I'm still really good at breaking blades on my scroll saw, but I actually managed to cut quite a few wooden tags recently before two or three blades couldn't take it anymore. A couple of weeks ago, we had a gorgeous weather day that I spent cutting tags (and changing blades). I couldn't just stop with the cuts, though . . . I sanded all of the tags and then stained them so they'd be ready for some Chalkology Paste. They turned out cute, huh? I love that these tags will be a cute decoration on a gift and will become an ornament by the recipient.

The glittered ornament on the back of some tags turned out soooooooo pretty! Have a closer look:
I used Shimmer Silver Couture Ink to transfer the ornament image onto the back of the wooden ornament and, while the ink was still wet, I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter onto it. Once the ink had dried, I used a fine bristle brush to whisk away the stray glitter.
Images from the following Chalk Couture Chalk Transfers were used to decorate the tags:
Chalkology Paste Colors that I used include: Candy Apple, Garden Herb, Buttermilk, and Bright White.
I don't yet have a photo of a tag hanging from a gift bag or tied onto a wrapped box, but here is one of the tags dressed up with ribbon:
