I recently acquired a massive new selection of washi tape inventory but due to my busy travel schedule, I still haven't yet had the time to get all of the listings up. However, I really, REALLY hope to have everything listed by the end of next week.
I've also acquired a ton of new stamp stock but still haven't managed the time to get everything sorted and listed; story of my life! Please be patient with me, slowly but surely, everything will get listed soon.
But now for something completely different. One thing I'd really like to blog about is gift tags. I just received a really fun custom order request for vintage railway themed gift tags for birthday party favors. I had so much fun making these tags that I wanted to share this great idea with my readers. Obviously, you can create your own tags with any theme, not just trains, for any occasion. Even though I used vintage postage stamp embellishments, you could use anything that suits your fancy. Also, although I typed on the tags with a vintage typewriter, you can write you own messages in pen, stencil, rub on letters or alphabet stickers.
Vintage Luggage Tags - Paper Punched Gift Tags
Here are some of the supplies you could use:
Pens & Markers
Luggage tag shaped paper punches and/or round/circular paper punches
Vintage Postage Stamps or other embellishments
To create the antiqued paper look, rub the edges of your punches with a brown or tan ink pad.
Layering your punches creates more texture and gives you more space for messages.
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you could use this same idea but with heart shaped punches for romantic gifts and greetings.
