It's sort of neat that right now, while I'm trying to come up with posts for Christmas in July, I'm looking through the unread inbox items from last December. And I found a keeper that I want to share with you all -- lovely gift tags made by embellishing felt shapes with beads and embroidery. These are the work of the amazingly creative Bev at Flamingo Toes.
Flamingo Toes is one of my favorite creative blogs. If you have never visited, do go over and spend some time looking around. You are sure to be inspired! Bev dreams up some fabulous creations and she does beautiful work. She does a lot of hoop art and I am wanting to make some of that myself. But these Beaded Embroidery Felt Gift Tags are what I want to share with you today.
There's a snowflake, a holly berry, and a monogram tag. These will add beauty to any gift, and I think the recipient might even like to use them as ornaments another year. The felt shapes are neatly backed with kraft paper to cover the back side of the stitchery. Aren't they pretty? You might even think of variations of your own that you would like to try. Have fun!
