In case the pom pom leather luggage tags were a bit too girly for you, we have a whole other type of tag to float your boat: DIY leather bar and drink tags! It’s a similar concept, but a whole new aesthetic that the guys in your family won’t cringe from, which is perfect for upcoming Spring evenings.

Materials:
  • leather scrap
  • brass eyelets and setter
  • rotary punch
  • leather stamp set
  • rotary cutter or xacto knife
  • mallet
  • bakers twine

Using your rotary cutter, cut out your desired shapes, and make sure they’re wide enough to fit all your letters.

Wet down your tag with a damp paper towel or sponge, and using a safe hard surface beneath, stamp each letter by striking it several times with your mallet.

  • This is a fun idea, and you could make them into present gift tags, especially for a guy’s gift.

    These are gorgeous. They’d be perfect over a vintage decanter, or even for a party attached to drinks jugs and food implements identifying special dietary items. Love the idea!

    The giver can present a gift basket containing chocolates and candies within it that would
    be among the most preferable 21st birthday gifts.

  • A simple candlelight dinner can be one of the most romantic gifts you
    can give someone on Valentine’s Day. The bottom line is mainly to dig a target niche
    that can best convert leads into actual sales. Giving
    presents is easy; choosing the right one is
    not. Tomatoes are wonderful, but you have to
    pick them during the growth cycle when the fruit is firm.
