Make Your Own Hang Tags Tutorial

I am sending a few things off to be sold at Fabulous Me Boutique and Gifts in the Cumberland Gap, TN and I have a few craft shows coming. up. My items were in need of hang tags. Keeping with my vow to use what I have on hand to keep costs down, I found a whole package of Avery printable return address labels that I had bought at least a year ago and never used. I went online to Avery.com and created some labels with my store logo and information and printed them off. It was really easy. 

I wanted my labels to have some pretty backing so I stuck them on a sheet of decorative scrapbook paper. 


 Then I cut each label out with scissors. Now I am sure there is probably a much easier and faster process for this but I do not own any fancy machines like Cricut and such and this is about as "new school" as I get. It actually went fairly quickly because the labels guided my scissors along for easy trimming. And VoilĂ ! I have some pretty hang tags with all my information in them. 


I even made some winter themed ones for my Christmas Ornaments.


I found some invisible thread in my sewing box so I strung the labels on the thread like so with a sewing needle.



And here you have it! A hand made hang tag!


It really was extremely easy, quick, and cost effective. 
Now I am off to make some business cards!
