Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away? If you're like me & haven't had a chance to wrap all your goodies, yet you still want to add a personalised touch, these DIY tags are perfect.

What you'll need:
  • Coloured or plain cardboard sheets
  • Stamp ink pads in various colours
  • Christmas stamp-I got mine from Kikki-K
  • Rustic twine or coloured string
  • Hole-punch 
  • Scissors
  • Pencil 
  • Ruler

1. Measure the length of your stamp to determine the size of your tag. Mine was about 6 cm.
2. Once you've drawn a rectangle to accommodate the stamp, measure the halfway point towards the top of the tag & make a small mark. Then corner of the top of the tags to make that classic tag shape. For example: My rectangle was 6 cm by 8 cm, my halfway point was 3 cm & I measured 2 cm diagonally to square off the tag shape.
3. Once that has been cut out, punch a hole at your halfway mark & rub off excess pencil marks.
 4. Stamp your tag with the chosen ink colour.
5. Write your message & loop tie with twine.

Et voila! You have your very own personalised tags!
 You can do so many different variations with this simple template. Above are a few with some cute little quotes & inspirational words. Hope you enjoy my first DIY!
