DIY Leather Heart Gift Tags
- 5mm leather stamps set
- paper heart template
- clear tape
- multi hole punch
1. Tape your paper heart template to your leather and cut around the shape.
2. Neaten your edges to get nice curves
3. Using the same technique as I used in the Leather Luggage Tags, place the leather hearts under two boards and sandwich the stamps between them where you want to stamp your letters. This will give you a guideline and keep your letters straight.On a scrap piece of leather, experiment with how many times you need to hit the stamps to make a good impression, this will vary on the type of leather you have. Once you are ready, decide on what you want your tags to say and stamp away!
4. Get creative with what you write, although make sure you plan the spacing first.
Finally, Using a multi hole punch tool, punch a hole near the top of the heart. Thread a piece of string through the hole and attach it to your parcel.
