How To Make Stitched Notebook Paper Tags

Back-to-School time is on the horizon for us and I am attempting to get organized!  This year I would like to bring a little something special to my girls’ teachers for the first day of school.  What fits the bill better than apples?   Apples that are in a cute basket with these super cute personalized Stitched Notebook Paper Tags attached! I am all about the lovely  little details!

Stitched Notebook Paper Tags

Here is how I made these adorable Stitched Notebook Paper Tags…

Notebook Paper Tag

Supplies:

2” by 3” rectangle of white card stock
Red, White, and Blue Thread
Black and White Bakers Twine
Sewing Machine
Letter Stickers
Hole Punch

Stitched Notebook Paper Tags

Before we get started, you should know that I used the white thread underneath for all of the stitches.  I then threaded my machine with the blue thread and stitched two blue lines across the bottom and clipped the excess. Super duper easy!

Now you will thread your machine again and this time with the red thread.  Sew one line from top to bottom and clip the excess thread.  Then, you will use your hole punch in the upper left hand corner.

Now you can either hand write your teacher’s name or use some letter stickers.  I got mine from Wal-Mart. To finish up, thread your bakers twine through the hole and attach to the handle of the basket. That is all!

  1. [...] Hey y’all!   I am Trish from Uncommon and Bonnie and I are so glad to be back at Positively Splendid today! We are so grateful to Amy for having us! We have a really fun craft to share with you that is sure to get you excited about the start of a new school year! I love to have a little something for my child to bring when we go to “meet the teacher night”.  It is such a great way for the little ones to connect with their teacher right from the start and really helps with their jitters, too!  It also doesn’t hurt to let the teacher know from the get go, that you appreciate and value what they are about to do for your child.  This year I plan on them bringing a special apple basket all decked out with this fun pennant garland!  I can’t wait to show you how to make a garland of your own! Supplies: Apple Basket (I painted it turquoise with spray paint) Scrap Fabric, ruler, and scissors Ric Rac (2 lengths about 32” long) Mod Podge and a Foam Brush Glue Gun and Glue Sticks Cute Stitched Notebook Paper Tag [...]
