Birthday Window Tags Basics

To create the window, nest and center the small tag die into the larger tag die. Secure the dies with washi tape. Designer’s Note: neutralize the washi tape by tapping it on your shirt or pants a couple of times before use. Then die-cut with white cardstock to make your window tag.

Take off the smaller tag die and die-cut a large solid tag from white cardstock and from tulle material.

Add a piece of patterned paper (or cardstock) to the solid cardstock tag with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser. Using the same adhesive, secure the tulle behind the window tag’s opening. Now we have our basics down!

Embellishing Details

Randomly place several 3D Foam Stars on the patterned paper panel. Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside by cover them with either glitter or flock. Simply peel off the top liner, pour flock over them, press to secure, and tap off excess. EASY!

For the edges around the tag, apply 3D Foam Strips. You can use a whole strip and cut pieces to complete the edges. Remove the top liner and place the window tag on top of the star tag.

Punch a hole on top of your tag, thread the twine and tie a bow. Stamp or computer-generate a sentiment, cut it into a strip. Add a few sequins. Secure both with Adhesive Dots Micro.

Window Tag without Tulle

Tulle not your thing? You can easily make a window tag with no tulle!

Follow the same steps as the first tag, just skip cutting a tag from tulle. Add stars to the patterned paper panel and cover the stars with flock. But how about adding a few 3D Foam Circles for visual interest!

Shaking Up a Window Tag

Another fun twist of window tags is to turn one into a shaker tag! It’s easy! Replace the tulle in your window to put transparency behind it.

Add the largest 3D Foam Stars on the patterned paper. Use 3D Foam Strips (or Crafty Foam Tape) to close the border around your patterned paper panel.

Add small beads or sequins in the middle of the star. Next, adhere your window tag on top to seal. Rub your fingers along the edges of the tag to make sure your shaker has firmly adhered.
