These Title Tags are a wonderful way to use up scraps. To assemble your own tags, select a solid cardstock, or as with these tags, use paper from a vintage scrapbook. I love the texture and the aging color of the paper-a great contrast to the more vibrant, and smooth, cardstock tabs.
Once you’ve selected the solid “base,” cut the cardstock or vintage paper into narrow strips. I cut the vintage paper into 1″x4″ and .75″x4″ strips. So, once assembled, the entire tag (without string) measures 4 inches.
Next, cut your cardstock scraps into either .75″x 2.5″ or 1″x 2.5″ strips. I think the small patterned cardstock, such as what you would use when making a card, works best. Fold these pieces in half to create a firm fold line. Add adhesive to the backside of the cardstock scraps and fold over the top of the longer strip of solid cardstock or vintage paper. The patterned cardstock will be visible on both the front and back of the tag. Punch a hole, add string, and stamp on a title! Super easy!
