$20 Tuesday . . . Tag, You’re It!

Join us every Tuesday during the month of August for our $20 Tuesdays. We’ll explore some great options that you can create for $20 or under! These prices are based on the US price and do not include shipping and handling or tax.

I can’t help but feel excited during this time of year! Although the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter, autumn ushers in some wonderful things: changing leaves, the holiday season . . . and of course, college football!

For today’s $20 Tuesday, I thought I would take the opportunity to get ahead of the game—something I rarely do! Let me rewind just a little. As I was contemplating my next $20 Tuesday, I found myself flipping through the holiday catalog trying to mentally add things up in my head—when something caught my eye; as a matter of fact, I had to do a double take when I saw the price. It was the Stamp a Tag Kit.

Can I tell you how awesome this little thing is? All I could think of was giving this kit as a gift to a neighbor! Now it would have to be a very special neighbor as I don’t spend $11.00 on all my neighbor gifts, but I loved the fact that this little kit is gift-ready. I was also very excited to see ink in the kit. Can I tell you how hard I have to look to find an under $20 project with no ink? But now I have Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler! Plus, it came with enough gear to make 24 tags; that means I have a nice little adornment for presents or gifts for about 45 cents each!

Now the Stamp a Tag kit is cool in and of itself, but do you know what is even cooler? Adding the Naughty and Nice This and That Rotary Stamp! (Oh yes . . . I did!)

This just all of a sudden took my two stamp set tag kit to a 13 stamp set (without adding the number side of the rotary stamp)! So if you are keeping track, we are at:

$ 10.95 for the Stamp a Tag Kit
$ 5.95 for the Naughty and Nice This and That Rotary Stamp

Grand Total
$16.90

If you really want to add to your set, you could throw in the Pretty Presents Designer Tags for $2.50 and really bring your price per tag down, but I didn’t. FYI—if you did add that into your order, it would put you at $19.40. Just made it! ;-)

Enough talk—here is what you really wanted to see . . . the tags that I made with my custom kit. My first two tags use stamps from the Stamp a Tag Kit.

While those are fun, I couldn’t stop there.

I am not sure how many of you have an Elf on the Shelf, but I thought that our elf (Chippy) may need to bring notes back from Santa every now and again—so I made him some custom tags. Enter the rotary stamp!

Once I did that, well . . . my imagination just took over. Using a little bit of masking, I was able to make the stamps below.

I continued to find new uses for the rotary stamp as I went along. Here are a few more samples:

There you have it! I made 11 of my 24 tags in just a few minutes . . . and I love how they turned out!

What do you think? How might you use the Stamp a Tag Kit this year? Let us know below. 

We hope you have enjoyed our $20 Tuesdays!  Let us know in the comments section if you would like to see more of these in the future!

    Yes! I'd like to see more of these posts in the future! Ordered up my Paper Pumpkin deal today because of last week's post, while I anxiously waited to see what this week would bring.
