Since Christmas will soon be here, I wanted to share this traditional holiday tag with you. You can create this Into the Woods Gift Tag to use on a gift bag or wrapped package. It’s perfect for all your holiday needs and can come together quickly. I love the fir tree in the Winter Woods stamp set and with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies, it creates a dimensional effect. You can also get these products in a bundle and save 10%.
First of all, just stamp two trees and use the large tree and smaller tree Dies to cut them out. With the tip of your Bone Folder, lift the tree boughs on the smaller cut piece and then attach to the larger tree with Mini Dimensionals. Lastly, add that “little extra” touch, and use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the top tree layer boughs. It’s great to see the effect on the tag.
The tag base is created by cutting two layering ovals using Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks. Stamp the greeting using Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ pad and add some gems around the base. Also, add the various ribbons to complete the traditional Christmas look. I hope these will help you to complete your final packaging and preparations as we close in on Christmas.
You can get all these items from my online store.
One of the projects from this month’s class are the Christmas Treat Bags embellished with tags. The tags use the Making Spirits Bright and Spirited Snowmen stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!. This time of year is busy with time being precious. Creating Christmas treat bags with special tags are quick to make and a joy to give. As a special treat, I baked Christmas Bulb cookies for class attendees to add to the cellophane bag with the May Your Christmas be Bright tag. Holiday M & M’s fill the bag with the snowman tag. These bags are fun to make and have on hand when you wish to give someone “just a little something”.
May Your Christmas Be Bright Tag:
The Christmas cookie bag tag uses the Making Christmas Bright stamp set. Stamp the sentiment with Real Red and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pads onto Whisper White cardstock. Do you notice the cookie icing colors? They just so happen to coordinate with the tag colors! The cookie fits perfectly inside the 3″ x 6″ cellophane bag. Create a touch of bling using the Christmas Bulb Builder punch to cut the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer paper and a scrap of Silver Foil paper creating a shiny bulb. The Detailed Trio Punch softens the edges of the Real Red Cardstock tag base and the sentiment layer. Finish the tag by punching a hole with the 1/8″ handheld circle punch a tying a bow around the bag with Real Red 3/8″ cotton ribbon.
Spirited Snowman Tag:
The Snowman tag uses the Spirited Snowmen Stamp set. This has become one of my favorite snowmen stamp sets! Stamp the snowman using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the Whisper White cardstock. Cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and color the snowman image using Stampin’ Blends. The snowman in the photo colors are Call Me Clover light, Pumpkin Pie dark, Real Red light, Soft Suede light, Smoky Slate light, Basic Black dark. Or use your favorite Stampin’ Blends colors! To add a touch of glitter, use clear Wink of Stella on the rim and pom pom on the cap. The “For You” sentiment is from Snow is Glistening Stamp set (discontinued). Use the Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies to cut the Call Me Clover base layer. Finish by filling the 2″ x 8″ Cellophane Bag with your treat and use Call Me Clover 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon to tie the bag.
