Like brown paper packages tied up with string

are a few of my
Favorite Things.

So that is just what I have been designing for the last few weeks.
Like these cute little Purse Tags I made.  I decided to make some with regular words like this one....and with texting abbreviations for an instant personalized message.  These tags would look great on a purse, bookbag or manbag.
I had been wanting to come up with a contemporary and stylish way to label my glass storage jars so I decided to make hang tags for them too.  I love the way they turned out and it was the perfect finishing touch these glass jars needs.  
These Salt and Pepper containers from the dollar store were exactly the right size for my coffee bar in the kitchen.  I put cinnamon and stevia in them and made these tags to identify the ingredients.   It makes it so much easier for my guests to find what they need when getting their morning coffee.
Of course by this time I had gone completely bonkers making tags for everything imaginable, even my homemade yogurt! 
I even made tags for my storage boxes that had a space for a
 label, but I made  metal tags for them instead.
 With all this tag creating going on I decided to start listing some of these on Etsy.
  So of course I needed to decide how to package my little gems......
This is what I came up with for the Garden Tags I showed you earlier this week.
I grabbed a great picture from the Graphics Fairy  and printed 3 across using the "wallet" size printer option, then cut them long with the blank space below each picture for the bottom.  After punching holes for the stakes to go through I slid them into cello bags for that finishing touch! 

Simply styled, Professional looking and Functional.  I am already dreaming about and working on other great packaging uses for some of The Graphics Fairy's artful freebies.  I'll be posting those up soon.

Thanks for stopping in today!  Until next time.......I wish you Peace.

    lovely tags - your package looks exactly like the back of my Matchbox. We must have the same taste.Exept mine didn't come from the GF.
