Gift Tags

Wanted to share my simple leaf gift tags made from a paper bag. Inside is a loaf of Autumn Pear Bread -- so delicious!
All I did was
  1. Stamp a background stamp (you'll notice it's not even fall-ish) onto a brown paper bag
  2. Trace a leaf shape onto the stamped part -- with a brown marker
  3. Cut out and edge with faux stitching
  4. Punch a flower from red cardstock and glued it to the top of the leaf before I punched the hole to tie the tag on
  5. Write my message on the leaf and wa-la -- a cute little gift tag for a food gift
For the one above I added a brown rolled rose too.
I tied a pretty fall ribbon around my bread and then tied some twine on too for a country look. 
For this one  I added a little stuffed Mason Jar that I made by stamping my Mason Jar stamp onto the muslin fabric - sewing around it and embroidering "Country" on the front.  Those little buttons in the top corner added quite a bit to it I thought.

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog today and your kind words on my tag I made for Abby.

Your leaf tag is beautiful and the mason jar with the stitching is adorable. Very creative, I love it!

Have a great day!

I *adore* that mason jar tag! I really need to make some of those myself, even if my stamp is smaller than yours. :)

Really cute! These would be cute to tie around napkins for napkin rings too. Love them all! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

I think i'm going to have to buy that stamp. Or maybe have RB draw it. :-) This is one of the cutest tags I've seen. BTW, watch the mail for some cute tags.
