    Punch a circle from the corner of metallic cardstock with the smaller of the two punches.

    Make a tag rim with the larger punch by turning the punch over and positioning the larger circle equally over the smaller circle.

    On a piece of scratch paper, dab a small amount of 2-Way glue around the tag rim.

  6. Step 6

    Position tag rim over stamped image. Let dry.

  7. Step 7

    Punch out rim and stamped image with largest punch.

    Repeat steps 3-4 to make a second rim, and adhere it to the back of the tag.

  8. Step 8

    Adhere tags to your project using glue dots, brads, eyelets, or ribbon.

    Repeat steps 3-4 to make a second rim, and adhere it to the back of the tag.


    Give it Some Color
    Make tag rims with colored cardstock or use colored cardstock for the center of the tag.
