I did play around the weekend before last with a little scrappy gift tag idea. Here's a quick tutorial for you ...
Ok, so a card stock rectangle and a strip of green cut with pinking shears (solid works great since we'll see both sides). My strip is about 1/2 inch or so wide.
Fold and press the strip into a tree shape.
Lay the tree on the card stock and stitch it down. (Tip: Use an old need when sewing on paper.)
I used a corner rounder and a oval punch to finish up my tag.
Then cut out some little circles from another scrap to make ornaments. I used some cherries - the circles are so small it won't matter that its not Christmas-y.
Place the ornaments where you want them and then just do a quick straight stitch back and forth over each ornament to tack them down. I did rough up the edges of the tree with my fingernail to fray the fabric a little and give some more texture to it.
Then write a message on the bottom, add some ribbon to tie on the package and you are all set!
Hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial. :-)
Happy Sewing! :-)
