Use printed tags with craft items to make hanging tags for your products or gifts. This is a sponsored post with OnlineLabels.com but all ideas and opinions are my own.

Today I’m sharing some basic ideas directed at those of you who think you are “not crafty” or maybe who don’t have a ton of time to craft. Even if you’re busy running a home based business, these tricked out tags are quick and easy enough that you can use them to add a personal touch to your packaging.  Print your own paper tags using your home printer and perforated paper from OnlineLabels.com, then add a few simple touches to give your tags a crafty, handmade look.

Basic: Print and Use

Start out with white printable cardboard tags from OnlineLabels.com. Use the free template available on the site to add your logo or message to the tags, then print them at home on your own printer.  I use my HP Envy Wireless Printer.  Just fold the paper back and forth on the perforated lines to easily remove the tags.

Simple: Change Things Up

Make your hang tags stand out by using something other than twine.  Get noticed by using tulle or by making tassels. Watch my video to see how I like to loop twine and ribbon through the hole in the tag. Another simple way to make your tags “pop” is to ink the edges.  Run an ink pad around the perimeter of the tag to add a dash of color.

Easy:  Add Embellishments

Make your tags three dimensional in seconds by attaching bling, rhinestones, fabric flowers, and other fun embellishments.  Use glue dots to quickly attach fun accents like the big purple bow on this party llama.

Challenging Tricked out Tags:  Add Shine

These ideas are a little bit more time consuming but pack a punch.  Use paint that has ultra fine glitter in it to add glitter to your tags without dealing with a giant mess.  Deco Foil used with double sided tape makes it easy to add instant metallic shine to your tags.  See my video above for how to do that. Mod Podge Dimensional Magic helps give your tags an epoxy sticker look and makes images “pop”.  See the video below for an example of how to apply the “magic”.

So, there you have it, lots of fun and quick ways to trick out your tags and make your labels stand out from the rest!  For more easy label ideas for selling and giving handmade projects, see this post.
