Free Template Saturday #5!

A Tidal Wave of Tags!

[EDIT - These templates are now available again! Email me for details!!]

It's Saturday again, and that can only mean one thing - it's time for a bunch of new, original, FREE templates for you to download!!

Today's templates are one of those enduring essentials to any papercrafter - tags!! They're one of those things that are ALWAYS useful, and why pay out for them, when they can be so simply cut out, AND in the cardstock of your choice?

I've included both single tags and 4-tag concertina versions. The concertina tags are especially useful for accordian tag books, brag books or for those occasions when one tag just isn't enough! Use them on a scrapbook page for hidden journalling or cut them in half to make a tag birthday card - there are just so many ways to use these versatile tag templates! Decorate them with patterned papers, stamp on them, or distress them with sandpaper, ink or paint, or ring the changes by adding eyelets and some stylish ribbon to really make them pop!!

Here are some examples I cut out on the Cricut - there are 8 designs in total.

There are so many ways to use these - why not get the kids to decorate them to make their own birthday or holiday gift tags?

Click on the shapes to see a larger view.

Yes... I forgot to cut out any of the pointy tags... gimme a break, it was in the middle of the night by the time I'd finished posting these! LOLAgain, these templates will be "live" for 1 week. Next Saturday, they will be taken down, and new ones will replace them. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.

These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.


Because there are 8 files, I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the templates out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.

There are 3 versions of each template:
  • A printable version (GIF files) that you can import into a program like Word, then resize, print, cut out and use like any other paper template (these are NOT Word files, so don't use File/Open in Word! Use Insert/Picture to bring them into a Word document).
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply right click on the appropriate button below, and choose "save link..." or "save target..." and save your template!

Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!

I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)
