I know this doesn't look good, but it's just because I got them from the naked lady party and the tags were still on. Sometimes the clerk misses one and you don't want to go all the way back to the store.
If the tag has ink inside, I read that freezing it first makes it possible to break it without a mess. If there's no ink, it's much easier.
Using a small flathead screwdriver, gently wedge into the space under the tag.
Keep wedging on all sides of the tag to loosen it from the fabric.
Repeat this on the other end of the tag (the small side).
When the pin becomes more exposed, the edges will weaken and eventually break the pin holding the tag together.
This was a lot easier than it looks- just be prepared if there's ink inside and don't do this over a white couch.
