Floss Tags

I finally have something to show and tell! I made some floss tags today to use with my silks and other specialty threads (other than GAST and WDW). They were surprisingly easy to make and I think they look pretty good!

I knew I wanted something fairly sturdy, but not cardboard. So I took a 12x12 piece of cardstock and a coordinating 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper and glued them together. I used craft adhesive spray because glue sticks just don't stick good for me. Be careful if you use this ~ take it outside and try not to get it on any skin! I sprayed the cardstock all over and then carefully laid the scrapbook paper on top of it, making sure everything lined up. I let them dry overnight (but I'm sure an hour or so would do). Then using my paper cutter, I cut them into 2.75 x 2 rectangles. Punched a small hole at the top and a bigger hole at the bottom. And voila! I started with my Vickie Clayton HDF. I just cut the original tag up to get the color and taped that to my new floss tag. Was that clear as mud or what? I can't coherently explain how to boil water sometimes!


  1. The tags look great - wonderful job :)

  2. very creative tags and so pretty too.
    Be always in stitches

  3. Isn't this the funnest project! Made bunches of these a long while back, also used scrap book paper. These make great little tie on *bows* when sending gifts to stitchy friends. Hope you're well, nice to see you posting:)

  4. Oh, how pretty! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. The floss tags are so cute!!! That is a great idea. I have tons of scrap book papers that I will never use for scrapping but this is a great idea. Also, go look at BeckySC's blog; she's got great pics of her craft room and she's got her overdyed floss hanging on tie racks; like you'd hang in a closet. It's pretty cool.
