It’s time for another installment of DIY Sunday: one of the more fun blog posts to write and make because it means it’s time to get creative! This week, you’ll be learning how to make craft tape gift tags. They can be used at any time of the year, for any event, and with any item. Clip it on to a box, or a paper bag, and watch your wrapping rise to the occasion.
What’s great about these, is that they can be personalized. Depending on the stamp you choose to use, they can spell out the recipient’s name or just say thank you (loot bag tags, right?). Not to mention, there are so many options of tape! So take out your sharpest scissors and ink pad, and start making yours. Here are all the secrets:
Patterned Crafting/Scrapbooking Tape
Stock paper, beige or ivory
Mini coloured clothespins
Ink pad, black
1. Find the template of a tag you like online, and print it. Cut it out, and trace its outline onto the stock paper that you have chosen.
2. Cut that out as well using your scissors.
3.Measure a piece of tape that covers the bottom of the tag from end to end, and rip it so that it is a little longer. Line it up perfectly parallel to the edge of the tag and stick it on, wrapping the edges around to the back.
4. Attach the mini clothespin to the tag, and you can clip it on to bags, ribbons, boxes, and cards!
With those four steps, you’re set to start gifting! What was the nicest wrapping you’ve ever received? Leave your thoughts in the comment section or tweet @ThePoshDish.
