First up I cut up some tag shapes with my Silhouette. I used some lightweight card as backing and some adhesive backed paper from Silhouette for the fronts.
I stuck the pieces together and then inked the sides.
OK, cards done....next up, yo-yo's!
I'm not going to give a step by step on how to do yo-yo's because there are lots of great tutorials already out there, like THIS one that I used from Positively Splendid~
|Buttons & Ribbons Seashells|
I baked my buttons and then sewed them onto the yo-yo's.
All that was left was to glue the yo-yo's onto the tags and add some ribbons.
Now the next time I have a gift to give, I have tags ready to use!
I like the old fashioned very homemade aspect of yo-yo's. Have you ever made and used them in a project?They're an awesome stash buster. Leave a comment~
