This is the month of new chart releases for me.
Behold! Accept This Trifle Gift Tag!
In a land before time - somewhere in Ohio in November - Kelmscott Designs and I were discussing a round shape. She sent it to me.
It sat there looking at me from a corner in my sewing room.
Christmas ornament? Frisbee? Yoyo?
I believe it was three am when lightening struck my brain. I had an apostrophe! Or is it an epiphany?
This round shape would make a great giant gift tag!
Accept This Trifle came to being.
Of course it is double sided because what is a gift tag if there isn't a TO and a FROM?
I loved the idea of old fashioned names. Gertrude is one of my favorites.
Now, Becky! you may be thinking, my name isn't Polly and I haven't known anyone named Gertrude for at least a hundred years.
I did actually think of that (MIRACLE) so I have a sheet in the chart that has the To and the From plus the flower but the rest of it is blank so you can chart your names! Additional miracles occurred and I remembered to put in the entire alphabet upper and lower case.
When finishing the project it looked a little plain so I added huge rick rack under the linen piece and it really jazzed it up. A piece of crinkled black seam tape threads through the hole at the top and is a cute hanger for your tag.
How to personalize your gift tag for that special someone. It's easy.
Get a sharp pencil and start counting and scribbling your names in the blanks! Luke wanted to send a gift to his dear old dad that has ten letters in his name. His Jedi training did not fail him and with a wave of his hand it was done!
Never fear, you can get any name of any size in this project!
You can get the chart here and I also have the gift tag blanks in my shop!
Even I am wondering how many movie and literary references are in this post......
