4. Insert the already punched tag shape into the smaller opening of the Tag Maker punch. This punch comes with a built-in hole punch, so you don't need to bring out any extra hole punches. The hole is centered automatically for you, helping to create perfect tags every time.

5. Use the Holiday Stamps to add thoughtful sentiments to the tags. Acrylic stamps are great because you can arrange them in any design you want, and it's easy to see exactly where you are stamping.

6. Use the Amplify® Mixed Media Shears to cut out circles from patterned papers. Don't hesitate to cut multiple layers of paper with the shears because they are designed to cut through thick materials and multiple layers of cardstock.
