A wee bit of yarn and a few minutes of crocheting can make your gifts and packages extra special for the recipient!
Seeing the adorable Heart Gift Tags made by Kelly Rowe @live laugh rowe, I was inspired to make up a batch of my own.
Tiny crocheted flowers attached to a tag card with a personalized greeting and a gift tied up with a simple length of chain stitch in a matching color makes a plain package look special.
The greeting strips were made on a word document and printed onto a parchment-like paper purchased from a craft store, then cut to desired size. A glue stick was used to attach the greeting to the tag.
I found both the tan and the white tags at a local craft store.
Use your imagination to make cute appliques to decorated the tags. Make hearts, flowers, leaves or cherries in your color of choice and use a piece of yarn or twine to tie tag to package.
For a larger package you might like to add a crocheted rosette with or without accent leaves. Weave the tie through the back of the rosette before tying onto the package. I made the ties by crocheting 150-200 chains. On a smaller package, I simply wrapped around an additional time before tying into a bow. An added bonus is that the rosettes and the ties can be used over and over.
Pretty boxes can be tied up and a cute tag attached.
