Adorable Anthro-style gift tags!

Do you enjoy making your own unique gift tags?  I certainly do.  I'll make them out of old Christmas cards or other materials like card stock and stickers.  But these Anthro Penmanship Gift Tags, from Bev at Flamingo Toes, are extra special. 

You can download the tags from Bev's tutorial.  They are blank except that "TO" is already in place, looking as if one had stamped it there.  Then you add the horizontal blue lines and the vertical red lines by stitching with your sewing machine.  Fun!  Punch a hole in each tag, add a loop of bakers' twine, and you will be finished.  You'll have a stack of very unique tags for your most special gifts. 

Anyone can slap a to/from sticker on a gift and be done with it.  But you could make a bunch of these right now, in summer, and have them ready for your Christmas gifting (although they would work for any occasion).  Happy stitching!

  4. I love paper crafts that have machine stitching on them - they take on a whole new look.
