These were designed for the holidays but can easily be adapted to any occasion. Play with the designs to make them your own. For example, the Plum Pudding could easily become a tree ornament.
For more ideas, Google “holiday clipart” (for example) for more designs to work with, or look in coloring books for other ideas. Keep the designs very simple and play up the fabric and embellishments.
Start with stiff card stock or thin smooth sheets of white cardboard. You’ll often find white sheets of the right weight as part of the packaging for various products. Or select a nice card stock, like this one.
Cut shapes from fabric, sew them down and embellish. Punch a hole and add a tie and the tags are ready to go.
The instructions, by Jemima Flendt from Tied with a Ribbon, are written for centimeters instead of inches. Simply cut rectangles from the card stock that are 4″ x 3″ and remove the corners from one end to achieve the correct tag shape.
Download the template of fabric shapes to your computer (right click, save as) and print it from there (you may get a strange size if you try to print from the Internet). Set it up so it prints at 100%, which may mean deselecting the option to fill the page.
