Make Gift Giving Special with Handmade Tags!

 --- Hello, crafty friends! ---
 My grandma always taught me that when it comes to gifts, presentation matters. Each year she spent time making beautiful tags and labels for her Christmas gifts. Grandma didn't have much money so her gifts were always very modest, but the way they were packaged made them each very special. I still have her tiny tags with handmade holly leaves and miniature felt mittens connected by colorful thread, and I hang them on our Christmas tree each year. I don't remember many of the gifts she gave me over the years, but I sure remember her beautiful packaging because it was handmade with so much love.

If you'd like to add a handmade touch to your gifts, we've got you covered! Pat and Maggie have teamed up again this year with not one but TWO wonderful and completely different tag classes for the holidays. In each class you'll make 15 beautiful tags using a variety of fun techniques. The tags are perfect to tie onto gifts or hang on your tree!  See details below then call us at (515) 965-1102 to sign up for one or both classes!
