Gift Tags Project

For PINK SATURDAY BLOG PARTY this week, I am sharing my most recent project.  (easy skill level) 
I have had these manilla reinforced shipping labels in my cupboard for some time. They are sold at Staples or similar type stores. I found acid free rub on transfers (craft section) which I rubbed on with a wooden pop cycle stick.  I tied on pink or lavender ribbon.

The rub on transfers are pansies, ivy and words of encouragement. They have a nostalgic, charming look to them.  There is enough room on the front or back to write a message.  Then just tie on a package or gift bag.  What is nice is that these are all occasion cards.

Thank you Beverly for Hosting our weekly get-together:  http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Pansies are one of my all time favorite flowers. All the different varieties and colors and they are always so cheerful looking. Happy Pink Saturday Monah!

Good idea! I also have the tags and some transfer stickers in my cupboard. These will make cute tags for my found items in my shop. Have a great day.

Hi Monah, I love using those tags and keep a stash of them in my studio. Love the way you decorated them. Easy and sweet Easter tags. xo

These are dear! If I received a package with one, I would feel like the giver thought I was special!

I save all my pretty created tags from friends/family ... they sit in the foyer in a 3-tiered stand. If I had one of yours it would be center focused, they are that beautiful.

I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

Thank you.
Have a beautiful PS weekend ~

Cute tags Monah. Rub on's are one of my favorite craft items. I just love the look they give. I think tags are such a fun alternative to a card now and then. Hope your Saturday was Pinky!

Dear Monah,
Thanks for you comment about my cat. I love your tags. I went to a Dishes from the Past store in Ft Worth that is going out of business this week and bought lots of floral china for 70% off. Floral is growing on me. xo Jenny
p.s. get rid of the word verification, I can't read the silly things.

I love rub on transfers, and also pansies. I like to put the colors in big blocks in my garden so the colors are intense. Thanks for this simple idea for what to do with the transfers. Those tags would be useful in so many ways.

Thank you for visitng Cozy Home Kitchen and enjoying my spring tablescape.
