Another easy project for Christmas gift giving when time is short and money is tight. Wooden gift tag/ornaments. Use the back as a gift tag To/From. And burn the year into the back- wala- dual purpose item. No paper wasted. Makes a nice little gift for the paper lady, the postal carrier.. etc. etc. Costs you NOTHING. nada. I freehanded everything but the snowflake. The snow flake I stamped on lightly- then burned over the stamped markings. Date is on the back- sometimes on the front at the bottom. Wood in the first 2 is cedar- from left of cedar shakes that are piled in my garage. (See David/Patron? aren’t we glad we saved those?) Teh wood in the round tags is poplar- these guys are nice and big- diameter is 3-4 inches. Poplar is nice and easy to burn and is light – so less postage when shipping. I have sold about 50 sets of these. HAHAHAA.. Believe it … or not…..... These are the first ones that I did – I have gotten a bit better – or at least I like to think I have. :)
