But there's no rest for the wicked- especially at this time of year. I've started to throw myself into preparations for my Christmas. Still there's time for a quick tutorial...
These are the Fabric Gift Tags that I made for the fair- Aren't they Festive?!
They are easy to make and give you a chance to use your scrap materials, plus they make a present that little bit more special... It's my first Tutorial so bear with me.
Festive fabric - Coordinating Felt and embroidery thread - Baker's twine or ribbon - Light coloured card (I used 175gsm) - Coordinating button - Thick scrap card - A gluestick - Scissors - An embroidery needle - A hole puncher - An eyelet puncher - Eyelets - A pencil
Use thick card to create a template for your gift tag, then use this to cut shape out of chosen felt and light card. Trim about 5mm off each edge of the card tag.
Using the thread tails, attach a button, tie a bow and trim the ends.
Voila- pretty gift tags!
I used stamps to print 'To:' and 'From:' on the smaller ones and stenciled 'Love Santa x' on the larger ones with Sharpie.
And they don't have to be just for Christmas...
