Gift Tags

I made these star gift tags this afternoon for my Sunday School class for those going up to the 2nd grade. I found the stars on a website a long time ago along with some other tags and saved them to the computer. I don't remember the name of the website. I used Recollections A is for Apple 12x12 paper and traced the stars on it & then cut them out and glued them to green almost lime green Deluxe Textured Cardstock (again I traced the stars on a 12x12 sheet and cut them out). I wrote "Moving Up" on the stars with a black American Crafts Basics gel pen and used a stencil to trace the letters. I don't know the manufacturer's name of the stencil, it's not really for scrapbooking, but I use it for scrapbooking! Then I used Sticko Time for School stickers, those came in handy :), to decorate the tags a little more and I added Recollections 2012 ribbon and didn't have enough for all 6 stars so I used some red orange ribbon out of my stash! I made 6 stars and didn't want to take a pic of all 6 since they are very similar. The lady that I co-teach the Preschoolers-1st grade with bought the kids moving up a gift and she asked me to make gift tags. I think the kids and their parents will love them! Oh, I also used Making Memories Eyelets & set them with my hammer from my Making Memories Tool Kit II to attach the ribbon. I tried to make the ribbon long enough so the tags can be tied to the gift, but if it can't be tied they can be taped. I put our names on the back. TFL! I hope you all have a good weekend! I'm have Mirror Mirror on reserve at Red box and am gonna get it tomorrow. I can't wait to watch it!
