Personalised gift tags

A quick and easy way to make your presents even more personal with personalised gift tags! (apologies for the shadows - stupid spotlights)!

What you’ll need:

·         2 x Plain white postage tags (I had some ready cut ones but you could cut any shape you want from thin card)
·         Embroidery thread
·         Pencil
·         Scissors
·         Needle
·         Things to decorate your finished tag with

Step 1
Lightly sketch your design onto your tag.

Step 2

Use a basic stitch and follow your design. Make sure you leave a little space between each stitch so your card doesn’t tear.

Step 3

Turn the tag over and secure the thread by threading the needle under a stitch so you can thread a knot.

Step 4

Decide on your decorations. I used buttons and threaded them on.

As you can see on the back I just used the one thread but this will be hidden as this is where tag 2 comes into play!

Step 5

Take the second tag and stitch the two together. This hides any of the messy stitching from before!

Step 6

Add any finishing touches! I added a little handmade bow!
