1. Hand write or computer journal your message on regular 8.5 x 11 computer paper. Cut the message to a strip 3/8 inch wide. This width may differ depending on the width of ribbon spool you are using. Tip: Leave a large space at around the 4 ¾ mark when you write out your message as this will accommodate a glue dot to secure the rest of the message strip when it’s rolled around the spool . Again depending on the spool you are using this measurement may change.
2. Trace the perimeter of the spool onto pattern paper. Trim out the circles, adhere them to the back and front and decorate as you wish. Roll the message strip onto the spool using small glue dots to secure it in place.
3. Take a 12 inch length of ribbon, make a loop, adhere this to the back of the spool.
4. Turn over and tie a bow at the bottom. Voila you’ve just made a cute tag.
