I Just Can’t Do It!

TAB Accessory Pack-Can't Recommend

I just can’t recommend the Tag-A-Bag Accessory Pack (in photo) that’s one of the Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!® I just can’t do it! You deserve better! That’s why I haven’t linked to it.

The Accessory Pack has tags you punch out from stiff paper, not card stock. They are flimsy and not worth it, even at the sale price. The Tea Lace Paper Doilies (129399) and Linen Thread (104199) are the same as in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog, only the gold paper clips and Calypso Coral adhesive strips aren’t there. I haven’t found the adhesive strips useful at all. The length is wrong for the Tag-A-Bag Gift Bags and Boxes.

You can make cuter tags with the Big Shot™ Die-Cutting Machine (113439) and any number of dies, including Lots of Labels Framelits™ (138281) and Tags & Labels Framelits™ (138282) Dies. There are also Punches, too. I especially like the Triple Banner Punch (138292) and the Scalloped (133324) or Ornate (137416) Tag Topper Punches. Plus, you can make your tags from Card Stock and be assured they’re going to hold up!

I love the Tag-A-Bag Gift Bags (Kraft – 138315; Sketched Dots Translucent – 138316) and Tag-A-Bag Gift Boxes (130927). They’re food safe as well as cute! I just can’t recommend the Tag-A-Bag Accessory Pack. The idea is great, but, as I said, you can do better!
