ScrapHappy # December

After the fun I had making gift tags last time just out of a piece of pretty card . . . for this month, with Christmas in mind, I made some more tags.

A perfect project for using those small bits of aida that never seem big enough to work on a “proper” project . . . and very little thread.   I stitched lots of little squares, using patterns from the “Tiny Treasures” blackwork design by Elizabeth Almond (see link in my blog roll –  Blackwork Journey).

Each little square was then trimmed and fringed.  And, using double sided sticky tape, stuck onto card (that wasn’t strictly scraps but I had a few sheets in my stash and it was a quick mounting option).

And voilà!  37 little pretties, in festive seasonal colours that can either be hung in the tree as décorations or used a gift tags on présents!
