Great Ideas For Gorgeous Bird Song Tags!


Hello G45ers,

Happy Thursday and welcome to another delightful day of fun here at the Graphic 45 blog! We hope you are all having a splendid day! We've got some grand inspiration to share with all of you! Today is all about gorgeous tags featuring our new Bird Song collection! Tags are incredibly fun to create and they have so many uses! They are a great way to practice new techniques. You can give them as gifts or give them in place of cards. You can also use them to help add some extra pizazz to a gift project. Plus they have lots of practical uses such as book marks, or home decor. You can even attach a bunch of pretty tags to a piece of decorative ribbon to create a banner! Tags are where it's at! Today we have three beautiful tags by Tara Orr, Maiko Miwa and Susan Lui! All of these tags were created using our marvelous Bird Song collection. We're sure you're going to love them!

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to enter to win our fabulous blog prize! This week we're giving away this great Little Darlings prize pack! Just leave us a blog or Facebook comment today for your chance to win. A random winner will be chosen from this week's comments and announced on our blog tomorrow! 


First up is this wonderful assortment of pretty Bird Song tags by Tara Orr. She used recycled packaging from Graphic 45 Staples to create the backing for these fabulous tags. This is such a great idea! You can even use scraps of cardboard and other types of strong cardstock for tags. So the next time you've got some robust cardstock scraps or Graphic 45 Staples packaging, don't throw them away! Turn those scraps into a beautiful tag! Here is what Tara had to say about these super sweet creations.

"I did a set of coordinating Bird Song Tags - LOVE the colours and the imagery in this collection - over the top gorgeous!! These would make great tags for gifts or you could even make them into cards by adhering a plain backing and writing a personal message." -Tara Orr

Next we have another incredible Bird Song tag to share with you. Maiko Miwa created this splendid piece by layering the beautiful Bird Song papers and pretty embellishments. This tag would make an amazing gift or card substitute. The cheerful and soothing colors and designs of Bird Song are sure to bring a smile to the face of a friend or loved one! Get inspired by Maiko's fabulous creation. Imagine how you'd create a beautiful Bird Song tag of your very own!

Last but not least is this dazzling Bird Song tag by Susan Lui.The Bird Song 12x12 paper pad was used to create this exquisite little treasure. There are so many gorgeous papers to choose from in the Bird Song 12x12 paper pad. You'll never have a shortage of ideas! You can see how Susan used paper distressing, paper layering as well as pretty embellishments to create this lovely tag. It definitely captures the femininity and vintage charm of this fantastic collection!
