Friendship & Feathers

I love dressing up gifts decadently. Isn’t it more interesting and intriguing to receive a gift that is deliciously decorated -where that little bit of extra care has been taken to add something special?

I usually add some ribbon- this has to be a lovely fabric ribbon or twine - and usually more than one kind too.

Don’t you love these ribbons from Ebony & Ivory?

Then, depending on what I’ve wrapped the gift in, be it a pretty gift bag {with loads of colourful co-ordinating tissue paper!}, a beautiful box or simple gift wrap, I might add a handmade flower, or other embellishment. I always add a pretty tag to finish it off.

I have a huge stash of ribbons and embellishments in my scrapbooking supplies – seriously a HUGE stash! So I can whip up a pretty gift wrap in seconds. I sometimes find that it’s the tag that gets done in a hurry as I don’t have any ready-made ones on hand.

I discovered Kard Krazy recently and decided to jump in and take up the challenge to make a tag each Tuesday. This way I can make up a variety of tags and keep them in a little box and simply grab one when there is some gift wrapping to do.

This week’s tag’s theme is  friendship, here’s my little digital tag I made :

If you click on it, you can download a ‘png’ digital image which you can use for digital scrapbooking. Click on the following tag to download:

Simply print it onto cardstock, cut it out, punch a small hole in the top and add it to a gift.

Graphics on the tag are from The Graphics Fairy. Font used : Travelling Typewriter.

Enjoy your Thursday!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog! honestly that blanket is soo easy to make, it's easier than making the crochet flowers!! I've almost finished now and its only taken me 6 weeks!!
I love your tag! thank you for sharing it!
I like wrapping things up nicely too, but often forget until the last minute!

What a beautiful tag and thanks for sharing it! I too am always looking for ways and means to tie up presents beautifully and to me, it's the funnest part about giving a gift! I always get told that they don't want to open it cos it looks so nice-that's when you know you've done a good job! hee hee. maybe we should do a tag swap sometime! cheap to send by post cos they are light!

I think it's a great idea to make up a bunch of tags to have on hand. I, too, love to have special gift wrap for every package, because that way, it becomes part of the gift. Your tags are fabulous. Love the little bird at the bottom.
visiting from the Graphics Fairy. TFS!
