby Lobby too!

YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE A DIE CUT MACHINE!
You can cut out a rectangle (any size) and punch a hole in it!



I also have a lot of rubber stamps.
All of these were purchased at Michaels Craft Store.
Did you know that at Michaels they have a small $1 section (wire baskets)
 and they have a bazillion stamps just like this!

 Birthday-ish
 Thank You-ish
 Wedding/Baby
Misc.


Then I just add a quick stamp on the tag.
You can use ANY color ink pad your heart desires!



Add the tag to your cookie package

These were a different type of tag--actually a TOPPER.




And that's it!
You can add a little bit of personalization to your already fabulous cookie creation!


NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY

If you want to win this little BRAND NEW set to get you started,

just leave a comment on this thread-that's it!
Easy peasy!
This giveaway ends on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Hi Jackie,

I love how you did these tags! I think even I could do this too, lol! Great idea, and it really "makes" the package! Thanks for the ideas.

I really need to get in the habit of making my own cookie tabs! I'm always hunting for the perfect pre-made tags. It's very limiting! Cute post. - Kristina

I got my prize package today. Girl, even your mailing label & packing material is cute. Can't wait to try my stamps. I'm going to try them on cookies with Amerigel color since they are clean and new. Can't wait. Hey, if you ever get a biz Facebook page give me a shout and I will be glad to send loads of "likes" your way. You should get your talents on the social map for sure.
