Materials:

  • Marvy Uchidas Clever Lever Tag Punch
  • Brown grocery bags
  • Fleur De lis punch
  • Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Corner Punch
  • Adhesive pearls or gemstones
  • Old book
  • Tacky glue
  • Ribbon

Instructions:

  1. Use Marvy Uchidas Clever Lever Tag Punch to punch tag shapes from the recycled brown grocery bag and black card stock scraps. If you do not have this punch or cannot find it locally, Scrapbook.com has a cool one made by Fiskers that punches 2 1/2" tag shapes. Punch as many tags from the recycled brown grocery bags and card stock as you will like, in pairs, as you will be gluing them together.

Find some inspirational words or occassional words in the book such as "you," "mother,"  "father," "Believe," and so forth. Think about how you may be using the tags. If you are going to use them on a scrapbook page, you may search for entirely different words.
