Needlework Themed Gift Tags

In case you need some gift tags for those presents you'll be out buying this week (or that you're just finishing up making!), here's a set of six with a needlework theme.  I put them onto felt to go along with the fibers theme, but they can also just be printed out onto card stock.  Several of these images come from Graphics Fairy - you can find all sorts of vintage and other interesting images there!

*red and green felt
*1/8 inch ribbon
*printer prepared fabric - I used Iron-On Quick Fuse that can be printed and then ironed directly onto another piece of fabric after printing
*pinking shears
*tapestry needle
*craft knife
*gift tag file here

1.  Print the gift tags onto the printer fabric.

2.  Cut each gift tag out.

3.  Iron onto felt.  Note:  if you're using Eco-Felt or thin polyester felt, use a pressing cloth or a piece of paper under your iron to prevent it from melting on the iron.

4.  Cut out with pinking shears.  Using a craft knife, cut a small slit in the left hand side.

5.  Cut a 12 inch piece of ribbon, thread it through the tapestry needle, and pull through the slit.  Knot next to the gift tag.  I then use a fine point Sharpie to write on it.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
