Oversized Birthday Tag

My 5-year-old niece loves pigs (and was born in the year of the pig), so I had to incorporate one on her birthday tag.  Since this was going on a large plain kraft gift bag, I made my tag large too, cutting it at 7" from the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge.

This adorable pig is cut from the Cricut Craft Room Barnyard Babies cartridge at 3 1/2".  Again, I'm not actually using Cricut Craft Room; all of the exclusive cartridges can be used on your Gypsy as well.  The present is cut at 2" from the Sweet Treats cartridge, and the party hat is also cut at 2", from Doodlecharms.

For my little pennant, I die cut the shape and used a sentiment from My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Greetings.  Hopefully my niece will like her little pig tag!

Products used for this tag:


  1. Katie ~ Oh your tag turned out so CUTE! LOVE that ADORABLE pig! How CUTE and CLEVER to have the pig holding the Teeny Tag die with his tail! Cracked me up! I see you are using the new freebies very well! She will adore it just like she adores you!!!

  2. Super fun!! She will love it! The greeting on a tooth pick is too clever!!

  3. Very cute, I'm sure you're niece will love the tag. I love how you matched the top of the tag with the paper on the present and the shadow for the tiny tag -- and, that special Katie touch -- using the pig's tail to "hold" the tiny tag. You always put so much thought and design into all of your projects. TFS!

  4. How silly cute is that tag!!! LOVE it!!! Too fun!

  5. this is just adorable katie! it reminds me of the geico pig, saying "wheeeee" :)
