Making cork gift tags is a great way to embrace the trend of using natural materials in crafting. Cork is easy to cut with scissors or a die-cut machine, and is flexible, able to be stitched, and is easily glued to other surfaces.
I cut this cork sheet into the tag shape, and the glitter cardstock into the heart shape using my die cut machine (I use a Sizzix Big Shot). I stitched the border by hand, using embroidery floss and a large needle. Since the cork sheet is so easily pierced, I didn’t have to pre-punch holes. I used some extra floss to wrap the heart for extra interest.
I attached the cardstock heart and the heart button using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. Since I wanted some dimension, and the button needed to be raised to lay flat over the cardstock, the silicone adhesive worked perfectly. I added some double-sided adhesive letters and white flocking to add the XOXO.
I’m planning to use this tag for a Mother’s Day gift, but it would be great for an anniversary, wedding shower, Valentine’s Day as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time…
