Tulip Gift Bag with Coordinating Tag

In this month’s class, one of the projects created is a Tulip Gift Bag and coordinating tag.  I love it when there is a designer series paper that coordinates with a stamp set and either dies or as with the Timeless Tulips Bundle, a punch.  The bag uses the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper, which is from of the Coordination Product Release.  The paper is wonderful as it coordinates with multiple stamp bundles.  Naturally, the small gift bag needs a coordinating tag.  The Timeless Tulips stamp set and the tag die from the Bonanza Dies combine to create a perfect gift tag.  Details for creating both are below the project’s photo. 

Tulip Gift Bag and Tag

Creating the Tulip Gift Bag:
  1. From the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper, cut the tulip paper 6″ x 8″.  Be sure to pay attention to the direction of the tulips.
  2. On the 8″ side score at 2-1/2″, 3-3/4″, 6-1/4″ and 7-1/2″.  Rotate 90° (make sure that the tulips are facing toward the right) and score at 1-1/4″.  
  3. Fold along score lines and trim along score lines up to the 1-1/4″ score line.  Cut and remove the 1/2″ tab. See the photo below – dotted lines are score lines:
  4. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the 1/2″ tab, fold over to close the side creating the bag.  
  5. Fold in bottom flaps and seal.  Be sure the small flaps are folded in first and then overlap with the larger flaps.
  6. Pinch together and use a Mini Library Clip to seal.
For the coordinating tag:
  1. With the tag die from the Bonanza Dies to cut a 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Using the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, stamp two small tulips with Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad at the top of the tag. (refer to project photo above for placement)  Stamp the large tulip with the same color onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Cut with the coordinating Tulip Builder Punch.
  3. Stamp three stems using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad.
  4. Add the large tulip onto the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals, slightly overlap the smaller tulips.
  5. Use the Tulip Builder Punch to cut a leaf from a scrap of the reverse side (green pattern) of the Pleased As Punch designer series paper.  Adhere to tag under the large tulip with a mini glue dot.
  6. Stamp the sentiment with the Calypso Coral onto a 3″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Cut using the shape using the Ornate Frames Dies.  Attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Tie a knot bow using 6″ of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon.  Complete the tag attaching the bow below the large tulip using a mini glue dot.  

What did we put in the gift bag? A wrapped Rice Krispies Treat Bar!  It fit perfectly.  Be sure to comment below and let me know what you plan to place in your gift bag.

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!

Time is running out for Holiday shipping so place your orders soon.  Note – many of the products used will not be available after January 2, 2020.  Therefore, be sure to order your favorites so you’ll have them for future use.

Wrapped In Plaid 3-D Gift Tag

Ready for another another embellished store bought item?  While shopping recently, I spied a set of plaid Christmas tree dish towels.  Immediately, I thought of the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (DSP) and how easy it would be to create a coordinating gift tag for the dishtowels.  Okay, I know you’re thinking that I must be crazy when shopping to think of things that coordinate with Stampin’ Up! products.  Maybe I am just a bit but you have to admit, the dishtowels coordinate perfectly with the Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  The Pine Tree Punch and the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set were also used.  Save 10% by purchasing the punch and stamp set as a bundle. By creating a Wrapped in Plaid 3-D Gift Tag, the dishtowel has become a simple, inexpensive gift to present during this season of giving.  

Steps to make a Wrapped in Plaid 3-D Gift Tag:
  • Create a tag base using 2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  Punch one end with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  Round the corners on the bottom of the tag with the Detailed Trio Punch. 
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″.  Use the Detailed Trio Punch, to round the four corners.  Stamp HO HO HO from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set onto the bottom section of the Whisper White cardstock panel using Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Attach to the tag base using Snail Adhesive. If desired, cut another piece of the Whisper White cardstock to add to the back of the tag and stamp with a To/From stamp.
  • Use the Pine Tree Punch to cut 3 trees from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  TIP:  punch two from the “front” side of the paper and one from the “back or reverse” side.  By doing this, the trees will align properly.  Score down the center of each of the punched pine trees and fold.  Attach one side of each of the trees to one another using multipurpose liquid adhesive.  Be sure to align the tree branches so they match.  After creating the tree, attach to the tag above the HO HO HO.  Embellish tree top with a Red Rhinestone.  See photos below on how to punch and assemble.

  • If you are using the tag to embellish a dish towel, tie around towel using the Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon.  Tie three Jingle Bells together with Whisper White Baker’s Twine and wrap around knot of the ribbon bow.

When shopping, look for some dishtowels to embellish as a quick and easy gift.  I found the towel for this project at TJ Maxx and the dishtowel came in a package of two towels.

Harvest Hellos Gift Tag

For today, I’m taking a break from Christmas theme projects and sharing a Harvest Hellos Gift Tag.  For recent team gifts, members received a Bath & Body Works hand soap.  The apple in the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set along with the Apple Builder Punch coordinate perfectly with the Afternoon Apple Picking label.  Don’t you just love it when store bought items coordinate with your stamps and dies?  Both of the items can be purchased in the Harvest Hellos Bundle for a 10% savings.  For the colorful background leaves, the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is cut with the Gathered Leaves Dies provides perfect Fall leaves.

Here’s a close-up of the gift tag:

Steps to create the Harvest Hellos Gift Tag:
  • First, create a tag base using a 3-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock and the Delightful Tag Topper Punch or the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. 
  • From the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper. select the desired colors.  Then, cut one large leaf, two medium leaves and one small leaf from the designer series paper using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Also, use the dies to cut a medium size, solid leaf from a scrap of Mossy Meadow cardstock. 
  • From the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set, stamp the apple using Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Punch the apple shape using the Apple Builder Punch and punch a stem from a scrap of Early Espresso cardstock.  Attach the stem to the apple using a mini glue dot.
  • Notice the small leaves around the apple stem?  One small leaf was cut from an Old Olive Foil Sheet found in the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets.  After cutting the leaf with the Gathered Leaves Dies, 2 portions were cut to use around the apple stem.  Attach to the apple using mini glue dots.
  • To stamp the sentiment, use the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp set and Mossy Meadow Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp onto a 1/2″ x 2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  After stamping, cut an inverse “v” to create the flag end.
  • Next, layer the leaf elements onto the Crushed Curry Tag base.  When you are satisfied with the placement, attach to the tag base using Snail adhesive.  Add sentiment to apple.  Then, add the apple atop the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To complete the tag, attach a Linen Thread bow.  For attaching to the gift, use Braided Linen Trim.
Hope you enjoyed this gift tag project.  Tip:  When making tags, it’s the perfect time to use your scrap papers.

Fun Fall Gift Tag

I’m back and featuring a fun Fall Gift Tag project.  It’s one of those projects that appears to be more difficult than it is.  Did you miss me?   Last week was one of those weeks!!!  The week began great with Stampin’ Bingo on Monday but after a fun filled day, the things seem to so haywire.  At times I felt like I was a hamster in a wheel, going round and round but not advancing!  I think we all have had such an experience at some point and it was my turn to go round and round last week.  So, I decided to take a few days off with no blogging.  It was refreshing to take a break.  Good thing is this week has begun fantastic so I’m no longer “in the wheel” and am excited to share a project from Stampin’ Bingo.  

I am a huge fan of Bath & Body Works products and often give their products as gifts.  Naturally, a gift must be wrapped or embellished.  So today’s product, hand soap, is bagged and embellished with a fun Fall gift tag.  Since the hand soap is Pumpkin Apple, the Gather Together Bundle and the Harvest Hellos Bundle combine to fit the product’s theme.  

Fall Gift Tag

Below is a closer view of the tag…

I just love combining the two bundles, Gather Together and Harvest Hellos.  They coordinate well together.  Since the name of the hand soap is Pumpkin Apple, I could have incorporated an apple instead of a pumpkin!  Harvest Hellos is full of versatility.  

Have fun creating a gift tag for your favorite Fall scents!  The items used for today’s fun Fall gift tag are listed under Project Materials.
