More Scrappy Tree Gift Tags

My handmade holiday gift tag making is still underway.  I'm having too much fun to stop!
 
Even the tiniest scraps can make something useful! Wee triangles become trees when stacked and stitched to a canvas background using free motion embroidery. Tags are backed with quilting cotton that has been interfaced, then sewn to the canvas.

 I couldn't resist stitching up another collection of the scrappy tree tags using tiny triangles (trimmed from making half square triangle units).  These really are the easiest tags to make and such a great way to use up pretty scraps!

Handmade Gift Tag Labelling

Hoping my handmade gift tags are inspiring you to try making some of your own. 
 
Fourth in my series of "trim the tree" gift tags, this one has printed ribbon and a piece of twill tape (that I stamped) as the only embellishments.

Trim the Tree Handmade Gift Tag

Reverse applique trees made by combining cotton scraps with a linen background make for easy gift tag idea.  Fusible web secures the cotton to the linen and then edge stitching adds a bit of whimsy.
 
Linen + cotton always looks great! A treasured bit of lace tucked into a side seam adds a special touch to this tag.
