AlphabeThursday - G is for Gift Tag


I started my 2013 art journal this week with gift tags on my mind.  What different ways could I use my new gift tag stamp?



 I tried cutting the stamp out, centered inside my largest round hole punch.  That didn’t work.  I took my (only) pair of scissors and cut the stamp out, but came to the realization that here was another reason why I needed some really small scissors (to get into the tiny corners).


I was lucky enough to get a pair of pinking shears from Mom this past weekend.  But still I need a pair of little scissors.  Let's see if I can do better, cutting out the gift tags.  To be continued...  



Come and visit other Letter G posts at Ms. Jenny's ...off on my tangent...

Interesting to see what you've tried! I like cutting out the tag the best. Could you use the stamp directly on plain wrapping paper, and just leave it "attached" to the gift that way?

Looks like a fun experiment :) I'm sure you'll come up with the perfect option!
And I like your new journaling style too.

What a fun stamp! I look forward to seeing what else you do with it. I have a little pair of scissors for sewing, but I need a small pair for paper, too.

You're having a lot of fun with those little tags! This year, for the first time, I tried making my own tags and I loved what I did - nothing as creative as yours, but it was a start and it was fun.
