Need a graduation or end of the school year party favor? You can use tape to easily create personalized graduation tags and attach to your favorite candy.
We used UGlu® to assemble the tags!
1. Create Gift Tags
I used my personal desktop die-cutting machine and was able to size and cut my own foldable gift tags out of cardstock. They are approximately 3 inches wide by 5 inches long (before you fold). I added a ribbon to the top through the opening in paper and tied into a bow.
2. Print your message
I simply designed the printable on my computer and printed out the labels on a lighter color of cardstock. They are approximately 1.5 inch circles when cut out. I was able to print 12 per page and with patience just cut out the circles by hand. You can also use your personal desktop die-cutting machine for this step as well.
3. Assemble the parts with UGlu®
Apply a wide UGlu® 1”x3” Strip to the inside of your tag. The inside will serve a double purpose: it will hold your candy in place as well as securely seal your tag shut. I used one strip of the wide 1”x3” UGlu® per candy tag. I cut the UGlu® strip to fit my tag (you don’t want excess hanging off the edge) and used that extra slice of UGlu® for the front of tag to turn my cardstock labels into a sticker.
UGlu® 1”x3” Strips: Can’t say enough about you! Everyone needs UGlu®! I love that the DIY Pack has a variety of sizes to play with. The 1”x3” strips are quick, easy to use and they sealed these gift tags in seconds! I didn’t have to deal with any messy glue or wait for dry time.

Throughout your personal and professional life you’ll be confronted with a number of issues or obstacles that will challenge you and if you’re not careful, they’ll consume you to the point where you no longer feel you can function without them invading your every thought. Far too often we allow the everyday obstacles that life puts in our way to become larger and more daunting then they actually are. They steal sleep away from us at night, they rob us of our personal time with family & friends, and the take away our productivity at work. One of the more effective tools for limiting the negative impact that everyday issues can present is being able to master distinctions, the subtle yet important differences that often get blurred or overlooked when confronted by difficult or uncomfortable situations.

When it comes to pressure sensitive adhesive tapes most of the time you think of rolls of tape, after all, everyone has used a roll of tape. When it comes to actually applying tape, however, most people use it in strips or in pieces, either to help mask a surface, close a box, or hold something in place. Although roll goods are certainly the easiest and most convenient way to buy and sell tape, when it comes to actually using the product, roll goods aren’t always the easiest or most efficient way to go. That’s where the specialty die-cutting services at Pro Tapes® comes into play.
