Woodland Themed Gift Tags

Hi everyone!

One of the ways to make your gift box or gift bag speical is to add a unique gift tag. They are so easy to make but make such a big impact. I recently purchased the Tattered Angels Calendar Mist Kit - Man Cave and found these mists to be perfect for the woodland tags I created for the autumn season.

The first set of tags I created features autumn leaves.

I sprayed manila tags with Simply Sheer Tangy Lime and Boardwalk Glimmer Mist. When the ink dried I used a dark brown ink to stamp the leaves onto the tag. I embellished the tags with ribbon, twine and burlap ribbon.

The next set of tags is a bit more rustic:

I sprayed the tags with Boardwalk Glimmer Mist as well as the Simply Sheer Rich Brown Mist. After the tags were dry, I stamped the leaves and botanical images in a variety of brown inks. Really striking, don't you think! Again, I added burlap ribbon, canvas scraps and twine to add to the rustic look.

The final set of tags is done a wonderful blue ink.

This time I misted the tags with Navy Blue Glimmer Mist. Such a great color!! I then stamped each tag with a winterberry stamp using a dark blue ink. I used dark blue seam binding and burlap ribbon to embellish each tag.

Gift tags are such a great way to add interest and that special touch to your packages! These tags were so fun to create and I loved playing with the different spray mist colors.
