I adore gift wrapping! You can't beat pretty ribbons, tags and confetti!
I thought I'd share this simple embroidered gift tag as an idea you can customise for any pattern. You can even make monogram versions.
- Card stock
- Embroidery thread
- Embroidery needle
- Sizzix Big Shot Plus Starter Kit
- Tag die from starter kit
- We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy piercer
- Double sided sticky tape
I cut out the tags on kraft card stock so the stitching would really stand out in pastel colours.
Using a piercer I made a pattern to stitch - you could easily mark your own with a pencil and awl.
Using all six strands of thread, I stitched the patterns using a simple backstitch.
Using double sided sticky tape, I fixed another die cut tag to the back to cover the back of the stitching.
Add a contrasting ribbon, gift box and confetti and you've got yourself a custom handmade gift tag!
I love how simple this idea is and it uses one of my favourite crafts; stitching onto card or paper!
Have a great day and see you next time.
