Car Gift Tags

Car gift tags. gift tags for mkenI can’t pretend that this was my all my idea, I took it from a novel way of gift wrapping from http://www.linesacross.com/2012/12/interactive-gift-wrap-for-kids.html and fiddle farted with it to make really cheap and different gift tags.
Poundland Micro racers. Car gift tags.The cars came from, where else but Poundland …. and at 10p each where else could you buy an tag embellishment for that? The cars measure approx. 1.25ins x .50in.
Car gift tag. car gift tagsI’ve used quite heavy Kraft card for the tag bases that measure 4.75ins x 2ins. and then added a strip of black for the road, using a white gel pen to add the road markings. 
car gift tags. micro car gift tagsI then used my Crop-o-dile to set a gold eyelelet, and a black cord with matching pony bead as the tie.
car gift tagThe car needed to be attached to the tag with a good strong glue, so I decided that I my glue gun would be the best answer.
Micro car gift tag. car gift tagAnd that’s all there is to them. Something a bit different to put on a mans present perhaps (but not suitable for small children)
So pleased am I with the result that I will now be scouring the Poundshops of Wolverhampton for similar small toys that can also be used on other tags for other occasions  ….. perhaps a tiny tea set for a Thank You for tea tag?????

Oh I love this idea! 3D thinking for your gift tags, and it's always extra hard for "boy things". Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

I LOVE this idea. My 7-year-old grandson would think this is the best gift tag ever! I guess I need to keep my eyes open for these tiny toys, too. Your idea of a tiny tea set is great, too.
