Thank you tag!

I made this Butterfly tag for a co-worker who was kind enough to help me out when I was in a pinch!  She didn't have to be so nice about it but she was!  It made my day brighter for sure!! 
I used a manilla tag and stained it with some Tim Holtz's stains.  I then used his Distress Ink to the edges- This one has the Vintage Photo Ink to make it look aged.  It is one of my favorite colors.  I did stamp it with one of my written word stamps in the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The larger butterfly is from Memory Box dies as well as the flowing leaf vine.  The smaller butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch! I did add some bling to the tag- just to brighten it a bit.   Making tags is new to me, I never knew what to use them for?   Now, I like them as much as a card!  It doesn't take long to make them and it is a challenge to see what will fit on them!  I think of them as small works of art!  Below is a picture of the back of the tag.  I added a ribbon and an embellishment to finish it off! 


  1. Hi Chris! Love your tag. She will to receive it. Love the colors and the use of the metal corner. I love that you put the sentiment on it..So great. I use them for cards, as gift tags, for scrapbook pages, and a lot I just tie on gift bags and stamp to: from: on them. Thank you for commenting on my Tim Holtz tag on SCS. It was fun to make as we learned to tint old pics and I used one of my late hubby. I made this one just for me. Enjoy your 4th.

    1. You did a great job on your tag! Love the butterflies and fanciful flourish! Your sentiment is so nice! So cool!!

  2. Fantastic tag Chris! I'm glad to hear co-workers will still help each other out when in a pinch.
