Styling Idea # 119 Gift Tags


When I actually try to find cards and gift tags I am always disappointed at the lack of creativity out there. These products now demand at least $5 a pop and there are really no good cards out there! I say this at the moment because I live in a family of Aquarians. I think I should make some of these little lovelies to have on hand when I give gifts.



  • Don’t use ribbon-find a cute vintage fabric and make strips small enough to wrap through the punctured hole.
  • These simple little flowers are easy enough to copy and so innocent- add the button if you want to make it crafty.
  • If you are giving a number of gifts (say Christmas time) try using a black and white photo of the recipient instead of writing their name on the card.
  • If you don’t trust your flower drawing skills use some print wallpaper in a contrasting colour.
  • Make more than you need and keep at ready for spontaneous little gifts that you give with a smile.
