Scrapbook tags are a versatile embellishment that works with any layout as they can be designed and decorated to suit your page. You can use large scrapbooking tags as a photo mat and smaller ones can be used with stickers to showcase your title. Me? I love decorating them in the theme of my page as an embellishment.
Although scrapbook tags are commonly rectangle-shaped with an eyelet at one end, they also look great as other shapes such as squares, circles, ovals, hearts, stars, etc. The size of a scrapbook tag is also completely up to you. Large ones make a great background for photos and journaling, and tiny little ones can even be made into a strip of bunting or used as a border.
Although you can purchase pre-made blank tags in uniform shapes, making your own scrapbooking tags as a project DIY scrapbook embellishment ideas is a fantastic way to get creative, save money and use up your leftover cardstock and paper. Scrapbooking tags can be hand-drawn and cut, created with a tag-shaped paper punch, or even cut with a die-cut machine.

To show you just how easy it is to make your own scrapbook tags, here are five tag ideas that you can incorporate into your own DIY scrapbooking tags using your leftover cardstock and paper.
Using torn strips of paper is a great way to use up your scrap paper and add interest to your scrapbook tags. You can see in the photograph below that I have used two different patterns of torn paper as the background with three simple butterfly cutouts as a feature.
You will need:
➤Plain colored cardstock for the base
➤Butterfly stamps and ink
➤Pencil and ruler
➤Craft knife or scissors
➤Scrap pieces of patterned paper
Start by creating your tag from your cardstock base. As you can see from the image below, I simply hand drew mine using a ruler and pencil. Make use of any spare bit of cardstock to stamp your three butterflies and using a pair of scissors or a craft knife, cut out the tag and three butterflies.
Next, choose some patterned paper scraps and tear them into uneven strips. Finally, lay all of your elements on the page and when you are happy with the layout, glue them down with your glue stick to finish off your scrapbook tag.
