This gurl thinks makin' little notebooks from hang tags is a lotta fun! You can give them as sets or use them as an actual tag on a gift.
What you'll need: Hang tags, brads, hole punch (I used one with a smaller hole than the standard hole punch--you can also use a tapestry needle to punch a hole big enough for the brad), bone folder and string. Of course, you'll need some paper and a scissor to cut the paper. You'll need your sewing machine too if you plan on sewing down the middle. Use a leather needle to sew through all the paper layers. You can also sew the paper to the tag by hand or use a stapler.
First, fold the hang tag so the bottom edge matches up to the bottom of the hole in the tag.
Punch a hole in the middle about a half inch from the bottom edge.
Insert the brad into the hole and secure.
Cut a piece of twine, insert it into the hole and secure it by tying a knot.
Cut some paper to fit inside the tag.
Fold the paper in half and trim any excess.
Insert the paper into the folded portion of the tag.
Sew down the middle of the tag and paper to secure it. i used a leather needle to sew through the paper and tag.
Decorate the front by stamping, attaching pretty paper, photos or whatever you'd like! Fold your little notebook in half and twist the twine around the brad.
Make some more! Enjoy!
