Throwback Friday! Last year around this time I posted a quick project that can be done in about an hour – gift tags. These gift tags have proved to be very handy over this past year. They have been used mostly to label gifts. I posted this project on my previous blog but I knew that I wanted to bring it back as it was fun to do and quite handy to have around. I mean who doesn’t love gift tags! Wait, personalized gift tags!
The possibilities don’t stop at gift tags my friends. You can also use these in many different ways. Another idea would be to create these for the use of price tags. At craft fairs, markets and shows you can use these to help bring that special touch to your products. People notice that extra effort. I do! I love to see when others do to!
I left all original photos and text from the original post.
Enjoy your weekend and as always be in His blessing!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted but for good reason my friends! There has been a lot of activity on my little side of the world but more to come on that.
In this tutorial I created a tag that could be used for marking a price on an item or for marking a gift. It’s a simple start to MANY creative possibilities and uses. Thank you to Printable Party Decor for posting the free Gift Tag SVG file.
- Scrapbook paper/Decorative Paper
- Cutting Machine or Scissors
- SVG “Gift Tag” cutting file – Only if you are using a cutting machine and design software
- Design software if you are using a cutting machine
1. Upload your SVG file onto your design software. Notice that the tag is outlined in black which means that it isn’t ready to be cut.
2. I used the trace feature and then highlighted what I wanted traced. The picture below shows the tag outlined in yellow which tells me it was traced and ready to be cut.
3. With a ruler I measured the dimensions of my tag and then resized my tag on the software.
4. I then replicated the tag to fit an entire 12×12 paper. You are ready to cut. Make sure to adjust your cut settings to the appropriate paper you are using and make sure your blade is set as well.
5. This is the paper I chose.
6. This is what the tag should look like after it is cut.
In His service,
