Handmade Tag – Stampin’ Up! Tutorial #612

Hey There,

I have been busy of late making quilted coasters for my farmer’s market stand.   They needed a special tag.   You know you just don’t put this much effort into making something and then not package them well.   So, I’ve got a little tag project tutorial for you today.

To make the tags I used the brand new and exciting magnetic platform for the Big Shot Machine.  It makes using the framelits a snap because it keeps your framelits from shifting on you.  Brilliant product! Also used the new Chalk Talk framelits.   Super awesome product to make all sorts of tags.

The complete tutorial for the tag is below.  You can check out my previous tutorial on making quilted coasters by CLICKING HERE.



Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Everything Eleanor (item #124164) and Creatively Yours (item #122612)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Old Olive and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Big Shot Machine, Magnetic Platform (item # 130658), sponge, Chalk Talk Framelits (item #129983)


Using the Big Shot machine with the new Magnetic Platform and Chalk Talk Framelits cut out my tags using Whisper White card stock.


See the great pieces that come in the Chalk talk framelits.  You get all the little pieces that make very professional looking holes for your ribbon etc and tag shapes.   This set will get lots of use here in my craft space.  I can see using the hole pieces with my other framelits that I have in my arsenal.

After cutting my tag, swiped the Soft Sky ink pad across the top of the tag.

Swiped the Pear Pizzazz ink pad across the bottom of the tag.

Stamped the flourish from the Everything Eleanor set using Old Olive ink.

Stamped the bird from the Everything Eleanor set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the Handmade stamp from the Creatively Yours set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Sponged a bit of Old Olive ink at the bottom of the tag using a pouncing motion.

Here are my finished coaster packs.  I added the tag to them using twine.


May your day be super special.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

    Wow! Thank you. I learned something new about the Chalk Talk Framelits that weren’t clear from the catalog. Now I know what those little pieces are — tag holes! I love, love, love what you did with SU fabric. The coasters are gorgeous. I will go back to your tutorial for them; great Christmas gifts for my stamping club members. Nancy B from New Richmond, OH

  2. Love these Michelle! Just out of curiosity – how much is a set of coasters? They’re super cute. Thanks for sharing – now you have me wanting to break out my sewing machine…lol! 🙂

  3. Hi Ingrid, I sell them for $10 for a set of 6. 🙂 They do make good gifts indeed!
