IC#50- Wooden Gift Tags

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was to create some gift wrapping.  I was stumped for most of the week.  I love creative wrapping but couldn't seem to think of anything this week.  Finally yesterday I started playing around with some scrabble tiles and came up with an idea for some personalized gift tags.

I combined the scrabble tiles with some wooden apples I had in my craft stash.  I started by painting them and gluing on the tiles.

Then I added some glitter for a little pizazz.  Finally, I added a wire loop.  This can be used to attach the apples to the gift and later to hang on a tree as an ornament.

  1. What a cool idea! You come up with some of the most fun projects!!!

  2. I love what you came up with Jenny! The glitter definitely ads a degree of specialness to them. That would make a great addition to teacher gifts too!

  3. You must have a great craft stash!

  4. Cute!! I love that it doubles as a gift tag and an ornament. This would make a great teacher gift.

  5. Cute idea. Fun that you had everything on hand, too!

  6. the gift tags worked out great! What a great idea! {:-D
