My friend, Laura Kelly, recently came out with a new line in partnership with Therm O Web and I can’t wait for you to see how easy her products are to use. Back to school is right around the corner (and at the front door in some cases) so I wanted to create a simple gift tag using some fun, new materials! You can attach this tag to pretty much anything that needs a little extra cuteness added to it!
Here’s what you’ll need to create these easy foiled gift tags:
- Kindness On Purpose stamp set
- Clear stamp blocks
- Black ink pad
- Laura Kelly Toner Sheets (I used Spotty Dots)
- Laura Kelly Foil Transfer Sheets (I used Wagon Red and Denim Jeans Blue)
- Personal Laminator (This is the one I have)
- Adhesive tape runner
- White cardstock or White unlined index cards
- Paper trimmer
- Hole punch
- Baker’s twine
- Crop-o-Dile Corner Chomper (optional)
How to Make Foiled Gift Tags
First, grab a toner sheet and a foil transfer sheet. Run it through your laminator, following the instructions on the back of the package.
Then, cut your cardstock into the size tag you want using a paper trimmer. I made each of mine 2″ x 2″. (One reason I did this was because it made centering the stamp block on each tag so easy.)
Next, you need to get your stamp block, stamp and ink ready. This is one of the only times I’ve used stamps and I learned a neat trick for getting the stamp placed where I wanted it. Before sticking the stamp to the block, I placed it on the tag where I wanted it. Then I centered the block on top of the stamp and pressed down. This ensured that my stamp would end up in the same place every time.
After you’ve stamped your tags, use the adhesive runner to put some adhesive where you want the foiled paper to go on top of the tag. Then line the edge of the tag up with the edge of the foiled paper and press the two together firmly. (I covered a little more than half of my tag with the foiled paper.) Then I flipped the whole thing over and used scissors to trim it to size. Repeat this process for the rest of your tags.
At this point, you can go one of two directions:
- Punch a hole in the corner of the tags and attach the tag to your goodie.
- Round the corners of the tags (using the Crop-o-Dile Corner Chomper), then punch a hole and attach the tag to your goodie.
You can see the side by side difference between the two options below.
Whichever option you choose to go with, you will be left with some cute foiled gift tags!
I decided to attach a few tags to some treats and goodies for my kids to take to school to give to their teachers. Because heaven knows their teachers are going to need some extra love and kindness during that first week of school. *wink*
