Oops: Gift Tag Fixes

There is nothing worse than feeling like you have wasted a gift tag with a poor stamp impression. Here is a great fix to transform the mistake into a usable card.

Cover the messed up impression with another piece of paper. Wrapping paper is a great option especially if the tag is to go on a present. The tiny pieces of wrapping paper you’ve saved forever now have a use. But don’t feel you have to match the wrapping paper on the gift- mixing it up can be fun and plain paper is always a good bet.

Adhere the messed up side to the paper. A glue stick or double-sided adhesive work good. If you’re looking to catch a specific area of the wrapping paper hold both the paper and tag up to a window to find the sweet spot.

Trim around the tag, using an X-acto knife or scissors. Grab a hole punch or use the knife to cut out space in the circle, but don’t worry about making it perfect. Remember that you’ll be putting ribbon or string through there.

You never know, it might even look as if you planned it.
