DIY: Polka dot gift tags
Following on from the previous post about polka dots, I thought I would
make a few really easy gift tag ideas channeling the polka dot. I very
rarely buy 'ready-made' gift tags anymore, as you can buy plain ones on
eBay in bulk and then customise them yourself. These are 3 really simple
ideas using coloured ink or stickers...
The ink stamp set came from ImagineDIY and I used pencil eraser refills as the stamp. I picked these up in Bentalls in Kingston, but I'm sure you can get them in most stationery shops. SUCH a simple one to make and you can create your own patterns, experiment with the colours etc!
I think these are my favourite. I got this pack of masking tape stickers on Etsy. Again SO simple, and you can just play around with different designs and add different ribbons to match the stickers.
The last one is probably the cheapest one, as the stickers are really cheap to buy from any stationery shop. With a bitmore of a bold, graphic feel these would be perfect for gifts for males.
You'll never have to spend money on fancy gift tags ever again! :)
