Dyed Bird Gift Tags



Personalize a gift for someone special by using dye to make one-of-a-kind decorations from Melony Bradley. The sweet little birdies add a nice touch of color to any kind of wrapping.


  • Caged Bird Die cut by Sizzix
  • Sizzix BigShot die cutting machine
  • Dark Brown dye from Rit Dye
  • Printed summery blue and citrene fabric
  • Shipping tags
  • Embellishments
  • Dyed muslin


  1. I purchased some simple shipping tags from my local office supply store. I created a dye bath using a couple of tablespoons of Dark Brown with 1 cup hot water in a plastic container and soaked the tags in it for about 20 minutes.
  2. I love combining paper and fabric. I used my caged bird die cut from Sizzix and my Sizzix BigShot die cutting machine to get these fun birds out of fabric. I stamped sentiments using some simple rubber stamped onto fused fabric.

  3. When the tags were dry, I positioned the fabrics onto the tags.

  4. And used my sewing machine to secure the pieces in place.

  5. Pretty embellishments and some dyed muslin add a pleasing finishing touch to these Dyed Bird Tags.
