Wanting a way to gussy up your holiday gift wrapping that requires a minimal amount of time and effort? These Sparkly Fabric Gift Tags are just the ticket! Each takes only a few minutes to make, yet the statement they make on any wrapped gift will make everyone think you are a gift-wrapper extraordinaire. Today I’m going to show you how easily these little gems come together with the help of a fun new product: Tulip Shimmer Sheets.
For this project, you will need…
- Fabric in assorted patterns and colors
- Double-sided fusible Peltex (a very heavy-weight stabilizer)
- Washable ink marker
- Pinking shears (optional; you can also use regular shears)
- Coordinating thread
- Tulip Fashion Glitter Transfer Sheets
- Hole Punch
- Baker’s twine
Now the fun part: embellishing the tags! There is something about the holidays that makes me want to really pull out all of the glittery stops, but I’ll be honest: I am not a fan of the mess of glittered projects, especially with four very curious sets of little hands around. I was really excited, then, when I received two packages of Tulip Fashion Glitter Sheets. These sheets, which come in glittery and holographic styles in an assortment of holiday-worthy colors, allow you to add a glittery or metallic finish to fabric projects without having to deal with the hassle of traditional glitter. Just cut, place on a project, and iron on. I am sold!
I was particularly excited when I saw that the sheets could be cut out with die cutting machines. I decided to use some of my favorite Christmas dies and my manual die cutter to cut out some fun shapes to adhere to my gift tags.
One thing I discovered is that the manual cutter had a hard time cutting all the way through the glitter material, even when I ran it through a couple of times. To remedy this issue, I carefully tore along the lines created by the die cutter to remove my shapes.
For my more detailed shapes, a few of my features fell off as I was separating the shapes from the rest of the sheet. If that happens to you, save all of the pieces, and you can simply join them together before the ironing step later on. Easy solution!
Now, iron the shapes onto your prepared tags according to the product instructions, and then use a hole punch to make a hole at the top of your tag. Thread a piece of twine through the hole, and tie into a bow to secure to the package of your choice.
These tags make a sparkly statement on wrapped packages, but they would also be great used as Christmas ornaments, too!
Once you see how easy these are to make, you’ll probably want to make enough for all of your packages this year!
