Pinspired Creations: Gift Tags

Next to make from my Pinterest Board are some beautiful handmade gift tags.

I saw these ones made by Nancy at Tattered Treasures:


I even entered her contest in the hopes of winning some, but no such luck.

So I made my own!
DIY Gift Tags, Handmade Gift tags, Papercrafts

What caught my eye with Nancy's tags is the edging. I love that she uses colours besides brown and black. So, I used Olive green. I really need to work on my edging techniques but practice makes perfect, so I think I'll try my hand at a few more with some other colours.

I also spritzed mine with some pretty peach shimmer mist and used fat stick on thingies to create more texture and dimension.

I even made some for next Christmas with some paper scraps I had!  Sickening...I know.


I used a gold stamp pad for the edging on these ones.


These were the perfect addition to my Pinspired Crystal Candles when I gave them away as gifts.


What do you think? I hope it inspires you to try some of your own~

Thanks for the inspiration Nancy !
