Easy: On Trend Neon Glitter Tags

March 12, 2014

Easy DIY Neon Glitter Tags | Damask Love Easy DIY Neon Glitter Tags | Damask LoveUse glitter. Ask  questions later. Cardinal rule of crafting.

Ever since I posted this project, glitter has been a staple around here. I blame Martha Stewart. Well, not the actual Martha but you know…her company. Those people pump out glitter varieties like the Duggars pump out children…and I’m not one bit mad at em.

Neon tags are pretty popular right now. At least I think they are. Let’s pretend they are – since that would make today’s project a whole lot more relevant. I love the look of these simple tags – but let’s be honest – everything immediately become a grillion times more wonderful when glitter is involved. So that’s what we’re gonna do.  Just add glitter.

A note about the “hole puncher” : Being the seasoned crafter that I am, my hole puncher looks a bit like a torture device. In fact, it’s the world’s most awesome hole punching tool ever known to man: The Crop-a-dile. It punches through paper, wood, tin, chipboard…you get the idea. It also sets eyelets, snaps and the like. See, what I mean. Awesome. And so very necessary.

At this point, you can use these tags in whatever way your heart desires. Of course, this may just include staring at them for a few hours.   When the staring is done, go ahead and dress up a simple gift package with your creation.Easy DIY Neon Glitter Tags | Damask Love

  1. This girl is on firrreeeee!!!!! Seriously, Amber, you’re on fire with this latest post. I love the tag and the contrasting white ‘enjoy’ word. Truly inspirational! Hope to make this soon but first a stop to Michael’s for some neon glitter. 😉

  2. I need that glitter. I’m not even the biggest fan of neon but those glitter colours are fantastic! I also really need to get a crop-a-dile…

  3. I just have the little “X” Xyron but I’ll give this a try. I have a friend that loves glitter as much as you do.

  4. I used to have one on these Xyron machines – way, way back – like 2000 or something like that. Have always resisted the need to replace it (not sure what happened to it) – UNTIL Now – LOL

    LOVE your glittery tags, Amber 🙂

  5. LOVE these tags!!! Since I am stuck in the 80’s I love neon and now I definitely have to dig out my Xyron and figure out what replacement cartridge to get!!!

  6. I must thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog.
    I am hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.
    In fact, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to
