These name tags were intended to be used for a Fourth of July celebration. In reality they could be made in any color and used for almost any occasion. They are very simple and quick to make. Materials Used:
Cardstock in Red, White, and Blue
Ribbons in various colors/patterns
Silver Glitter Pen
Machine Used: KNK 15″ Maxx Air
Cardstocks – Blade=Red cap standard materials blade, Force=50, Speed=100,Passes=1, PIN=25
The three colors of cardstock were cut and layered with the paper glue. The top layer was stamped with ‘patriotic’ rubber stamps and black ink. Instead of stamping the top layer, items such as stars or star bursts could be cut from vinyl and used. The name was cut from white cardstock, embellished with a silver glitter pen, and glued to the top layer. The name could also be cut from vinyl instead of cardstock. A hole punched in the upper left corner provides a place to attach ribbons and a bow.
The longer ribbons can be used to tie the tag to all sorts of things such as a napkin wrapped set of utensils, a drinking glass, a small gift, etc. and serve as place cards. The tags could also be used as worn name tags by attaching a pin to the back.
You could also make some Fourth of July cupcake wrappers from the files that are on Sandy McCauley’s site. You will need to scroll down a bit to find the link. It is a zipped file in several formats and contains other occasion cupcake wrappers in addition to the Fourth of July ones.
