Scrapbook Tag Tutorial

As you can see I have a postal tag here, that is a little big to be an embellishment, so let’s turn it into a cute scrapbook tag!

We’ll be using an old postal tag like the one in this photo.

So firstly I’m literally going to just cut this right down to the size.

I want and turn it into a lovely embellishment that can either have some journaling on it so we’ve got to cut it down to size.

See the photo below to see what I’ve cut it down to!

Next I’m going to choose a nice washi tape that I think would look lovely through it. Maybe a nice bright yellow.

Now I’m going to double up my washi tape. So it doesn’t stick , and it also stops it being see through (because the tape is now twice as thick), so this just creates a better color. So I’m just folding in on itself.

Then I cut the washi tape so I have a length of about 10cm.

So now it’s more like a paper ribbon. And then I’m going to put it through the hole at the top of the scrapbook tag!
