Manilla tags & beautiful stamps

I use inexpensive manilla tags for many of things - but one of my favorite things is to make cute & simple stamped tags for gifts. 


I love the combination of the simple tag & a beautiful stamp in a lovely color. 
(just one color & second generation stamping (stamping 2nd time without reinking the stamp) to make a lighter shade)!

Here is a set I made for a quick and inexpensive hostess gift. No fuss - just stamping in lovely colors!!

The supplies list is limited:
Hero Arts CL383 Antique Butterflies, Hero Arts Delicate Leaf Clusters, Hero Arts CL519 Many Dots, Ranger distress inks (dusty concord, peeled paint & broken china)
Manilla tags


I used binding rings to hold the set together with some matching ribbon & twine.

Wrapping it up with matching tissue paper & twine for gift wrapping & some matching flowers & homemad jam.



Have a great Sunday!!
