Shipping Tags

Its back to school time and although I am not returning to school I love this time of year.  My favorite thing about back to school time is shopping for school supplies.  I guess that is why I am such a fan of paper crafting.

I was poking around at Staples the other day and noticed the shipping labels. There are 100 in a package for $5.85. I bought a pack to experiment. 

Labels are very popular in card making right now, but rather than having to cut my own from card stock, I decided to these a try.

Well, I am having a grand time with these tags.  Here is a Thank You card I made with one of the tags.  The tags measure 4 3/4 x 2 3/8.  I snipped a bit off the bottom for this card.

Postage Due from Stampin' Up! is the image, stamped in SU Crumb Cake and the card stock is SU Soft Suede.  The Thank you is stamped in Midnight Muse. The border design is the Framed Tulips embossing folder. Add some linen thread and an Antique Brad and you are good to go!

Now for a Christmas design.
