Tag Tuesday–Paper Banners from Scraps

Paper bunting-style banners are showing up everywhere lately.  I used the paper banners in miniature form on today’s tag, using the tiniest of patterned paper scraps.   The end result is a mini tag that could be used on a scrapbook page or card, or by itself on a baby or wedding shower gift.

Paper Banner Tag by Carla Schauer

This little project began as a plain office supply tag, only 2.75 x 1.375 inches.  (These are great to buy in bulk and swap with friends to get a variety of sizes inexpensively.)

Small office supply tag for crafting

I cut 3 (.5″ wide) triangles from patterned paper scraps and glued them across the tag to make the paper banner, and added a rub-on sentiment to the bottom.    A button covered up the hole reinforcement to make it less “office-y”, and I replaced the plain white string with some green jute for extra color.

My end result was a tiny tag with a big impact.  The next time you want to experiment with a trend like my paper banner, try it on a tag!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time…
