Hello Friends, Preeti here on the Rubbernecker blog today showcasing shaped gift tags using stamps and die cuts. Threre are so many different shapes of nesting dies and stand alone dies avaibale at Rubbernecker and they will all work beautifully for this project. I have made wine and coffee tags for my project today, but you can make a flower tag, a circle tag and many more endless possibilities.
One question I get asked very often is what do you do with all your cards and projects you make and I always say, I make them with love to give them away with love. Which means that every project I make should and always have a meaning and purpose behind it. I have realized projects with no purpose end up going no where. These serve a fun purpose, and make your gifts extra special.
