Quick Holiday Gift Tag Ideas

Easy and quick gift cards
These were made several years ago and appeared in one of the magazines I worked for. I used holiday panel fabrics, fussy cut motifs, and fused them onto card stock. Some are single pieces of paper with a hole punch for stringing ribbon through. Others I folded like a card so I could write more inside. You can even see the little card on the top left where I used my faithful Bernina 1230's alphabet to write "Merry Merry" around the sides and top. And Santa's head? It's the center of a mini log cabin block that I layered with batting and backing and quick stitched for some extra color.

Look through your stash to find those little holiday prints (or any prints, for that matter) that you can cut out and fuse to card stock (I used a fusible web; glue will work also).

You can use this idea for any time of the year for any occasion. I just happened to have a whole set of these for a class I taught a few years ago. Enjoy the inspiration!
