Repurposed DIY Handmade Gift Tags
One new thing I would love in my home is a gorgeous velvet sofa and have been eying a few up. I’ve even been sent some lovely velvet fabric samples to help me decide. Unfortunately, though my husband says we aren’t getting a new sofa until the kids have left home and our very elderly dog is no longer with us. So I will have to just wait a couple more years!
You may be thinking what has this got to do with gift tags! Well, I repurposed the velvet sofa swatches to make my handmade gift tags. This craft only takes about 10 minutes.

What I used to make the Handmade gift tags
- Dark woodwax
- Velvet and leather upholstory fabric swatches
- Scissors or fabric shape puncher
- Craft glue
How to make handmade gift tags
- The first thing I did was rub the wooden tags with dark woodwax to darken them
- Next I cut out a selection of small circle and triangle shapes from the upholstery swatches. Bear in mind the size of your tags when deciding on the size of your cut fabirc shapes.
- Arrange the cut fabric shapes onto the tags. Once you are happy with designs glue the shapes to the wooden tags
All that is left to do now is the add the tags to your gifts. You can either use different coloured fabric swatches to make tags that match the colour of your wrapping paper. Or make tags in the favourite colours of the intended gift receipient. These tags are very robust so can be used as luggage tags or bookmarks afterwards.
