Pine Needle Gift Tags

If you are like me and have pine needles dropping from the tree, instead of tossing them, why not use them for your gift tags?

 Just grab some pine needles, card stock, scissors and glue. Begin by cutting out the shape you want for your tag

Using my mini set of letter stamps, I stamped 'JACOB' onto the tag.  AND, I finally got to try Did Someone Say Party's trick of using a rubber band to hold the mini letters together to keep them straight while stamping...and it worked perfectly.

Using glue {I used a glue stick}, glue your needles down into a pine tree shape.

Add a ribbon and attach it to your gift. 

Does this pine needle gift tag leave you pine-ing to make your own?
