People often use Spoonflower to print their own quilt tags, or tags for clothing they make, but until this year we hadn't seen many examples of the use of our fabric for gift tags. So, inspired by a boom in lovely tag designs, we decided to hold a contest around the idea. Keep in mind that now gift tags can, in most cases, be ordered on peel & stick wall decal material as well as cotton. The winner of our contest this week is <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/amel24">Amel24</a>, a New York surface designer whom regular readers will probably have spotted in the top 10 on many previous contests. Congratulations to her and to the rest of the top 10 finishers!
