Last Minute Gift Tags

Are you looking for some quick to make gift tags?  I have you covered with these last minute gift tags.  I don’t know about you but it seems that at Christmas, I am rushing to finish wrapping presents.  Since a gift needs a tag, it needs to be quick to make.  The three gift tags that I’m sharing today are quick and easy making them perfect to create last minute.  For the three tags, I decided to use different themes for each – a snowman, a pine tree and a penguin.  

  • Penguin Gift Tag: 
    • Create a tag base by cutting a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2″ x 4-1/2″ and punch one end using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  If desired, round the corners on the opposite end of the tag using the Detailed Trio Punch.  Stamp the penguin from the Playful Penguin stamp set onto the tag using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the scarf using Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Fussy cut the scarf and add to the stamped penguin using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, stamp Merriest Wishes on the front and To/From on the back of the tag using the Real Red ink.   If desired, complete by adding a ribbon or twine to the tag.
  • Pine Tree Gift Tag: 
    • Use the Pine Tree Punch to cut a tree from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper.  With the 2″ circle punch, cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock (one for the front of the tag and one for the back).  Use a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Add the Whisper White circles to scalloped circle using Snail Adhesive.   One one side, attach the Pine Tree to the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals and on the reverse stamp To/From.    Stamp the “No Peeking Til Christmas” from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set using Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Then, fussy cut around the sentiment and attach to the Pine Tree.  Tie a small ribbon to add to the top of the tree.  With a handheld punch, punch a small hole into the top of the tag.  Thread a thin ribbon or Baker’s Twine through the hole and tie.  NOTE:  the gold twine on my sample is a discontinued product but you can color Whisper White Baker’s Twine with the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend to use in place of the gold twine.

  • Snowman Gift Tag: 
    • Create the tag base by using the Delightful Tag Topper on one end of a 2″ x 4-1/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut a 1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ background piece from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Attach to the Whisper White tag base.  Using the Layering Ovals Dies, cut a snowman from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Attach to the background layer using Snail adhesive.  Stamp sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Cut using the Classic Label Punch.  NOTE: the sentiment is from the Most Wonderful Product Medley.  Or, select your favorite holiday sentiment to use.   

Though I have chosen to use three different designs, you may decide to create one style to use on your gift packages.  Whichever you prefer, the gift tags will be quick and easy to create last minute!

Cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy

 This cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy card is a recreation of the card from last year’s In-Color Club.  With the 2018-2020 In-Color Designer Series Paper retiring soon, I am creating cards to use the last of my paper stash. I am excited for the release of new Designer Series Paper but still have my retiring favorites.  It definitely screams summer and cheerfulness.  Plus it highlights the various Pineapple Punch products.  The Daisy Delight stamp set is used to stamp the top layer of daisy petals.  It is embossed with Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The 2018-2020 In-Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder is retiring so you’ll want to place your order before it’s gone.  

Pineapple Punch In-Color products with Daisy Delight Stamp Set 

 What you’ll love with the 6″ x 6″ In-Color Designer Series Paper is the various designs that you can mix and match.  Since the colors coordinate, the stripes and polka dots blend.  With the Designer Series Paper package, you’ll receive 40 sheets with 4 each of 2 double-sided designs.  The five in-colors in the package are Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel.

Instructions and project materials for you to recreate the cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy card is in the Tutorial Section on my blog.

Gingham Treat Basket

Ready for another treat project from the All About Easter class?  Today’s post, Gingham Treat Basket, highlights the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.  There are various versions of this basket style on Pinterest.  I do not recall where I saw the dimensions used but it’s a simple basket that is fun to embellish.  I love the look of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP) and selected the Lemon Lime Twist color for the basket.  To embellish the basket, the Daisy Punch was used to punch multiple daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP.  The color of the Gingham Gala DSP are perfect for Spring.  Keeping with the theme, a pick featuring the Fable Friends bunny with a crown of flowers adds the finishing touch.  

Creating the basket:
  1. Score one page of the Gingham Gala at 2″ and 4″, rotate and score again at 2″ and 4″.
  2. On one side, cut along the score lines just to the point where the score lines intersect.  Rotate paper 180° and again, cut along the score line to the point where the score lines intersect.
  3. Use a bone folder to burnish along the score lines.
  4. Cut a 1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of coordinating cardstock to use as handle.
  5. Form basket by pulling the cut pieces to the middle of the 4″ panel on each side and overlapping. Place handle atop the pieces and staple to secure.  
  6. Optional: To cover the staples inside of the basket, punch a  1″ circle punch of the gingham paper and adhere with adhesive over the exposed staples.
Embellishing the Basket:
  1. Punch four daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.
  2. Sponge the edges of each daisy using Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad and a sponge dauber.
  3. Use a bone folder to curl the daisy petals.  Layer two daisies and connect with a stampin’ dimensional. Repeat with other daisy petals (embellishment is on both sides of basket)
  4. Create daisy center using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle to cut a flower from a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Attach using a mini glue dot.  Add a Glitter Enamel Dot to the center. 
  5. Cut leaves from Lemon Lime Twist and Vellum Cardstocks using the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies. 
  6. Attach leaves to back of the daisy using mini glue dots.
  7. Use Stampin Dimensionals to attach a daisy to each basket side at the handle.   
Making the Bunny Pick:
  1. Stamp the rabbit from Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock.
  2. Color using an Aqua Painter, Crumb Cake and Lemon Lime Twist inks.
  3. Fussy cut the rabbit using paper snips.
  4. Create a crown of flowers by punching three Daffodil Delight flowers (two are solid cardstock and one is Gingham Gala DSP) using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle.  Use leaf in Bitty Blooms to punch leaves. 
  5. Attach the flowers and leaves to the rabbit using mini glue dots, slightly cupping the flowers to fit.  
  6. Add a basic rhinestone jewel to the center of each flower.
  7. On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp Enjoy (from Dear Doily) using the black ink.  Punch with 2″ circle punch so that the word is to the left side of circle with room to add the bunny.
  8. Punch a 2-1/4″ circle of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to use as base for pick.  With multipurpose adhesive, glue pick to the base. (since I wanted a pick slightly longer than a regular toothpick, I shortened a four-inch bamboo skewer to approximately 2-3/4″ by breaking off a piece from the non-pointed end)
  9. Attach the Enjoy circle to the pick base using stampin’ dimensionals.
  10. Finish by adding the bunny. The treats and paper shreds help to hold pick in place.
