* stamped clothes pin gift tags

Posted on December 5th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Holiday.

Gift tag idea for this year: clothes pins stamped with names.  The plan is to wrap yarn around the present and then clip these on.


As you can see, 6 letters is the limit, which luckily is only a problem for a couple of people on my list.  I’m using a stamp pad recommended for wood (VersaMagic Multi-surface chalk ink, initially gotten to use on fabric) and it seems to actually work pretty well.  These are bamboo and have a glossier finish relative to normal wood pins, so ymmv.

    Robert is so excited about the clothespin tags – he can’t wait to put them on the Christmas tree!

    LOVE THESE!!! You are so clever. I have many sets of letter-stamps, but have never come across these cool “circle” fellas. Where, oh where, did they come from?
