Punching tags

Ever wonder how to make those long tags?

Trim your cardstock to about 1-3/8" (for the large SU! tag punch) width and slide it into your tag punch.

Gently pull the cardstock thru the hole.

Stop when you see the other end of the cardstock.

Line it back up with the edge and give it a punch!

There's a super cute treat holder I made over the holidays for yummy chocolates with this technique. I will try to upload that later tonight. I'm still trying to remember who I borrowed the idea from!

Cheers!

oh tags ... what a cool way to finesse a punch, too!

hey, I'm really just writing to ask what the music is playing on your blog. If it says somewhere on your blog, I'm embarrassed and illiterate and I admit it -- fact is I'm at work and in a hurry and never think of it at the same time I'm leaving you a comment!

Hi,Sweets! I got your comment about the music -- I KNEW I recognized it. The Piano is one of my mom's and my favorite movies, AND I have the soundtrack. My Mom is a concert-trained pianist who 'let it go' when she got married, but she plays every day and when I go to her apartment, I sit very still on the couch with tears running down my cheeks, just to hear her. I'm glad you play for your sons ... I'd LOVE to hear you!
