Gift Tags and Cards

Japan is an incredibly inspiring place to live for someone who loves to make things. Everywhere you look they have gorgeous examples of pottery, origami, tie-dye, embroidery, flower arranging, sewing and so much more.

Supplies are easy to find - near where I first lived in Japan (Akashi) there was a massive craft store with 7 floors of every crafting supply you could possibly need. Later when I visited Tokyo I found that this store was spread across several buildings!

The beautiful fabrics and paper turned me into a bit of a hoarder, but I have been slowly making my way through my collection. Sometimes it is very hard to use something as it is just so pretty!

Inspired by a garland I bought in Japan, I made the gift tags below. I think they are a cute alternative to the usual gift tag. I actually bought the blue paper here in Australia - it was on sale and I couldn't resist it!
