Cut out your tag shape and split the folds to make your multiple tags.

You can save the offcuts for embellishing.

  1. i am going 2 make them just 4 me hahahah

  2. no1grandma says

    There is a spray you can use on them to make them acid free. I have use them on several of my projects with great results. Just about any scrapbooks store will have it or know waht is is.

  3. These basically defeat the purpose of scrapbooking because they are not safe to use near photos and may damage your pages. Why not just use brown scrapbook paper and give it a look of a brown bag. These tags may be okay for other crafts but not scrappin
