Tags for Download: Minc (or not)!

We're having a weird kind of day today - a high in the 70s in July!   That hardly ever happens.  That's pretty amazing, but it's still really humid.  Every hair on my head is about 4 times thicker than normal and the gray ones are really crazy!  I've gotten to where I just have to say "Oh, well...."

I picked up some great tags at Michaels the other day - all pretty, gold and shiny.   They inspired this card and the tags I have for download below.  Now this card has something really cool, besides all the  pretty gold.

It's front is a die cut panel!  I love how it's see through.

Let me give you a tip that I figured out the HARD way:  Give yourself 1/4 to 1/2" to work with at the fold.  It is REALLY hard to fold over 1/8"!

To figure out what size card base you need measure your die cut panel and add 1/4 to 1/2" to the length.  Example:  This die cut panel is 4" x 5 1/4".  The card base before trimming needs to be 4" x 5 1/2 or 5 3/4".  Score it at 5 1/4" from the bottom.  You want the base to be the same size as the die cut panel.  Fold over the extra and then trim the fold piece to about 1/8" (or the width of the frame of your die cut panel) and glue.

Okay, let's have a little more fun with tags!  You can download these HERE.

They are great for foiling with a Minc machine or printing them on different colored cardstock.

Here I printed them on yellow:

Love this paper. I think I've had it about ten years!  I so wish I knew where I got this from.  It's about 20 inches wide and came on a roll.  It is a lovely weight and texture.  It would be nice to see what they have now.  

You can see how to make a gusseted bag on THIS POST.

I also foiled all of the tags in gold, pink and teal.

Just went really simple with this.  So hard to photograph the pretty shine!  

Hope you're having a wonderful week whatever the weather is where you are!


  1. Fabulous makes Lori. The die-cut front to the card looks super.
