So what I'm going to share today is really simple. It isn't quite a tutorial, but an idea born out of desperation last Christmas Eve. I had run out of gift tags as I was wrapping gifts, and with a billion other things left on my to-do list, I grabbed what I had on hand and made do. Except what I ended up with was really kind of fun, and I liked it well enough to do again this year. So here you go, my reckless invention - Quilted Gift Tags.
Start with some plain shipping tags. I happened to have red on hand, but they do come in a variety of colors. For this project, I used the 4 3/4" x 2 3/8" size.
Now I took what was left from a quilted project . . .
and cut it into 2" x 3 1/2" pieces.
I was able to get several rectangles out of my one 'scrap.'
Just stitch around the edges of your quilted bits right onto the tags and voila! Add some baker's twine (I cut mine 12" long for each.) and you're all set. There's plenty of room on the back side to write your gift greeting.
I'm thinking this project is random enough to join in for Really Random Thursday. You agree?
