Inspiration Saturdays: Quick & Easy Tags


Here I am ready to inspire you with something quick and easy.

We all need some tags on hand to add a special message to a gift or bunch of flowers and today I'll show you how to make them in a very quick way.

Colored digis are particularly useful to make quick projects. 
I'm not a fan of pre-colored digis because I like to color and I think it is the best part of my creative moments, but sometimes I must admit they are very useful.

First, when you are in a hurry.
Second, when you print small images.

Today, I've decided to make some pretty tags. 

First, I copied the tag shapes on a white embossed paper and cut them:

 I inked the edges with a color matching my colored digi:

I printed my digis on a piece of cardstock and cut them:

I finally made some halos using some gold wire and a pencil:

I then gathered all my supplies in pretty containers, I added rhinestones, ribbons and sentiments:

And that's how they turned out:
Aren't they cute? And super quick!
In half an hour you can make a batch of them and have them ready every time you need to add a special touch to a thank you gift or bunch of flowers or cookies or...

This lovely angel is available in Broken Box Stock shop: she is Angel Toodle, available here in color and here as a black and white digi stamp. 

I'm entering my tags into the following challenges:
