I've been moving pretty slowly these past couple days because of this annoying cold I caught, but one thing has been bringing a smile to my face and that's making my own little tags, etc. for packaging things for my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/ColorMeFun. I designed a logo myself on photoshop and bought a custom stamp from JLMould using the design I made. It should come any day now and I can't wait to stamp all over my boxes (bought at Uline.com) and handmade tags!
I modified my little logo and printed it (on my computer printer!) on scrap-booking card stock to make backs for my fabric covered button bobby pins.

I also bought a label shape die-cut punch on sale from the craft store and punched a bunch of tags from scrap-booking paper. I've also set aside some boxes from Indian food packages that I'm going to re-purpose into tags. The size of the custom stamp is the size of the tag so I will be able to stamp my blank tags with my logo in any color ink I want.
For other items like bracelets and headbands that don't fit on a little backing like the bobbies I made long tags that I can staple around the item. I printed the long tags on craft paper and scrap-book paper, then I cut out and cut the edges with special scissors.
