Hi everyone, Christine here today with a tutorial for tags with Flowers and Hearts. Each month I meet up with some craft-loving friends and we exchange little gifts. I like to personalize my gifts with special tags and it is easily achievable with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®!
Making the Tag Bases
Select pretty patterned papers and kraft luggage tags. Cut the papers to size and affix into place with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. These dispensers have 150 feet of long-lasting adhesive, and when it’s gone you can easily drop in a refill. There is a quick video to use them below.
Determine your tag design. My tag layout is fairly simple. Next, cut pieces of patterned paper. I used the reverse of the floral paper. Position and affix to create a block across the bottom of each tag.
A perfect way to enhance your tags is to add Kraft Creative Photo Corners. These are self-adhesive and embossed. You’ll find them in a variety of colors including white, which you can ink to customize the color to your projects.
Embellish with Flowers and Hearts
For the main design elements, I die-cut leaves, flowers and hearts. Start by adding the heart die cut as the base of the tag embellishments. You can use a combination of 3D Foam Squares White Mix in regular and small sizes to secure it to the base and give it a pop of dimension.
Make sure to ink the flowers and leaves to match the color scheme in the tags. Then begin layering the die cuts starting from the flowers and leaves. Don’t forget to add a pearl to each flower center.
Here are the finished tags with some handwritten inspirational words, perfect for my craft loving friends.
Here’s a 60-second video showing how to use and refill your E-Z Runner Grand Dispenser:

Hello Christine, Love these tags, a good way to use up lots of paper that’s too small for a card, and the photo corners add such a nice finishing touch, Thanks for sharing. .crafting hugs Christine x
