Mother's Day is just around the corner!  It's a great day to remember not just our own mothers, but the women in our lives that inspire us to be better moms, daughters, sisters and wives.  So if you have a few special gifts to share this Mother's Day,  here is a simple, sturdy tag you can quickly make to add a personal touch to any gift!

Supplies:
Kraft Chipboard
Patterned paper
Ribbon
Versamark ink and embossing powder
Sentiment stamp
Adhesive
Corner rounder punch and hole punch
Steps:
Cut your tag to the size you wish from the Kraft chipboard.  I love the thickness of this and how sturdy it is, yet I am still able to cut it on my standard paper trimmer.  Cut the patterned paper piece just as wide, but not as long as the chipboard base.
Stamp the greeting in versamark ink and quickly cover the wet ink with the embossing powder.

Shake the excess embossing powder off (I put it right back in the container for next time) and then process it with the heat gun.  Keep the heat moving across the stamped image until all the powder turns evenly glossy.

To finish the tag, I just attached some stitched ribbon.  It meets at the back of the tag and is held with some red sticky tag.  I punched a hole from my patterned paper to make a reinforced hole.  Finally, I looped through some bakers twine and matching copper cording I had in my stash.
