Lace Gift Tag "How To"

 How do you make a sweet little gift tag, that will make a big impact?


Easy.

You will need: 
* package of White Boards that are used to make artist trading cards. I like them because they are thicker then card stock , (same as mat board, but already cut for you!).  
*lace
*Mod Podge
*seam binding, or ribbon
*embellishments,  (I used a key, a birds nest,  a glass glittered egg, and a wooden to/from tag). 
.

*punch a hole in the corner of the cardboard
*apply a thick layer of Mod Podge
*place lace on top of mod podge, and trim to size
*add another layer of Mod Podge on top of the lace, 
*trim lace from punched hole, and add seam binding or ribbon, and charms 
*If you want an embellishment on the body of the tag, such as a birds nest or another charm, glue it on now
*allow tag to dry

Using a small glassine bag as an envelope completes the look of this tag, and remember to write something sweet on the bag side of this gift tag! 

Have a beautiful Wednesday,
Ele

I love the sweetness and sophistication of your tags. Can hardly wait to make some of them. Have to get some seam binding. Used up all I've been hoarding doggone it. Just found your blog, have subscribed as I love visiting blogs, reading/seeing what is on them.

Very nice! When I've tried to find "Hug Snug" locally the store clerks look at me very puzzled! Your art also inspires me. Have a blessed day
