The color washed daisy tags are transformed from plain shipping tags into lovely mixed-media accents for spring and summer gifts. Make a bunch to have on hand for a quick gift package topper. You could even tie them around a bottle of wine for a thank you gift.
Basic Supplies for color washed daisy tags:
paper trimmer, scissors, ruler, pencil, foam paintbrush, small disposable bowl, wax paper
(to cover work surface), heat tool, Adhesive – hot glue or glue runner
For each tag, mix one part water with one part paint in small bowl. On covered work surface,
lightly apply paint mixture to one side of tag. Repeat for back of tag; let dry completely.
(Note: Tags will curl while wet, but will flatten out as they dry. Speed dry with heat tool, if desired.)
Die cut flower layers from vintage book pages and black cardstock.
onto cotton fabric sheets; sentiments include “sweetest friend,” “thank you so much,”
“happiest birthday,” and “for someone special.”

layers to tags as shown using glue.
3. Sew straight stitch around edge of each tag, 1/8” from edge, and around each sentiment strip.
Sew directly through flower layers to secure.
