Hand Knit Gift Tags and Cards

My knitting guild had a fun event this month - Knito (bingo)! Everyone contributed prizes and we had a blast playing bingo with knitting terms in the bingo spaces. My contributions to the prizes were some sets of gift tags and cards using the Hand Knit stamp set. They were fun to make and well-received by the recipients.

Here is the set of gift tags. I packaged them in a co-ordinating box with a belly band. I included 12 tags in the box, 4 of each type. These are perfect to attach to a hand-knitted gift. The tags were cut with the Two Tags die and the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch.

Here is a closer picture of the tags so you can see how the teeny-tiny Basic Pearls make such cute buttons on the little sweater image.

The set of cards were also packaged in a hand-made box with a belly band. I included eight cards with envelopes - perfect for sending a note to a knitting buddy!

  4. Sue - I love these ideas. I was there and didn't get to see the cards so I am glad to get to see them now. Especially since I have bought this set from one of your parties. Too bad it is my bed time but I know what I will be doing tomorrow!

  5. These tags are great. How did you do the scallop on the tag? I would love to try it.

  6. The Sizzix die called Two Tags was used to cut the tag with the scalloped top.
