easy gift tags

This weekend my youngest daughter was invited to a Disney birthday party. She was so excited to dress up as her favorite Disney character and spend some time with her favorite girlfriends. We were particularly busy with musical performances and family get-togethers, so we were lucky to fit this party into the schedule. I had bought the present earlier in the week, and we already had a leftover gift bag, but when it came time to put everything together I didn't have much time to make a cute gift tag. Then I remembered some leftover journaling cards I had, so I pulled out my Typecast typewriter and seconds later I had the perfect custom gift tag!


I've started doing more pocket pages, or Project Life, as some crafters call it. I've got several sets of journaling cards but I never use them all before I get a new set. So I've got a bunch of leftovers that need to be used for something. (Please tell me I'm not the only memory keeper that has this issue!)


I occasionally use them on traditional scrapbook pages and cards, but they also make the perfect tags for gifting to your loved ones! I just pulled out a few that matched and narrowed them down to one. Then I stuck in into my We R Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter and added a personalized birthday message.


What I love about my typewriter is that it feels more personal, like handwriting, but it looks much neater than my messy handwriting does.


Once I typed up my message, I punched a hole in the corner of the journaling card with my Crop-A-Dile and attached the card to my gift bag.


This took me literally seconds and is such a cute and easy way to add a personalized gift tag. Plus I'm using up my craft stash which is always a good thing!
