Little Wooden Gift Tags

Quick and Easy Gift Tags Project

I like to make tags.
(See here.  And here.)
Small projects appeal to me.  
Maybe it's because I can squeeze them in 
while I dream about actually getting other things done. 

Anyway, today I would like to share these little wooden gift tags. 
Quick and Easy. 
Could not be quicker or easier.

These were a fun project for a hot summer afternoon. 
And we've had plenty of those!

 One of my New Year's Resolutions this year was to use what I have.
This little project qualifies, sort of.  You know how projects go... 

First, I picked up these little wooden gift tags.  
Actually, I ordered them on Amazon.  It was too hot to go out shopping.
I bought 50 of them. 
And then I remembered my resolution.

 So I dug out these stickers that I have had for a long time, saving them for the perfect project. 
 Maybe this will qualify...
They turned out to be the perfect size, anyway...

Here comes the hard part.  
I peeled each sticker off and stuck it onto a wooden tag.
Then I added some satin ribbon and/or some jute twine for ties.

I also tried using one of my artsy-fartsy photographs and pasting it on. 
I would use this on a present wrapped in simple kraft paper.
Cute and you could really personalize your tags that way.

I colored these with my marking pens.  
They're even cute just plain, 
and you could use a decorative ribbon or twine.

 For our beloved music teacher...
I had the sheet music scrapbook paper in my stash.

  And just wait until Christmas!
I swear, this is going to be the year 
where I have my gift wrap chosen and organized ahead of time 
and I will NOT resort to using the cheesy tags 
we always end up running out to Walgreens for at the last minute. 

 Finally, a use for some of those Christmas stickers I've been hoarding!
 I will make some of these ahead of time. 
In fact, I should make 50 of them so I don't have any leftover tags...
 I already have one done -  I'm way ahead of last year....

Thanks for visiting!
