Paint Chip Gift Tags

I love tags.  I love making them, looking at them, collecting them, hanging them everywhere...  To me they are little bits of art.

Half the fun is finding a base.  I love shipping tags but I also love using something different.  Today I wanted a quick and inexpensive way to make tags. So naturally I grabbed some paint chips from my favorite home improvement store....  I picked the shapes and colors I wanted.

Basic supplies needed are paint chips, Susan K. Weckesser Color Pop stamp pads, stamp sets, acrylic block, scissors, twine, a paper punch and embellishments.

I love the ombre look of paint chips.

For these tags I used the Painted Sentiments stamp set.

I was particularly fond of the shape of these chips.  They seemed perfect for the One Of A Kind Winter {Christmas Campaign} stamp set.

And they seemed perfect for a whole little street of houses using the HeartFULL Homes stamp set.

Also from the HeartFULL Homes stamp set is this sweet set of flowers....

Perfect for the season is the Very, Very Merry stamp set.

And then I played with these paint chips too...

I kept my embellishments simple: sticky back crystals, pearls, and some twine to tie them on....

You could fancy them up with whatever goodies make your heart sing.

I wanted to focus on the simplicity of the stamps and paint chips.

Any of the stamps that did not get a great impression, I just did not use for this project.

This may become my new go to for gift tags...

It was such a fast and easy project.

I think the snowmen are my favorites...

These would be perfect for an art abandonment...

I hope I inspired you to do some quick creating today.
