How to make branding labels/tags

 For my other shop, Howes It Sewing, I was looking into how to create branding labels. I did not know how to create tags and I surprised to see that there was quite little amount of tutorials on how to do the type of labels I was interested in. 

So to figure them out, it took quite a bit of trial and error, but I’m happy to say that I did figure it out in the end and I now have some awesome looking, and professional, tags!

And now that I figured it out, I’m going to share what I learned with all of you!

What I used:

  • Satin ribbon with a woven edge
  • Cricut machine and supplies, including iron

I found my biggest problem in trying to figure out these labels was the fraying, no matter what I did the ribbon always frayed! In the end, what I realized was the the woven edges of the ribbon could stay as the sides and I could fold the ribbon over to have both of the raw edges on the inside of the seam. All I had to do was buy a wider ribbon.

Yes I know it seems simple enough but yeah it was not easy to figure out!

After I figured that out, all I had to do was choose my elastic width, cut some iron-on material with my cricut, weed it, press it onto the ribbon with my iron and sew it into the seam as a loop. 

For sewn over hem tags, all I did was keep the woven edges as the sides, fold over the edges that fray underneath on the inside and sew around the square.
