I have been wanting to create and share this exact project for more than 6 months now! This DIY Cross-stitch Alphabet Gift Tag is actually the project that spurred my idea for this “DIY Gift Wrap Week” – so welcome to day 4! Today I’ve teamed up with Fiskars, my favorite craft tool brand to bring you this project as I know you also love using their orange-handled tools. I love to hand sew and cross-stitch and if you’ve never tried cross-stitching before, this is a super easy and quick project that is sure to give you a sweet introduction to the craft! Each tag should take you no more than 15 minutes from start to finish and the end result will definitely impress the gift recipient. One of my favorite things to do at Christmas time is to sit by my tree, all lit up and hand sew holiday goodies – just like these tags! Don’t forget to share your versions of this project with us using the hashtag #somethingturquoisediy on Instagram and Twitter! Happy Crafting!
