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.

Quick and Easy Gift Tag

It’s such fun to give small “thinking of you” gifts and the 3″ x 6″ gusseted cellophane bags from Stampin’ Up! are the perfect size for such purpose.  Naturally, the gift bag needs a gift tag and the one on the project below is quick and easy.  This project is perfect for using up scraps of cardstock.  Since we’re celebrating the arrival of Fall soon, leaves in Fall colors are used to embellish the tag.  The Gather Together Bundle includes the Gather Together Stamp Set and the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Can you see the dimension in the leaves?  The dies not only cut but emboss!  Details for creating the tag are listed below the project photo.

Treat Bag with Fall Leaves Tag

Card Details:
  • To create tag base, cut a 1-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  On one end of the cardstock, use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to create the tag.  Use the corner rounder section on the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges on the opposite end of the tag.
  • On the tag, stamp the large leaf from the Gather Together Stamp Set using Pear Pizzazz Classic Stampin’ Pad.  
  • Next, use the three leaves dies to cut a leaves from scraps of Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze cardstock.  One leaf in each color was cut.  TIP: By first lightly spritzing the cardstock with water and then cutting with the dies.   The embossed impression is much deeper.  Plus when the cardstock dries, the edges of the leaves curl just as Fall leaves curl.  
  • While the leaves are drying, stamp the sentiment from the Parcels and Petals Stamp Set (in the Annual Catalog) onto the tag using Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad.
  • Once the cut leaves are dry, sponge Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink onto each leaf.  Layer the leaves onto the tag below the sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • After adding your treats to the 3″ x 6″ cellophane bag, fold top over approximately 3/4″ and secure with a staple.  Fold 3″ x 2″ piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper in half and secure to the bag by using Snail Adhesive on each side of fold.  (you are sandwiching the bag top inside the Designer Series Paper)
  • Finish by adding the gift tag to the bag with Mini Stampin Dimensionals and add a Cajun Craze Linen Thread bow using a mini glue dot.
