My AH Crafty Challenge was slightly modified this week. I still made product hang tags with a pocket, but because I traveled for work work a couple days this week, I didn’t have time to master the Silhouette Cameo & software. As I was surfing Pinterest, and other bloggers that have this thing mastered, the more I discover it can do….cool stuff. I WILL figure this thing out! Check out a couple bloggers below that have some great tutorials.
And more options on my Pinterest Board – Of Course I Can DIY
So, to save time, I went online and found hang tag templates available through Martha Stewart’s site. The templates were perfect for what I had in mind. I printed out the page with the wedding tags and rigged together a template to include a fold over pocket.
Card stock…what to use, what to use. I knew I was going to use a watercolor for one of the hang tags, but I wanted to have a few examples for my project reveal. Plus, I received two orders that would need hang tags before shipping. Perfect timing. I started digging through my messy Mad Men desk, and came across some leftover invitation from our elopement party. We had ordered the postcard style invites from Tiny Prints; the gray and white chevron pattern on the back was perfect. I also found some Atomic Hostess shop postcards with promo codes that I ship with customer orders. Most of the supplies I needed, I had on hand. Out of pocket expense for making these hang tags / gift tags is minimal.

Heavy Card Stock Paper
Box Cutter – to score the fold over pocket
Scissors – because I cheated by cutting these out
Elmer’s Glue – to secure the Washi Tape holding the pocket down
Brown Kraft Paper – to cover the invite side, or the back of the chevron pattern
After painting, cutting, washi-ing, glueing, and hole punching, I slid my mini Moo business card & a loyalty discount promo code into the hang tag pocket and attached it to my orders. I love how these turned out. They’re great branding. Another use…since everyone is determined to start the holiday countdown, before summer is even over, these would be a good gift tag project.
Stop by Monday to check out my next project….hard to believe it’ll be the 6th week & project, and I’m finally knocking things off my list.
