SORRY.....

9th March 2014
After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Simple Wooden Gift Tag

The blank wooden blank that I used for this tag measures approximately 8.5cm x 6cm. Nothing fancy here today …. just a blank tag, a wooden flower and button from WholePort, a bit of faux stitching and a couple of inches of matching ribbon!

Because I craft I think it makes me very mean …. I see the price of gift tags …. from about 45p for a piece of folded glossy card and a bit of ribbon to £1+ for something slightly fancier and I immediately think I could make something better than that!  I know I have a mountain of stuff to choose from,  but I reckon that even if I was starting from scratch (using basic tools) I could make a whole pile of tags for under £2 …… no there’s a challenge!

This is brilliant! I have some wood veneer - really thin stuff - and I am totally going to try this. Your mind is like a Pandora's box of ideas. I love visiting you and coming away with gifts - "idea" gifts - every time! Thank you for always sharing!!!
