Lots of Tags

Here are a bunch of different tags that we created at my Holiday Open House. I had different stamping stations set up with an array of tags to create. I got the idea for the gift card holder tag from the talented Maui Stamper! The little bird tag in the front uses the Baby Wipe Technique. We just added different drops of reinker in various shades of blue to a folded baby wipe. Then you use the wipe as your stamp pad and you get a cool variation in color tones.
