Who wants a project??

Today I have a project for you. Maybe or maybe not one you will use but I liked the idea.

Do you know what these are?

They are counter samples. My dad had them lying around from some old jobs so I asked if I could have them!
He of course didn't mind, they are out of stock now and using a new set. So I got the old ones!

And made Christmas present gift tags out of them!!
Pretty cute right? Maybe a little funky.

I painted the backs to cover up all the ordering information that comes on them, tied a piece of ribbon, and used a metallic paint pen to personalize them!

Here is what you need to make one yourself....

...samples, which you can probably get from any local hardware or woodworking shop (they usually just throw them away at the end of the year), any color acrylic paint and brushes, ribbon, and a paint pen!

... now you're completely ready for gift tag making!!
