Handmade gift tags offer such a lovely finishing touch to presents and are match made in heaven with our leftover soap wraps.
This is an easy craft for all ages and so satisfying to transform paper destined for the recycling bin into an individual gift tag.
Get creative with colour and pattern - you can't go wrong. We're sure your friends and family will love them receiving as much as you love making them.
We use a very simple template like the one opposite, it makes cutting out so much easier than a fiddly design.
Design your own or print this one out to get started.
Once you have cut out your base card, the rest is straightforward: a good selecton of papers to cover one side, but you could try anything from fabric to paints and dried flowers, glue and a hole punch.
This piece of card came from the recycling box
Working in the soapery these past weeks has been a very strange and slightly surreal experience. This new routine of skirting around each other can sometimes be quite frustrating and we often wonder when we can start behaving normally again.
To give ourselves a break, Emily and I decided to do something a little different and spend a very enjoyable afternoon crafting together. At opposite ends of the table (2 metres apart of course), we cut, snipped and pasted our paper offcuts to make a new stack of gift tags.
Ok, maybe this wasn’t the most productive use of our time, but in terms of our mental health - amazing! We have more “crafternoons” planned, and dream of the day we can open our doors and welcome people to join us.
