Paper-Crafting & Gift Tag Embellishing

Dear Creatives, I did a little paper crafting recently. I really enjoy working with papers, pretty embellishments & dreamy little bits of goodness. Then pull the handmade or embellished gift tags out as needed to top a gift or give to someone. These simple gift tags I dressed up have me wanting to make more gift tags. I love pretty packaging & gift tags are like the icing on the cake, when it comes to topping gifts.

I can’t exactly remember where I picked up these tags. Maybe they were from a scrap-booking purchase a while back. Any how, one of the things I am trying to do is use up my crafting bits & bobs reducing my inventory. I had some white felt & Sammie picked up these little heart embellishments over Valentines day clearance when she was at Michael’s with her dad. So I cut the felt heart & glued it onto the card, then glittered the edge & embellished with the Valentine heart. The cotton lace I placed at the bottom of the gift tag-card & found my pretty pink velvet ribbon to add for a tie on.

Then I had this pretty blue with white polka dots tag. Both tags were pretty as they were, but I felt I wanted to make something special since I have a baby shower to go to soon & various things. I decided to use some left over red felt for this one & a K & Company embellishment that was also picked up on clearance. For the bottom of the gift tag I used an ecru colored cotton lace & I used ecru string that matched for the tie on.

On the back of the blue on it has a ticket that says my heart belongs to. The pink tag has a stamped received for name, date & time of arrival for someone’s special day of birth.

I’m going to be cutting my own tags with my Cricut & making more. Maybe I can stamp something like the received on the ones I will be making too. I promise to share when I get a few done.
