I’m always looking for new ideas for gift tags. This year I came up with using wooden craft sticks and rubber stamps. I don’t like power tools, so these can be made with a skinny nail and a hammer instead of a drill.
Nail & Hammer
First thing to do is to punch the hole. If you are a power tool user – a drill will make simple work of this task, but I do not like power tools so I tapped a skinny nail into the end and pulled it out to make the hole. Next I thread the string or twine through the hole. I recommend making the hole and attaching the string first, in case the stick splits or cracks.
Once the tag is ready, then I stamped the message on with the rubber stamps. I used black ink and gold for the “mom” on the one tag.
Another idea is to make holes on both ends of the craft stick and run string through both ends and tie it around a package like a bracelet. For decorating ideas, you could hand write the message on the stick with a skinny tip marker too.
