Super Simple Bug Luv Tags


These were so fun to whip up. I am planning on using them to draw prizes at a cardmaking party I'm having in mid-Feb.  

I wanted them to be cute, but I also wanted them to be super quick and also flat so that putting them all in a bowl they wouldn't stick together or catch on each other.

Enter the solution, my Chomas Creations gel pen holder.  If you want to see a video I made of a card using it to see how it works you can check out this post.

For these particular tags I did 2 pages in my Gypsy.  One for all the writing, and one for the cutting of the tags.  The font is from A Child's Year, the bug head is from Store Front - but there are other cartridges with bug heads, and the tag is from Plantin' Schoolbook.

Making tags with this gel pen holder is a snap!  Can you imagine how much harder it would have been to cut and glue all these teeny tiny little pieces!  I always have trouble cutting this bug head very small because of the eyes and the antenna - using the gel pen holder that's no longer a concern.

Hope you enjoy today's simple project!  When the time comes I will be sharing lots of more pics of party favors and such from the event I'm having.
