We haven't started our Christmas shopping yet, but we do like to have a gift wrapping station set up so that items can be wrapped as we go. First up with our preparations this year are Christmas gift tags.
Joyeux Noel Gift Tags
Using French Script font, we printed Joyeux Noel onto white cardstock, and cut them into strips. Next we cut a piece of red gingham, slightly smaller than our tag. Using the sewing machine we stitched the fabric and the greeting to the tag. Thread the tag with gingham ribbon or bakers twine.
Gingham Fabric Tape:
- Gingham fabric
- JAC double sided adhesive paper
Iron the gingham fabric so that it is nice and flat. Cut a piece of fabric, the same size as the JAC paper. Peel off the backing paper on one side of the JAC paper, and stick it to the wrong side of the fabric. Cut the fabric into 1/2 inch strips. When ready to use, cut the strips into short lengths, and peel of the remaining backing paper, and use it to tape your gifts.
If you don't want to make your own gingham fabric tape, you can find ready made gingham fabric tape at The Haby Goddess.
Hope you enjoyed the first of our Christmas posts - we hope to have more ideas to share over the coming weeks.
