The 15 Minute Fix: Repurposed Gift Tag Place Cards

I don't know about you, but I find the best craft goodies in bargain bins! Whether it's Target or Michaels, my digging always produces something fun.  I am drawn to pretty little tags and labels, and often score double with clearance markdowns in the bargain bins.  I grab them when I see them because they are very handy for crafts.

I used the gold trimmed pink ones for the lamb and other vintage postcard place settings at my spring table.  You can see them all here.  Ready to make your own place cards?

All you need are the tags, letter stickers and small trinkets to embellish them. I used these thrifted porcelain roses I found several months ago--plenty left for future projects!

Here's what I use to attach them.  I love Tacky because it secures but is also removable which is perfect when I want to reuse something in a different way!

Just remove a small portion and stick it where you want to attach your trinket, then press down firmly.  It's can be repositioned easily if needed.

The sweet bunny card is at my breakfast table. I mixed and matched pastel vintage dishes for spring.

  8. Love that sweet bunny! I love glue dots for the same reason. I have tacky on hand for candles, but haven't thought to use it this way. I have one aqua Crinoline ripple plate. Love them! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
