A Guide to Creating Simple Gift Tags

Hey everyone! Its Bea here, and I’m sharing a super easy tag-trio with you today! Gift tags are a great way to put a handmade touch on presents. Not to mention that playing with pretty papers and scrapbook supplies is so much fun! This time I used the stunning Willow collection by 1 Canoe 2. I love the bright, natural colors just as much as the gorgeous floral elements in this line! It's super easy to mix and match the papers with the embellishments. The whole collection has a lovely countryside atmosphere.

Here are the tags I created:


Layering is my favorite technique when creating an easy tag! I started my first tag by trimming a 2.5×5” rectangle base using white cardstock. Then I trimmed a tag with almost the same size using patterned paper, and machine stitched them together. I punched hole at the top and added a tiny paper ring to protect the hole. Next, I layered patterned paper pieces on the tag and adhered a beautiful ephemera flower on the top. Adding fussy cut butterfly and enamel dots was the perfect finishing touch. 


Thinking in monochrome color scheme always leads to unique results! To create my second tag, I picked yellow papers and embellishments from the collection. I trimmed down the tag base, and placed a sentiment sticker in the center. Then, I layered the yellow embellishments around the title. To add more interest, I attached a wood leaf and a white eyelet to my tag.  


You can never go wrong with adding pocket to your tags! On my third tag, I added a tiny vellum pocket to the bottom, and placed sequins and tiny labels inside. So pretty! 



Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope I have been able to show you how easy it is to create tags using the Willow collection.
