Gift Tag

Jennifer Grace's Refresh Your Craft & Soul weekend blog event began earlier today, however I just logged on and read the welcome post less than an hour ago. There will be numerous posts throughout the weekend with crafts, tutorials, challenges, tips, a blog hop, and giveaways, but I haven't gotten past that first post because I just had to stop and create a gift tag inspired by her first inspiration piece and tips to use a pocket card as a base, add sentiments, and finish off with a twine bow.

Earlier today I had purchased a high school graduation gift for a sweet teenage friend of mine, so I pulled my pink bin (because pink is her second favorite color) and set to work. I actually glued two pocket cards together (the back one has pink hearts) and added two strips of glitter ribbon to start (because glitter is her first favorite color!). Here's what I ended up with.


Now that I have the tag completed and the gift wrapped, I'm off to check out more posts over on Jennifer Grace's blog. Will you be joining in this weekend?

Ahhh! What a sweet tag, and it goes so nicely with your bag. Now, there's an organised lady who can put her finger on whatever she needs at the drop of a hat.

That's a perfect take on her inspiration. Maybe I will go dig out some pockets myself.

This is amazing, I'm so glad it inspired you and that it was the first thing your friend noticed when you gave her the gift! Yours is a very pretty version, I like the glitter tape best - I've never thought about it before, but I guess glitter is my favourite colour too! Thanks for sharing! x
