If your kids are not out of school yet, this post is for you. You awesome mom that is still trying to figure out end-of-year gift for her kid’s teachers. You beautiful mom that is still getting up to make breakfast and pack lunches. You patient mom that is still encouraging kids to keep reading and doing homework. You precious mom that is still getting kids to go to bed even when the sun is still visible. Bless your hearts. You deserve to be promoted. You deserve the trophy on awards day. You rock.
If your kids are already out of school, I have nothing further to say to you.
Can you tell which category I am in? Yes, we have 4.5 days. Yes, I want that trophy.
So here is a fun little project that is sure to make you look like you have it all together. People will say “how do you find the time to make gift tags?” or “You must have more hours in you day than I have in mine”. Or they might even say “You know they make gift tags that you can just WRITE the name on”.
You can just shrug your shoulders, smile and think of the 5 minutes you spent on this project.
These gift tags were in the Dollar Spot at Target and I just couldn’t pass them up. I figured that they could be used any time of the year. (anyone related to me, you’ll get yours at Christmas)
I have used this set of metal stamps before when I made the coin necklace. I borrow this stamp set from my neighbor each time I have a little project. One of these days I’ll buy my own, but as long as she doesn’t mind…
Gently tap the letters onto the tag. Then take chalk ink and fill in each letter. Just wipe the excess away and the ink will stay down in the punched letter.
See, how easy??
Hang in there mom. You got this. You can make it to the end. Finish strong. Remember, your reward at the end is 3 months of kids being home every single day…wait, what?
