You can use any kind of acrylic paint for this project. We found that the less glossy, the better.

Spell out your words on your gift tags and gift boxes using vinyl letters. For our gift box, we went with the simple message of joy. For tags, personalize ’em!

Let dotted goods dry overnight. Use an Xacto knife to peel off letters so you get nice clean lines. Voila!

For the box, we went with a sort of ombre blend of blue to red.

In the words of Ren & Stimpy, happy happy joy joy!
