    I really want to make "gracias" tags like the one in the attached thread but I have no idea how to. I am not very crafty but I am trying to learn. Could someone please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks!

      next time you should probably reply to the thread or pm that actual bride instead of making a new thread for this. however, it looks pretty straight forward. from what i can tell, they printed gracias onto some kind of white paper (probably a cardstock), cut it into diamonds, and then glued it onto a green cardstock for a backing. then just punch a hole in it and use a ribbon. not complicated. you could also google something like hangtag template to get the word doc template to make cutting the diamonds easier.

        Hi. I got a template for a similar shaped tag from another bride from the forum (I honestly forgot who it was so I'm sorry that I'm not able to give her credit for it). I will attach it for you. Although it is not exactly like the one in the picture, I'm sure you'll be able to customize it to whatever you'd like it to have. Hope it helps!

          Sorry, I'm having trouble attaching the file. I'll figure it out and post shortly.

            I posted an OOT bag tag template that was diamond shaped. You could probably use the outlines.

              I made similar tags for packages in my OOT bag. I used the print shop program, and used one of the label templates. After making several adjust and printing (in grayscale) several times I was able to get them where I wanted them. I used a slicer to cut the tags and then stuck them on to their backing and cut them again. First into strips then into diamonds/squares.

                  If you end up in a jam and just don't feel like making them yourself, I used Sticker Doodles on Etsy for my "Gracias" tags. Instead of purchasing their tags (which were more expensive) I purchased a sheet of 20 stickers (it was $6 for every 20 and shipping was only $2) and then my FMIL put those stickers on cardstock and cut them out. It was worth it for me at least.
                  I also got tags that said "Thanks for shaking up our party!" that have maracas on them and I'm going to tie them on the maracas we are giving for favors.

                  katrina is correct. instead of making a new thread about the tags you posted it would have been better to have posted in the original thread. you may want to view the "posting and you" video as well as the forum FAQ in my siggy to help navigate the forum better.
