Sewn Gift Tag Tutorial



Yesterday we featured aquamarine and ruby bird gift tags. Today we are taking a look at a simpler style of gift tag, which has a gorgeous sewn detail. These Sewn Gift Tags by The Adventures of Bluegirl are perfect for adding the final touches to your wedding bomboniere/favours...

What you need:

• A piece of cardstock 
• A scrap of fabric 
• A punched out piece of decorative paper,
• A little ribbon. 



Step 1. Cut a rectangle out of cardstock and one from a fabric scrap 3 1/2 inches long and 2 3/4 inches wide.





Step 2. Use a glue stick to adhere the fabric to the paper rectangle. Round the corners with scissors.


Step 3. Punch out of decorative paper a 2 inch scalloped square. Glue the scalloped square to the fabric with a glue stick.



Step 4. Make a little template and mark a square for your stitching lines.



Step 5. Sew along the pencil lines.



Step 6. Use a japanese screw hole punch and punch two circles in the top of your tag big enough to thread a ribbon through.

Step 7. Thread a length of seam binding through the two holes like this. Tie a knot with both ribbons together and trim.
