Ten tags

This week, we had our parent-teacher conferences at the kids' schools and I always like to bring a little something for the teachers. You know, just to say: "Thanks for putting up with my kids every day." Ha!

This time, I made some Cowgirl Cookies and put them in bags. Then, of course, I had to make some tags. I decided to use Ren-Yi's Papertrey Princess challenge: "to dust of your old first loves and create something around your favorite stamp sets."

The first PTI stamp sets that I bought were Fillable Frames #8, 9 & 10. So, I challenged myself to make some tags for the bags using these stamps and dies. I needed ten (Jonah and Sage have 6 teachers between the two of them and Austin has four. Crazy!)

So here's what I made:


For these, I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, kraft), stamps (bb:newsprint, happy trails, fillable frames #10) & dies (tag sale #5, fillable frames #10).




For these, I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, harvest gold), stamps (in bloom, fillable frames #8 & 9) & dies (tag sale #5, fillable frames #8).


For these ones, I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, kraft), stamps (grunge me, fillable frames #9) & dies (tag sale #5, fillable frames #9).

And for these ones, I used PTI cardstock (rustic white), stamps (fillable frames #9) & dies (tag sale #5).

Thanks for looking!

These tags are all so wonderful. Each one is so creative and clever. I'm sure that your kids are joys to have in the classroom, but how nice of you to take cookies--just in case.

Good idea. Teachers need some nourishment in between parent conferences. These tags made up so cute. **Linda
