Scrap Your Stash: 10 Minute Valentine Tags

If you are anything like me, you have hoards of products hiding in your scrap space and plenty that you have and probably have never touched. With CHA looming in the very near future, now would be a great time to pull out that "old" product and put it to use.

I did just that this weekend. Here are two tags I made to tuck into Cody's and Shelby's lunchboxes on Valentines Day.

I used ONLY product I already had on hand and once I had it all picked out, it only took me 10 minutes to complete the tags. Seriously, 10 minutes. The tags themselves I have had in my stash for at least 4 years. Yes, that long. They had belly bands on them and I removed them. I liked them because they already had the red stitching around them. The rub-ons I received in a package from Making Memories at CHA Winter 2009!! I purchased an embellishment package from Creative Charms in the summer of 2010 and that's where I got the 3-d heart embellishment. The stamps were a more recent acquisition...JustRite's Just Because Mini Sentiments. Next I added some crinkled ribbons and tied them off with some We R Memory Keepers twine. See, super fast and super easy! And my kids will LOVE that they get an extra special treat in their lunches.

So, have at it. Go check out your stash and see what you have that you can use up!
