3 ways to add custom gift tags or wrapping paper
Skill Level: Beginner
Time Needed: 1 – 2 hours
CUSTOM STAMPED WRAPPING PAPER
How to create a personalized stamp from an eraser.
● Carving tools
Step One. Trace your block name BACKWARDS using a pen directly onto the eraser.
Step Two. Using the carving tools, carefully carve around your sketched name.
Step Three. Press the stamp bottom firmly onto the ink pad and stamp directly onto craft paper or other wrapping paper.
Simply slip a photo of your loved one underneath the ribbon in lieu of a tag. With the world being so digitally photo oriented now, this is like a present on top of a present.
CUSTOM NAME TAG
Using cardstock, cut out their name for a truly personalized name tag.
● String / Ribbon
Step One. Trace your block name directly onto the cardstock.
Step Two. Cut around using scissors. If needed, use a pair of smaller scissors to get inside the letters to cut out the centers. (A silhouette cameo also works great for this kind of project!)
Step Three. Punch a hole through one side of the name, and slip string or ribbon through to make the tag.
And there you have it! Three different ways to personalize your gifts this Christmas.
