Crochet Edge Tags

First of all I would like to give credit for these fabulous tag ideas to Beca from Foxxy's Cottage.  I loved them so much that I made some for myself!!!
Thank you Beca!!!
This is my second set of crochet edge tags that I made a couple of weeks ago.  I used vintage greeting cards and some not so old, cut them to size and punched holes at the bottom for crochet edge.  The crochet patterns I simply made them up as I went along...sorry no written patterns.  It was a lot easier to crochet this time on heavy paper/cardstock...practice makes perfect!
Here are the three crochet edge tags I made for the first time!

On this particular tag after adding the crochet edge, I did not like how the holes looked (not too neat), so I covered them up with a piece of vintage ribbon.  For the strings, I simply crochet a long chain that was the right size for each tag.

These tags can actually be used for bookmarks, gift tags, or to use as a little quick note!

  1. Those are just the sweetest little tags! I can barely follow a crochet pattern, let alone make up the stitches on my own!

  2. What a nice surprise! Your tags are so pretty. You add such a nice touch. They would be lovely as bookmarks.

  3. These are beautiful, I have crocheted all around a tag to frame it but didn't think of just doing a edge on them, love this idea, will have to give it a try!

  4. Those are the prettiest tags I think I've ever seen and the crochet trim makes them even more lovely. I love the idea of using them as bookmarks, too... :)

  5. Those are the sweetest tags, Oliva! I love how I get inspired from my blogging friends.
    Also, those adorable crocheted pumpkins, plus all the other little creations are just wonderful. I'd like to make a garland of pumpkins for my mantle. Wouldn't that be cute?

  6. I love your tags! They are so pretty!

  7. Those would definitely make great book markers. You really have talent to just create those as you go!

  8. These are adorable. Since I like to read I would use them as book marks. Too cute!!

  9. Those are the sweet goodies you sent to me, which I do appreciate and enjoy!

  14. Your gift tags are the sweetest things edged with the pretty crochet edgings. Funnily enough I have the same card....the one with the little boy and girl sitting together....isn't that funny.
