How to Make a Bling Free Gentleman’s Gift Tag

Charity here with a tutorial on how to make a bling free gentleman’s gift tag. For those of you with men adverse to glitter you have seen the signs. At the sight of too much shine their eyes widen, their breathing accelerates, and you can see their hand twitching, desperate to vacuum up the mess before it happens!
~ Gentleman’s Gift Tags ~

Even with a ban on glitz and glam, a gift tag doesn’t have to be plain. I used primary colors, punches, and layers of paper. This kept the tags simple without being too basic.
The base layer is cut to 5″x 3.25″. The middle is 4.75″x 3″.
The top is a sticker in complimentary colors.

For the Thanks Tag I used a die to cut the word “thanks”
from the center of the sticker.

For the Lion Tag the corners of the middle layer are punched
with Kreaxions Punch #305. The base layer corners are rounded.
  For the Royal Tag I used the Kreaxions Punch#611 on the lower corner.
 After assembling the tag I trimmed the top corners so the layers lined up.
 I cut down on the frills by using ric-rac to hang the tag.
The boys need never know it is from my collection of vintage trims.
That will be our little secret!
