KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT
Gift Tags for Handmade Items - pack of 5
Be it crocheted, knitted or sewn, you have spent hours, maybe even days creating a beautiful item for your friend, Aunt, parent. You pass the precious item over and hope that they will appreciate the sheer amount of work that you have put into its creation, let alone the initial work that went into that ball of yarn or yard of special material. Then you cross your fingers and hope that they remember what you told them about washing and looking after the item...
Hmmm, not confident that they remembered? Good news that you can buy these gift tags then! They are small enough to be safely stored once received as a reminder of how to wash the item.
With any luck, next time you see the recipient, they will be wearing your creation in tact and in good nick. It won't be hidden at the back of the airing cupboard or masquerading in the charity shop as part of a doll's outfit.
Using the Gift Tags
Use some of the yarn, material or ribbon that you made the item from as part of the tag (put through the punched out hole) so that the lucky recipient can remember what the item was in the first place and always refer back to the tag.
Fill in the relevant parts of the tag by colouring in the applicable wash care instructions. This appears on most ball/skein bands and on the board that material is wound around. I have listed the most commonly used wash care symbols on the git tags.
Wrap the item and pass over with confidence.

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
This product was originated by me at KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT. I source 100% recycled card from a UK based converting plant in the North West of England, which sources the card from a UK fibre recycling mill. I then arrange for the sheets of card to be sent to a printer in Chester, then onto a print finisher in North Wales before the final item comes back to me, near Sandbach in Cheshire, for bundling and posting out to customers.
Postage and Packaging
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretense of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
