I dusted off my old Cricut machine that played a large role in my old traditional scrapbooking days. We found a tag that I cut out and scanned in. This is how the tag looked:
After I cut it out on the Cricut, I scanned it into the computer. I wanted to know both the size and shape so that I could create an inside tag with each child's name. Once I brought this tag into Photoshop, I took the magic wand and tapped on the white. It activated all of the white around the tag. I then went to "Select" and "Inverse" to activate only the tag shape. I then created a new layer above the tag in the layers palette and went to "Edit" and "Stroke". I entered a value of 3. This gave my tag a black outside line so that I knew what shape to create the design.
I then created a new document and used my move arrow tool to bring this outline of the shape over to the new document. I made the outline a bit smaller so that when I cut them out, the colors of the original tag could be seen around the edges of the white. I duplicated it a number of times (Command/Control + J) and I was all set to start adding my products.
I decided to use Pattie Knox's cute little Boo Buddies and these tags came together in no time. Here is how they looked on my computer.
Of course I needed to add a back to them.
Quinn helped me stuff the cups and this is how the batch looked when we were all done.
I really like creating things for others and so do my children. I enjoyed using my Cricut again and combining that with the fabulous digital products that are so easy to use. If you are looking for some quick Halloween tags, this is a fun one. Have a great day!
