We're not Giving Candy Canes

Every year at the end of the school year the kids receive a lot of Candy Canes from their class mates. Last year we gave little felt Christmas trees ornaments complete with google eyes and smiley faces.

This year they will be giving these guys, felt like I made a million of them, but they are pretty cute! Hoot!

Teacher Gift Ideas

School is nearly over and it's that time to start thinking about what to give the teachers. Last year I made up some Tea Wallets with tea bags and baked some cookies. It was fun because the kids got to choose the fabrics they thought their teacher would like. Very soon you'll see the gifts we'll be giving our teachers this year.

Fabric Gift Tag Tutorial

Fabric Gift Tag Tutorial

With the Christmas Holidays so close I decided to do a tutorial for some fantastic Fabric Gift Tags that will adorn your holiday parcels. It is a no sew tutorial, for all my friends that don't sew!

Here's what you'll need -

  • Gorgeous Fabric - mine was supplied by
  • Fusible Webbing (vliseofix)
  • Cardstock
  • Ribbon
  • Rotary cutter or scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Ruler
  • Iron
Cut Fusible webbing to size desired, each finished tag measures 2” x 3”, so if you want to make 12 tags cut 6” x 12”

Iron Fusible webbing (vliseofix) onto wrong side of fabric. Make sure the glue side of Fusible Webbing is on the fabric or you will have a sticky mess on your iron. Cut fabric to measured fusible webbing. Peel off the paper.

Place fabric on cardstock, printed side of fabric up and iron in place.

Cut into strips 2” strips then cut into 3” rectangles

Use a hole punch to carefully make a hole for ribbon or string. You may find that the fabric gets caught a little in the hole punch, gently snip with sharp scissors. Cut the corners of one end for a real tag look.

Attach ribbon, write a lovely message on the back and attach to your parcel!
