Turn trinkets and trash into treasures with these pyro tags

In the 2012 issue of Pyrography, Lora S. Irish explains how she turns empty cereal and snack boxes into personalized tags for her scrapbook layouts. The boxes are a free source of lightweight chipboard, which is perfect for pyrography.

In addition to the butterfly pattern in the issue, try these terrific tags for your next papercraft project. Embellish them with scraps of ribbon, beads, jewelry, pins, etc. You could also use the patterns for gift tags, or add an address sticker to the back, laminate the tags, and use them for luggage.
