Vintage Christmas Tag Garland Tutorial

I inherited my great grandma's {Grandma Great} vintage cards. In the cards was a bag with Christmas tags, I wanted to display them... Here is what I decided to do...
Gather my supplies:
Tags, card stock, circle punch, bias tape, glue stick
Punch circles out of card stock and attach them to the back of the tag.

See the little tab it created, I didn't want to sew through the brittle tags,
Tuck tab into bias tape...

I had to do one at a time...

Sew through tab....

DONE...

I love your idea to make them into a banner, very clever and a great way to use your grandmother's cards. Good job!
