I got this on sale for $16 and change. It comes with tags which was nice. It had a little learning curve when it comes to making the tags perfectly. I only sacraficed two. I followed the xeroxed (why it did not have more formal looking set of) directions exactly. However, cutting the paper to tag must be very precise and it may take multiple squeezes (which really isn't a big deal) to seal the tag tight. I used cheap copy paper and it came out pretty good while experimenting, so I am looking forward to using thicker scrapbook paper. They really look great adding an awesome embellishment to any page. I think it was worth the money. Suggestion: if you have the extra money and want to make it easier on yourself (I am way too cheap) they make a punch so that you do not have to trace and cut the paper out to make the tags, it is also made by Making Memories.
I purchased this product right after Thanksgiving and starting using it right away - on my Christmas presents! I have always enjoyed putting lots of time and effort in wrapping my Christmas presents, right down to the personalized tags. This year they were the cutest tags - EVER! They did not take any extra time or effort than the tags I had made the previous years.
I sat down one night and made lots of the tags out of different wrapping paper, then when I was ready to put the tags on the presents I just hole-punched them, wrote to and
from on them and put the tags on the presents - they looked wonderful and I got lots of compliments on them. Everyone appreciates seeing their name on something that looks like you went to a lot of effort preparing.
The Tag Maker is very easy to use and I would highly recommend it!
I purchased the tag maker because I love tags. iI thought I would use more rimmed tags with it. Loving the look of the rim yet I wanted my tags to coordinate or be like I needed. This tool gives you templates to use to cut your papers/cardstock. It is easy to place the paper in the rim and then insect it in the Tag maker and with little pressure you have a professional looking tag. I've noticed I can use patterened papers and it strengthens them like cardstock. I could not be more please with a tool. I entered with doubts and came out a believer. I wouldn't trade it! The templates even take the mystery out of makeing your own and you end up with a professional product, so easy and you did it!
I've owned this for over a year and I still find a use for my tag maker & always keep my eyes out for different colors or styles of rims as you finally have the ability to create the perfect tag for any Scrapbook layout, card, or craft project as you can insert any type of paper or other medium that you want! You can even take it a step further and pain the rims or sand them down for an antique look. The possibilities are endless and definately a great buy!
This is fantastic. I have had it for over a year now and still love it!! It is nice to use for several projects other than scrapbooking! My husabnd was in Iraq for my son's first Christmas so I sent him a mini tree and used photos of my son to make little tag ornaments. It turned out so lovely!! I do agree with another review that sometimes the metal doesn't close completely, so I just appllied a bit more pressure slowly to ensure a tight fit!!
