A Pink Dragonfly Tag

Let this pink dragonfly tag brings cheer to another young child who's feeling under the weather.

Put within it a touch of spring with the pink colour theme.  What a surprise she will receive when she opens the envelope and find this pink tag in it; especially with the cute dragonfly. Can be done together with your daughter whose friend is not feeling too well. Maybe this will help cheer her up.


This was a tag for a little Chinese girl. The Chinese character   is handwritten with a fine black marker and it means spring.

Glitter is a little girl's best friend, right? So you can add lots of glitter glue to represent the movement of the dragonfly if you like. I leave mine without the glitters because I had some trouble hunting for my glitter glue :-(

But it's ok :-) It's pink and though it does not blinks, it's sweet.

Tag Making Supplies :

Below are the colourful dragonflies I have in my toolbox of card making supplies for kids. I have quite a few of these with matching Chinese strings; baby blue, sweet pink, light yellow and lilac.

So sweet!

Have been wondering what to do with them and today decided to make a spring tag for a little girl.
