{Christmas in July} #2 - Quilted Paper Gift Tags

Christmas in July continues with a fun and simple project...quilted paper gift tags.  Before I get started, a HUGE thank you to The Frugal Girls for featuring my Santa Belt Ornament I made yesterday.  For all you new visitors and followers, Welcome!

Quilted Paper Gift Tags


Today I decided to experiment with my new found love of my sewing machine.  I am not much of a sewer, but I have proven that I can sew paper and I love it.  For this project I used scrapbook paper and felt.  Very easy.  If you don't machine sew, you could easily do this using a hand sewn method for a fun and unique look.  I would like to try it using some different color threads as well.  I can't wait to decorate packages and more this holiday season!

  3. Hand sewing paper can be very difficult. You almost need to pre-punch the holes with a push pin. Cute tags though. Might have to try those for gift cards.
