Quick Gift Tags From All Those Paper Scraps!

I've been making a lot of handmade paper over the last few months as an Arnold Grummer Design Team member. I could never bring myself to throw out my leftover handmade paper scraps from all those wonderful projects, so I decided to turn them into gift tags!

Here's what you'll need to make your own lovely gift tags:

  • Scraps from your beautiful handmade paper
  • Scissor with decorative edge - I got mine at Hobby Lobby
  • "To/From" stamp - Hobby Lobby again : )
  • Ink pads
  • Double sided tape
  • Metallic markers, colored gel pens etc.
Grab your decorative edge scissors and trim some of your handmade paper scraps to just a bit bigger than your stamp. Then trim some scraps just a bit bigger than the ones you just cut. I used a scissor that gives the appearance of a deckle edge once the paper is cut.

Ink your stamp.

And stamp your gift tag.

Now use double sided tape, or a glue stick on the back of the gift tag you stamped, and stick it to the bigger paper scrap you cut. 

And just like that, you've got gorgeous gift tags made from handmade paper scraps.
