I love tags in all shapes and sizes but until I learned this trick I tended to buy commercial tags because mine looked so home made and uneven. So, here’s how to make your own handcut tags and to cut them perfectly every time.

Cut your basic tag shape – such as a rectangle and then cut an angled piece from one corner. Flip this piece over and adhere face down to the opposite corner using temporary adhesive or simply hold it in position in your hands. Now use it as a cutting template for the second corner – it’s the exact shape you need so it works perfectly every time.
