Because I’m a designer, I have always have a pile of fabric scraps lying around. A few weeks ago I was in the middle of cleaning up my office and preparing for The Art of Gift Wrapping workshop when an idea struck me. Why not makE gift tags out of my fabric scraps?
This is a super easy project that I know you’ll love so continue reading and check out my cute tags.
♦ DIY FABRIC GIFT TAGS ♦
Fabric scraps–size will depend on how big your tags will be
Assorted size plain kraft gift tags like this and this (the paper tags will give your fabric stability)
Scissors–plain edge or pinking shears if you want a decorative edge to your fabric
Double-sided tape ( The Glue Glider Pro is perfect for this project)
Whole punch (this one is my all-time favorite and should be in any crafters/diy’ers tool kit)
tip: use Fray Check if the edges of your fabric begin to fray a lot
To make your tag, cover one side of the tag with double-sided tape
Place the tape covered side of the tag face down on to the back of your fabric scrap
Cut around the outline of the gift tag to trim the fabric
Use your hole punch to punch through the fabric where the original tag hole was
Add embellishments, sticker or whatever you want to dress up your gift tag
**the holly leaf embellishments you see below is my all-time favorite and came from Hobby Lobby
How easy was that. After you make a few of these tags you’ll be heading to the fabric store to pick up some new fabric cuttings so you can make tags to go with your holiday gift wrap. Don’t be surprised if you see me there too!
