How To: Border Punch Tags

I saw this somewhere on the internet when I was researching something else then when I went searching for the How To I could not find it again.  Here's my version of what I remember.

Have you ever wanted a small tag for a card.  Maybe the dies or punches you have aren't quite right.  Make tags using your border punch. 
1. Punch a piece of cardstock with a border punch
2. Cut the cardstock at the edge of each pattern to create tags.
3. Use the tags as desired.  They can be tied on or adhered with with a brad.

I love this idea.  A totally new use for your border punches.  Give it a try and leave me a comment about your results.  See my next post for samples of the tags I've made.  This is a Martha Stewart punch.


  1. These are great, Sylvia! I love tags and I'll have to give this a try for sure. Thanks for posting this.

  2. That's a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great idea Sylvia. Another one you might try is using a round scallop punch to make heart shapes. Just cut between every two scallops to the middle. They make deep hearts.
