Easy Scrap Tags...

Here is my wonderful worktable once again. This time I am making some fun and super easy tags out of scraps.
See if you recognize some of the scraps I have used:
Green Hardanger cloth from the local thrift store costing $1 for all 15 tags.
Ecru ribbon from local thrift store 50 cents and most of the roll still left for more projects.
Buttons, thread, paper shapes cut from recycled holiday cards, used holiday postage stamps, fabric scraps, Bounce dryer sheets that tear or cut wonderfully, painted Lysol cleaning cloths, crocheted snowflakes, scrapbook paper scraps and tape transfers.

No two alike. So fun to just put each one together. I sewed most of them on the machine and some just with needle and thread.
Each one unique with a personality of their own.

As you can see...really anything goes to make these fun and easy scrap tags.
Cost involved is virtually next to nothing.
Time involved is truly fun and rewarding.
These tags are also easy to mail to those far away whom you wish to remember at this holiday season.
I do hope you have been inspired to make some fun and easy scrap tags. I hope you share photos of the tags you make. The possibilites are endless.
Happy creating...

  1. Good Evening Sweetie...
    Oh my what a beautiful share this evening. I love these tags. And to think I have been throwing bounce sheets in the trash. Who would've thought, but you my creative friend. I thank you for the tip, and I have so enjoyed seeing your labors of love this evening.

    The snowflake is just beautiful and serene. The wreath appears to be feathers and is so pretty, and I love the holiday ornaments. The red with the star is my favorite. Holiday and hearts and Father Christmas. Oh my, you have been SO busy.

    Where oh where do you find the time? So beautiful sweet friend. I love them better than the paper ones.

    Have a gorgeous evening, and again thank you for the beautiful share. You are so talented. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  8. These are so much fun! I like that you stitched some of them with just needle and thread, as I don't have a sewing machine. Great idea! Theresa
