Snowflake Ribbon Tag

July is almost over and Christmas in July will come to an end.  But there are still a few projects to showcase! For this next to the last Christmas in July project, I am featuring a Snowflake Ribbon Tag.  Ribbon tags are easy to assemble and make your package beautiful.  For this ribbon tag, the So Many Snowflakes Dies are being used to create the focal point for the ribbon tag.  Five different ribbons in assorted widths and styles are used to create interest.  A list of the materials used and a video tutorial for assembly are located below.   And last but not least, the dimensions for the gift box and a link to a gift box making video are included at the end of the ribbon tag information.

Snowflake Side Fold Card

It’s always fun to find alternate folds to use for card designs.  Today’s design is a side fold shared by Patty Bennett during a team stamping event.  So, I added the fold to my “must create” fun fold list.  Using the So Many Snowflake Dies, multiple snowflakes are cut and layered to embellish the Snowflake Side Fold Card.  The Winter Snow Embossing Folder creates the perfect background for the layered snowflakes.

Side Fold Card

  • Snowflake Wishes Bundle
  • Balmy Blue cardstock: card base: 4-1/4” x 11”, score at 5-1/2” & 6-3/4”; scraps for cutting snowflakes
  • Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper: 1” x 4”
  • Whisper White cardstock: 4” x 4” (2 pieces – for front & interior)’ 1” x 3-1/2” for sentiment
  • Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – for large, medium & small snowflake
  • Winter Snow Embossing Folder
  • Misty Moonlight Classic Ink Pad
  • Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems
  • Snowflake Splendor ¼” ribbon
  • Stampin’ Seal+ Adhesive
  • Glue Dots
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine 
  • Optional: Tag Punch to cut notch for ribbon
Directions for Assembly:
  1. Fold Balmy Blue card base along fold lines. Use adhesive to seal the card front to the card back in the area between the score lines (5-1/2” to 6-3/4”).
  2. Add the strip of designer series paper to the card front (sealed section).
  3. Texture emboss one of the 4” x 4” Whisper White cardstock pieces. Attach to the card front.
  4. Snowflakes: use the snowflake dies to cut a large, medium and small snowflake from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and the Balmy Blue cardstock. After die cutting snowflakes, layer the cardstock pieces atop the glimmer paper pieces attaching with glue dots.
  5. Stamp sentiment onto strip of Whisper White cardstock using the Misty Moonlight Classic Ink Pad.
  6. Position snowflakes to the card front and attach using glue dots.
  7. Add sentiment strip using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Embellish the center of each snowflake with a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem.
  9. Finish the card by wrapping a ribbon around the left side of card, overlapping ends on front of the card. Tie a small bow using the ribbon and attaching where the ribbon overlaps on the card front.  TIP: to hold ribbon in place, use tag punch (or another punch) to cut a small notch wide enough to create a track for the ribbon

Be sure to give the side fold card design a try!  And add the Snowflake Wishes Bundle to your order, it’s a great set for winter themed cards.
