Handmade Gift Tags and Cards

Handmade gift tags and cards are a lovely finishing touch to a wrapped present. They don't need to be fancy. Often a simple card looks the most effective. Today I am showcasing 10 quick and easy gift cards that I have chosen from the Gift Wrapping link party, here at Threading My Way

The following cards and tags have been made for a variety of occasions, but it's very easy to change the theme to suit the season.

This year I'll be sending photo cards, made by Little Ladybird (my daughter) via post to family and friends. For immediate family, I'm hoping to make a few handmade cards - maybe a combination of free motion stitching and fabric. I've seen some fabulous ideas on Pinterest, too and have been adding them to my Gift Wrapping board.

I'd love to see any ideas you have. Add them to the Gift Wrapping link party so we can all have a look.

Before I tackle cards, however, I have presents to organise. I've finally started and now know where I'm headed. Are you on track making arrangements for the upcoming festive season?

  1. *hangs head low* I bought hang tags yesterday because I have gifts to wrap (bag, really, LOL) and just couldn't settle down and actually make some tags. I have a basement full of craft supplies and I actually bought tags - PATHETIC! So this is perfect! Now - where'd I leave my baby ric rac ... :D

  2. Thanks for including mine :) A great selection!!

  3. I love the fabric gift tags, maybe I could get round to trying them next year! Great round up again Pam.

  4. A great collection of tags. I will pin this for later, probably not this year.
