Supplies: Plain shipping tags from the office supply store, Rit Dye in Lemon Yellow and whatever crepe paper, ribbon, buttons, or other embellishments you have. I also used my sewing machine and rubber stamps.

First up, dye the tags. I use warm water (the more water the lighter the color) and then I used salad tongs to place the wet tags on paper towels to dry.

Then… use whatever you have to make some creative tags. Don’t overthink it!
