For me nothing is more wonderful than handmade gift. This may explain why I have crafted everything from scarves to spice mixes to gift friends and loved ones. Each gift is made with loving care so I think the packaging should express the same sentiment.
I recently finished a Clapotis for one of my dearest friends. I couldn't bear the thought of it traveling to Texas in an ugly box. So I looked for the perfect box. I got lucky and found a pale minty green box with polka dots. Next, I rustled up coordinating tissue paper and made the gift tag. The end result was a sweet perfection.
I had never made my own gift tag before. So there was a little trial and error. In the end I was able to create what I hope is pretty and practical keepsake for the giftee.
How to Make a Gift Tag
|Print each side of the tag on the same sheet of paper.|
The backside had fiber and care instructions. This can be pretty handy for knit and crochet items.
The tag can also be used to put extra buttons, yarn or thread.
