Gift tags

For my Christmas gifts this year I decided to make custom tags. I’ve always just used the sticker tags that you can buy anywhere but I wanted to do something a little more original this year. After looking at the wrapping paper we had I decided to go with a burlap tag that I would paint on.

I used wooden letters that I found at hobby lobby and dipped them into red paint. Then I used them as stamps on the pieces of burlap I had cut. I only used the first initial of the gift recipient on each tag because I thought it would look cleaner than trying to stamp the whole name. It worked out nicely since I didn’t have anyone with the same first initial.

Here’s a look at the finished product.

I’m already thinking of ways to make them look better next year, but you’ll have to wait a while to see.
