It’s not a secret that I’m a DIY nerd.. I love everything that has to do with DIY:ing and I just can’t help but wanting all the new tools I find. Therefor I have a new segment in the blog, where I’ll try a DIY tool of mine each month, and show you the result. And remember that nothing here is sponsored if I don’t write it, so this is just my honest opinion.
This time it’s We r memory keepers- Tag punch board. This one I actually got from my moms aunt. A dream came true when I got a package from her FILLED with different kinds of DIY:ing tools and other DIY supplies <3 With this tag punch board you can make custom gift tags (or other types of tags). You can make the tags in a variety of styles and sizes. Here is instructions and at the same time a review!
First of all, I really love the colors of it! The mint blue with the beige color, and golden details, is right up my alley. And even though it’s made out of plastic, it’s really robust and you can tell it won’t break.
First of all I start with getting the paper I want even. It will be hard getting the edges straight if you don’t have a paper cutter. This one from FISKARS is really good if you want to have a small one. You can find it here. So I would recommend you getting a paper cutter before getting the tab punch board.
Time to cut the first corner. And this was really easy. As you can see there are lines at the board, which will help you knowing where to cut. Each line has a letter, so when you flip the paper, you’ll know where to cut it to get it even. SUPER simple!
When cutting it you remove the blade and place it in the track, and then just slide it. The blade is really sharp and it’s easy to cut through the paper. Again, this tool is great.
Just flippin’ the paper over and doing the same thing there.
Time to do the hole in the front. It’s really easy to center it, and then just push it down, and you get a hole. Have to say it again- I really love how easy this is!
And here’s the result, do you like it? Planning on making a lot of these and have as tags on Christmas gifts, personal and fun to do. So as you probably can tell when reading this post I really like this tool. A lot. And I’m going to use it. A lot.
OH and btw, I can’t wait to making small scrapbooks using this tool. Similar to this one but only using tabs. Maybe as a Christmas present?2
