Carded & Tagged by Xyron

Today we're getting carded and tagged with these cute, all-in-one
gift card holder tags featuring vintage-style printables and fantastic adhesives from
XYRON, INC.

I've used this set of birthday "vintage kids" printables on a few occasions and 
they're still a favorite to create with...especially quick tags that can be layered with
a few small embellishments.  Everyone LOVES receiving these on a package!

First, I started with some heavy textured patterned papers from Carta Bella.  
For each tag, I cut the paper to measure 6"W X 5"H.  The paper was scored
in half vertically so that it would measure 3"W X 5"H when folded. 
Next, I traced around a gift card to find placement for the adhesive.
(see above)

I used the Xyron Mega Runner
 (permanent adhesive) to apply runs of adhesive
along the outside tracing of the gift card.  The paper was then folded back in 
half and a pocket for the card has been created.

After cutting out each of the printables, I made them into stickers with the
Xyron 3" Sticker Maker.  This is my #1 go-to and favorite way to make just about 
anything 3" or less a sticker.  Just give the cellophane top a good rub before
peeling off and you have a sticker that will stay put!

Now for the fun of putting all of the tags together:





Each of the tags were dressed with a smaller tag on top, a row of pom poms
along the bottom and all sorts of sweet embellishments from my stash!
To the top, I threaded through a strand of twine for hanging and a
whimsical boutique style bow to complete the cuteness!

Now a gift card (or folded money) can be inserted to the top and added to
a gift bag or card front. Aren't they delightful!?!

I'm very excited to be back and designing with Xyron!
I've literally been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I enjoy all types of
DIY, home decor, mini albums, cards...you name it!
I look forward to sharing my Xyron projects with you throughout the year, but in
the meantime, please visit the XYRON FACEBOOK
page to see more awesome projects!

Later, y'all!
