Scrap Fabric Christmas Gift Tags

I'm on a roll making gift tags for Christmas this year, experimenting with different methods and styles. Believe it or not, this is my first year making my own and I honestly don't think I'll ever go back to store bought. Today's tags are made with fabric scraps and cardboard from packaging.
