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!

tag-titles-3Use the tags individually on a project, or bundle together in a pocket or envelope. These little tags would also be a cute TOP TEN list. Also a great embellishment idea for any season or holiday.

Make up a batch of these for your National Scrapbook Day activities. Maybe even show your friends how to make their own set. Its always fun to share crafty ideas!

Happy Creating!

    These are great, Michelle! I’ve been scouring Pinterest for something similar to yours, and nothing comes close! It was hard to get the actual page of this post from Pinterest, so I actually had to Google to find this 🙂 Thanks for the beautiful thoughts!
