Gingham Jar Kraft Tags

Today I have fiddle farted with some Kraft gift tags ………
Gingham Jar Tags. CraftsThey came about when I found the packet of small jar tags (below) in the reduced box in The Works. I had quite liked them at £1, but I liked them even more for 50p, but as you know, my new mantra is that a bargain is only a bargain if I do something with it/them almost straight away, I can’t afford to let anything languish in my drawers any more!!!!!

I used a sheet of slightly ribbed Kraft card for the tags.  The scraps of paper used came from a Forever Friends  6” x 6” pad and I couldn’t believe that it included  a gingham paper that matched the gingham lids of the jars perfectly.

I added doodled lines using a black fine liner pen on the back and front of the tag to mirror the lines on the jar
Little Gingham Jar Tags. Handmade TagsThe blank label on the jar didn’t look right so I found an old packet of Paperchase flower stickers that fit perfectly and also looked good dotted here and there, again on the front and on the back of the tag.
Reverse of Gingham Jar TagsThe final touch was a cream coloured wooden bead on the cream cord. Done and dusted.
I used all the tags in the packet, so including the Kraft card, stickers and scraps of paper I would say the tags cost approximately 25p each to make.

They turned out beautifully! These would be so nice on a gift of food items of some sort. I know they will be appreciated.

The tags are beautifully decorated, we have a branch of The Works but I usually forget to go in. It's on my list for next weekend now!
