Personalized Gift Tags

 

Iron-on thread lets you quickly and easily personalize gift tags, which the recipient can use as an ornament in years to come. We found metal-rim tags at an office supply store, making this project come together even more quickly.

 

Materials needed:

  • Kreinik Iron-on Medium #16 Braid in Red, Gold, or Green

  • Kreinik Treasure Tape, 1/2" roll (double-sided tape)

  • Metal-rim tags (from an office supply store, or the scrapbooking department of your local craft store) -  note: the larger the size, the better

  • scraps of Christmas fabric, rick rack, Christmas buttons or jingle bells

  • home iron or mini craft iron

  • Adhesive Press Cloth to cover the plate of your iron (to keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to the iron)

Instructions:

Before you begin, cover your cool iron with the Adhesive Press Cloth to create a non-stick plate surface.

  1. Lay the double-sided Treasure Tape on the metal-rim tag. Leave the pink liner on for now.

  2. Meanwhile, turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly. Cut fabric scraps to the desired size. 

  3. Begin "writing" with the iron-on thread on a fabric piece. Follow a free-hand design, use computer fonts as a guide, or lightly write the name/word on the fabric to use as a guide. Lay the thread at a starting point, cover with the hot iron, and hold for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue working your design this way as desired.

  4. Add embellishments, using scraps of thread or the double-sided tape, as desired. We added a jingle bell at the top, and attached a snowflake button at the bottom with sewing thread. Lay fabric, ribbons, etc as desired using the double-sided tape.

  5. When decorating is complete, remove the pink tape liner on your metal-rim tag, then lay your decorated piece on top, pressing into the tape to secure. 

  6. Attach to your package.
