Hot on the heels of sewing scrappy strips together for those 3" notecards I shared HERE, I made some scrappy gift tags. I stitched the fabric scraps to cardstock (half a sheet of paper at a time) and then put them through my Sizzix machine using the gift tag die. Then I used the die to cut some unadorned cardstock, so I could stitch the blank cardstock to the backs of the scrappy tags for a nice, clean look. I love the results, so more of these will be made. Next time, I might try some embellishments - like buttons or eyelets or iron on monograms or...
Truly, the possibilities are endless and what could be more quick and easy for slimming the scrap stash!
|Just remember to keep the machine needles used for stitching cardstock separate from those used for your other sewing projects. Sewing cardstock dulls needles!|
Some projects are just too good to only do once.
