Louise is the author of Laid Off Mom, and she’s also one of the kindest people I know. With a background as a costume designer and fashion apparel instructor, Louise creates beautiful handmade projects for her family and their home. This simple DIY will provide the perfect adornments for all those gifts you’ll soon be wrapping.
For every perfect gift, there’s a perfect tag — something thoughtfully put together, not your run of the mill sticker slapped onto a present. This DIY is just that: a must to add to all your presents this year!
– stamp (of your choosing)
– stamp pad
– fabric scissors
– white cotton or light to medium weight fabric (your preference)
– twine/ribbon (your preference)
Print out the provided template, cut it out, pin to your fabric and cut out your fabric pieces.
Working w/ one fabric piece at a time, fold in half and stamp the front of your little pouch.
Fold the top over (approx. ¾ in.) and slip your twine/ribbon through the channel. Pin in place.
Sew the channel shut, making sure not to sew the twine/ribbon.
Sew the other side of the gift tag, but don’t sew the channel opening.
Flip the bag over and fill it with a special note. Adorn your most special gifts!
