How To Make a Unique Gift Tag

This might look familiar to some of you. This star tag was shown in the "rethinking paper lucky stars" post. Someone recently requested the directions for it so I created a tutorial. Here goes..

Lucky star paper (cut to about 3-4 inches in length)
mini brads
embroidery thread or string

click on the picture to enlarge and see the steps/directions better

* For a personal touch write directly on one of the tails.
Exp. Happy Mother's Day, Love Jessica!

Hey! That works so much better than trying to squish a Japanese puffy star, soesn't it? *why hadn't I thought of that before???*
Thanks for the cute-as-a-button-button!

Perfect timing on this! I am going to a baby shower on Monday and this bow will be absolutely perfect on the package I'm taking. Thank you!
