Long time no see!

Well I didn't intend to be away for quite so long on the blog but I have been making my nephew's birthday present which has taken up A LOT of time! It's his party on Sunday so you will get to see the pressie then!

I have managed to make quite a few tag sets this week and have actually listed them in my shops too!


These tree gift tags came from a box that I couldn't bear to put into the recycle bin as it was just too pretty :)


These last 3 tag sets have been made from an old fabric sample book that I got from Sams (the scrapstore)

Like this one but this is actually a wallpaper one (I couldn't find any photographs of the fabric ones!) I cut off the useful bit of fabric and am left with the ends of the fabric that is stuck to cardboard to stop it fraying. These are the bits I turn into tags - waste not want not!

I love the tree tags too! You need to find more of those boxes ;)
I use those sample books too. You know if you put a hot iron on the wrong side of the bits with card on, the glue melts and it comes off....you might know this anyway but I thought i'd mention it ;)

great tags and what a great way to use up sample fabics- just wanted to ask which type of glue you use to glue the fabric to the card? and do you buy the gift tags or make your own!!!thanks
