Christmas Gift Tags - Tutorial


Appearing in the Habitat Section of today's The West Australian are my Christmas Gift Tags.  Now into December, the trees are starting to go up and with that means that presents will be wrapped and placed under the tree awaiting Christmas day.  Here are some gift tags you can quickly make using small fabric scraps, ribbons and some buttons.

Here are the templates for the cards - you will need to click on and print out the template sheet below



Plum Pudding Gift Tags

You will need:

White card
20cm red ribbon
Brown fabric
White fabric
Green fabric
Red button
Pudding template
1.       Cut out the card to make a 10.5cm x 7.5cm rectangle.  Punch a hole in the top and cut of the top corners 2cm down from the top.

2.       Trace the Pudding onto brown fabric, the sauce onto white fabric and the holly leaf onto green fabric and cut out.  Place the pudding in the centre of the tag and using a small stitch on your sewing machine (1.5), sew around the outside of the Pudding. Place the sauce on the top and sew around the outside of it.  Place the holly leaf into position and sew around the outside.

3.       Place your red button into position and sew into place.

4.       Tie your red ribbon through the hole in the top.
