Felt Gift Tags

If you didn’t already know I take part in a Google Plus hangout most weeks with some other craft bloggers. You can choose to watch them live or catch up later by watching the video on YouTube or on the blogs of those that have taken part.

Last weeks craft hangout was all about felt.

One of the things I like to do is use felt flowers, pin wheels and swirls to decorate presents and gifts.

They’re relatively easy to make and are great for using up remnant scraps of material.

Most felt flowers are suitable you just work around the type of scrap you have.

You can glue them to the gift tag or glue them directly on to present itself as the as the main decoration.

Don’t be scared about putting large flowers on gift tags. they work really well and there’s always room on the back to write your note.

If you’re really adventurous and have the time you could turn the flowers into brooches or hair accessories first so they become a wearable present.
