OK, these Stamped Gift Tags will be my last post before Thanksgiving. Because there is family at my house and I’ve barely begun the cooking of the food. 6 adults, 4 kids under 4 years old, 2 dogs. Let’s just say, it’s lively here!
I bought a whole bunch of alphabet stamps way back in the day, and they’re organized pretty well right now in my super duper card catalog storage. But as much as I love the look of well organized drawers (insert underwear joke here), what’s the use of having them if I don’t use them?
For these tags, I just stamped a word on, punched a shape out, and put a piece of cardstock behind the punched shape. I actually punched a circle out of the cardstock so it looks decent from the back too; that way I didn’t need to use another tag to cover the back. You know, KISS – keep it simple silly.
These tags can be altered for all sorts of occasions. I mean, that LOVE one could just as easily be used for Valentine’s day! It would all depend on the type of paper punch that you have. I did have to keep my words short since my stamps were pretty big. And I can only stamp so many letters before I lose concentration and the results get all wonky. Short attention span, I suppose.
Alright, I’m off! To all my dear readers, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy this precious time with your family and friends, and if you’re hosting the big meal, try not to lose your sanity! 🙂
