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.

Winter Wonders

The holiday season will be here before we know it. And along with putting up the Christmas tree and spending snowy nights by the fire, you can enjoy Winter Wonders with Christmastime papercrafts.  There’s something about the holidays that brings out the crafter in all of us. Even non-crafters like making simple and fun projects to celebrate the season. And since “simple and fun” is Paper Pumpkin’s middle name, they have come up with two Winter Wonder kits.  To kick things off, in October and November Paper Pumpkin is offering back-to-back coordinating kits.  One of the kits comes with Christmas cards, the other with Christmas tags.  Both kits make it easy for you to add a handmade, personal touch to your holiday giving—without a lot of fuss. It’s Christmas made easy with Paper Pumpkin!

  • November Kit details: Makes 24 holiday-themed gift tags of 4 various sizes and designs. The coordinating colors are Early Espresso, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, and Shaded Spruce

Team Gifts

Each month, the two Playtime with Paper team members with top sales receive a special thank you gift from me.  Most recently, the top two team members received team gifts of 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots and a yard of each of the 1/2′ Scalloped Linen Ribbons in the five new In Colors.  Instead of a card, a tag was created to add to the cellophane bag holding the goodies.  So, I decided to use the Wiggle Worm stamp set and coordinating Wiggly Worm dies for the tag.  Did you know, you can save 10% when purchasing the Wiggle Worm Bundle?  Just look, how stinkin’ cute are those bugs?!  In addition to the cute bugs, the sayings in the stamp set are appropriate for lots of occasions.  

Tag Details:
  1. For creating tag base,  layer  a 2″ x 4″ piece of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper onto a 2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  To adhere the two layers, use multipurpose glue.  For the tag top, use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Finally, round the corners on bottom of tag with the Detailed Trio Punch.
  2. Use the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut a piece of watercolor paper.  Using an aqua painter and Balmy Blue ink, color a sky background onto the watercolor paper.  Let dry.
  3. Select desired bug stamps and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Color with Stampin’ Blends markers.  Use the coordinating color of Classic Stampin’ Pad to stamp the bug lines.  In my samples, Mango Melody Light and Dark Blends color the beetle.  To stamp the lines on the beetle’s body, use the Mango Melody Classic Ink Pad.  For the dragonfly, Daffodil Delight Light Stampin’ Blend colors the body with the wing decor stamped with the Daffodil Delight Classic Ink Pad.
  4. After coloring, use the coordinating bug dies to cut each bug.
  5. Stamp the grass onto the watercolor paper label using Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad and the sentiment using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.
  6. To attach both the watercolor label and the bugs, use Stampin’ Dimensionals .
  7. For an extra touch, cut 2 sets of leaves using the Leaf Punch.  Select color that coordinates with the Designer Series Paper.   For a crumpled appearance, lightly spray water onto the leaves using a Stampin’ Spritzer.  While cardstock is damp, pinch leaves between fingers.  Allow to dry and then attach to tag under the label as shown in photos of gifts.  For a bit of bling, add 3 rhinestones clustered together to form a flower on the base of the top leaves.  Use the 3/16″ Linen Braided to tie the tag to the cellophane bag. 

The bugs were loads of fun to make!  Thus, I stamped and cut more bugs to have ready for other projects.  Just stamp, color and cut to have extras available to use.

Easy Treat Holder

One of the make ‘n takes from the Open House is this easy treat holder.   A 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag holds the treat.  However, a plain bag is no fun to receive!  In the new Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog, the Time for Tags host stamp set is perfect for creating quick and easy tags.  The stamp set includes a variety of tags and sentiments to use.  Thus, you can create tags for a variety of projects.   The set is on page 206 in the catalog.  To easily cut the tags, use the coordinating Timeless Label Punch.  With this set, you can create multiple tags quickly.  Just stamp, color and punch!

Project Details:

For the tag on this project, stamp the tag using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto a  2-3/4″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Since Stampin’ Write Markers are used, it’s important to use Stazon so that the ink doesn’t smear. (Remember, if using Stampin’ Blends to color, use Memento Tuxedo Black.)  Color using the following Stampin’ Write Markers:  Balmy Blue for the bird, Daffodil Delight for beak, Real Red for heart, Granny Apple Green for leaves, Soft Suede for branch.  After coloring, punch the tag shape using the Timeless Label Punch.  Creating tags couldn’t be easier.  

To finish the project, insert treat into the cellophane bag.  To create closure, fold over bag top and using a handheld punch, create two holes approximately 1-1/4″ apart.  Thread 1/8″ Grapefruit Grove ribbon through all layers and tie.  For attaching the tag to the bag,  use Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Since the Gusseted Cellophane Bags come in a quantity of 25, the bags are great for creating treats for school classes!

Because the Time for Tags stamp set is a Host Set, contact me (CreativeStampingwithMargaret@gmail.com) to learn how you can order this set.
