Vintage Finding Tags

Here’s a quick and sweet diy for you, using simple vintage and found objects, some you may have around your house! I thought this would be a fun and affordable thing to make. Items like the tags and paper clips come in a packs of 100 or so for less than $10. So you’re really not spending a lot to make these. So here we go!

Here’s what you’ll need:
- Manila Tags, I used 4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ but you can go slightly larger or smaller.
- Jute Twine
- Assorted patterned paper
- Library date stamp (and ink choice of your color)
- Gold paper clips
- Vintage charm findings (found on etsy or ebay)
- Small lace crochet doilies (lot found on ebay)
- “save the date” letter stamp (via martha stewart stamp kit)

Cut the doily in half place onto tag, leaving some extra room on the side to trim. Sew onto right side of the manila tag.

Cut excess of the doily off so you have a nice straight edge.

Stamp your date onto your patterned paper. Make sure the background isn’t too busy so you can see the date, and choose an ink color that will show up.

Cut out the paper with the date stamp and paper clip onto tag. Stamp your “save the date” onto the tag.

Take your twine and tie around your tag and string charm onto the twine. Tie in knot.

You’re all done! You can switch up placement of stamps and the charms on your tags for a real one-of-a-kind feel.

You can send these off or give them to friends and family you see. Place them in a kraft or glassine bag and they’re ready to go! (bags available at nice package) To send in the mail, purchase some kraft envelopes and send them off!

    jillian, amanda, and kristina: from the bottom of my heart – thank you so much for allowing me to guest post on your beautiful blog this week! :) it was such an honor and i can’t wait to share my wedding with you! xo.

  8. Lovely! Something I would keep forever :)

  9. Simple and beautiful. Maybe I will try modify this idea for my graduation party that is coming up soon. Thanks for the idea.

  10. I love this! For my wedding I used lots of luggage tags and had the bike theme! These would have been perfect! I’m sure the next bride will find these perfect for their day!

  11. These are fantastic! I think my heart would melt if I received one of these little treasures in the mail.

  12. oh i love this! it’s so pretty, and so lasy!! so great!!

  13. i love it so so much

  14. how wonderful!!! if I recieved a save the date like this i would feel so special, knowing how much time and effort went into making it.

  15. Practical and gorgeous at the same time. Love it.

  16. these are so original and absolutely darling!

    ohh if I only had the patience :)

  17. The doilies you used are not crocheted, they’re tatted. Tatting is a fiber art/craft that used to be quite popular but has practically disappeared.

    A while back I inherited my grandmother’s silver tatting shuttle and decided to figure out how to do it. And it did, and what I learned is that tatting looks a bit like crochet but takes about ten times as long.

    The items you made are incredibly cute, but I’m not sure cutting up labor-intensive heirlooms is my favorite method of constructing Save the Dates.

  18. Love this post! Thanks for the great DIY idea….Great for many occasions.

  19. oh wow Im so saving these for whenever the day comes!!

  20. There are AWESOME! Where do you put the couple’s name that you’re saving the date for though?

  21. LOVE the vintagey feel of these save the date tags!!! Super cool!

  22. This is such a wonderful tutorial, I am saving it in my bookmarks for when occasion arises! :) Beauuutiful.

  23. i did this for my wedding they were a big hit and very unique thanks!

  24. Charming and so creative! Guests are sure to like this!

  25. I love this idea. I love the simplicity and the cute little charms. Perfect for DIY!

  26. Very very sweet… but as a tatter myself, the idea of scissors near those doilies does make me a little nervous!

  27. Valentines sent by schoolchildren have declined so…and I see the beauty and energy of Valentines long ago have travelled to here. Lovely.

  28. These are beyond adorable. Such amazing talent. Love it.

  29. this is SO adorable! it would be great, on features like these, to have a cost detail/breakdown feature as well!

  30. wow! i love these! we are using these to tie around our mason jars for table numbers- but i like the sprucing them up a bit.

    i do like the library theme elements in it as well. i’m planning on using old fashioned library due date cards for our place cards! with our wedding date stamped in the due date.
    i may also end up using them for rehearsal dinner invites too!

  31. wow — these are so lovely, thoughtful & unique! fabulous!!

  32. these save the dates look fantastic! so pretty.

  33. I did a similar post on my blog! I chose to use coasters from bars/hotels/cafes and use them for gift tags. They are always so nicely made and printed on nice thick paper why not reuse and recycle right? I think it is also a conversation started when you give the gift or card right!
    By the way I love your blog!

  34. These are fantastic! Love the vintage feel and how charming they are – great work.

  35. Gorgeous…

  44. Have you heard whatever they constructed in that location last month? Did you look at the digital photography? You must schedule the next a vacation in Manila, it is really advisable. Thank you so much. For anybody who is continue to thinking about why the most beneficial location across the globe is Manila, perhaps consider this.

  46. The tags are pretty, but I have to agree…cutting up the tatted doilies makes my heart ache a bit. Those things involve a lot of hand labor, and they aren’t very common anymore.

  47. the multi channel audio systems like dolby will surely make your home theater sounds super great;

  48. beautiful wedding invitations
