I love to give hand made gifts. If I don’t give handmade, I at least like to add some creativity to the gift wrapping. Our latest project is mini heart gift tags.
I have been enjoying some quick crochet projects recently that are helping me use all those odd bits of left over yarn. I found a fun tutorial over at The Party Artisan to make some tiny crocheted hearts. They literally take 5 minutes to make. Edit: Free Crochet Heart pattern available at Planet June.
Once they are made, they can be used to make Mini Heart Gift Tags.
- Crochet hearts
- plain tags (I purchased mine at a newsagent but you could make your own if you have a die cutting machine)
- White paper doileys
- glue tape
- hot glue gun
I cut a piece of paper doiley to decorate the tag and add some texture. I love the look of white on white but you could use coloured doileys, scrap booking paper, or a scrap of your favourite fabric. I applied the doiley to the tag using some glue tape. Then I added a crochet heart and attached it using the hot glue gun. These will be great to decorate small gifts.
