If you've never used circle tags before, here are some ideas.
I often use these tags as cupcake toppers. Here are the toppers I used for Mother's Day. These were created by Kim at The Tomkat Studio and were free to download and print!
Favor or Gift Tags
I've also used them as favor tags. Since my sister's baby shower had a ladybug theme, my mom baked delicious ladybug cookies. She put the cookies in individual cellophane bags and affixed the tags to the back using double-sided tape. (Unfortunately, I can only find a photo of the front of the cookies, so you can't see the tags. But you can see one of them in the centerpiece photo below.) You could print the tags out on label paper that has a sticky back, and just stick these to whatever you want. But, the double-sided tape gave the tags a bit of a 3-D appearance, which looked great.
I created some simple ones to use as favor tags for my cousin's baby shower. Jars of honey were used as the favor, so my mom punched small holes in the tags and tied them around the jars.
At the ladybug baby shower, we hot glued some of the circle tags to skewers and placed them in the centerpieces. The tags were created by Sunday Girls Designs. They have a shop on Etsy, and were excellent to work with!
And just because I think she looks so cute, here's a photo of Charlotte at that baby shower. What a little lady! Note the ladybug dress and matching headband. My super-talented mom made those!
Here are the Halloween circle tags I created, just for you! You will need sturdy white card stock, and a 2-inch circle or scalloped punch. (Full disclosure: when I first started to use tags, I didn't have the circle punch. I used a compass to trace circles around them and cut them out by hand. Invest in a circle punch! It is SOOO much easier!)
1. Follow the link (below) to print them out.
2. Cut them into strips.
3. Center your punch to cut them out.
Feel free to download and print, and use them however you wish! I uploaded them to a site called Scribd. You *may* need to create a login in order to download them...I'm not sure! If you do use them, PLEASE send me a photo that I can share on my blog! (Leave a comment, and I'll send you my email if you don't have it!)
