I love all the gift tags people have been sharing, they are so festive and a great keepsake. However, I run an adult foster care home and we have 12 clients in a 6 bedroom farmhouse…it gets a little small sometimes.
I really wanted to personalize as much of Christmas as possible for the people we serve but I really want to rein in the hording too. Here’s my solution, personalized back scratchers. I’ll put them in their stocking…so I know who’s is who’s and its something I’m happy they will keep.
This photo is the test I made with my name. ( Can’t violate HIPPA now can I)
I got these back scratchers at Walmart for a buck. The tag offers zero material information so I measured it with my glowforge measuring tool (thanks for that) and converted the 1/4 inch to .25, used 750 speed, 100 power, and 270 LPI and the font is one included in Word ( Curlz MT)
Mine as a single item took 8 min 22 sec. I was able to fit 6 on the tray comfortably and using the same specifications and font, this round says it will take just over 41 min. Not bad at all.
Also, I think I should mention I didn’t use any tape or protective covering on the wood. I got a little bit of schortching but I personally like it and think if gives a vintage look.
Thank you for reading and I hope this gives you more ideas for gift tagging.
