Every year I like to make my own Christmas gift tags, especially for my crafty pals who appreciate them. In fact, my friend Wendy has kept all the tags I’ve made her over the years and hangs them on the tree. If you have been following my blog you will know that I have a thing about denim and it’s been nearly 2 months since my last upcycled jeans project; my denim suitcase. So as I’m suffering from a bit of denim withdrawal, I’ve decided to make a denim gift tag this year from upcycled old jeans.
You may think that working with denim is a bit of a faff for a gift tag, but they aren’t just gift tags. The monogrammed denim gift tags almost become a gift in themselves. They can be used as a decoration, a key ring, and a bookmark afterwards.
what you need to make Denim gift tags
Scraps of denim from old jeans, shirts etc. I find that the softer more worn pieces of denim are good for this project.
