How to…..Scandinavian style gift tags

These days, with everybody’s busy lives, its hard to find the time for all the things we’d like to make, especially in the run up to Christmas.  With this in mind Nancy has put together some lovely Christmas projects that are ‘time friendly’.  The first one is for these lovely Christmas tags.  Here’s how to…..

1.  Glue fabric to card (Nancy used red card) with slightly watered down PVA glue. Its best to use a brush for an even coverage.  Leave to dry.

2.  Turn over and draw round your chosen templates, cut round with scissors.  Leave under a heavy book so they are nice and flat.

3.  Make a hole with a hole punch and tie with raffia or twine, and admire your work!

If you’d like to use the same fabrics that we have, its the Scandinavian Christmas Fabric Bundle.  Happy crafting!

    Wonderful colours and so clever of you to use the fabrics in this way. Makes you feel very Christmassy!
