Embroidered Gift Tags

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.

Supplies used:
  • 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.
