15 Easy Gift Tag Ideas

This time of year it seems we all need gift tags of some variety and tags are a great way to do some scrap stash busting. I made quite a few sets of tags for the holiday season and I had so much fun with them.

Tags are a quick and easy project to do as one-off designs but are also great for mass producing if you keep the designs simple. They're also a great way to use up stashes of die cuts you might have leftover from other projects.
