Valentine’s Day is coming, and that means cards and gifts. But it doesn’t have to mean fuss! With the right tool, like the Dymo Organizer Xpress label maker, and a few creative shortcuts, you can whip up gorgeous cards and tags to tell share your Valentine’s Day message of love.
The Dymo Organizer Xpress is an updated version of the black embossing tape label maker that most of us have long been familiar with. Only now the tape is available in a rainbow of colors, in addition to black, and it’s easy to get a consistently clear impression without breaking your hand!
Strips are a great way to create a quick, colorful design on cards, layouts, or any paper craft project. And bonus – they match perfectly with the strips from the label maker! These strips look like the are randomly placed but if you look closer, they are actually arranged very carefully to balance the color placement. The circles at the top, for instance, balance out the stripes in the same color scheme at the bottom of the card. The black chevrons at the top balance out the black of the label strips. The floral placed near the top balances the flower sticker on the bottom.
