TIMELESS TIDING TAGS

I think a gift is much more personal if it includes a handmade gift tag.  Daughter Debbie and I had fun creating these and now you can make them for your gifts.

 11.21.18 Cookie Cutter Tags

We have precut assorted colors of card stock to 5 X 2”.  This size fits the Banner Triple Punch and the 3 topper punches.  In this image, you can see 2 of the topper punches I have.  You can cut a different color slightly smaller piece of cs as I have done with the white here.  The second color is 4 7/8 X 3 3/4 – 4” and is finished with an edging punch.

The Cookie Cutter gingerbread people are some of my favorites and they make such a cute tag! The stamps are available for several hats, hat trim, bow ties, and buttons.  A small circular sentiment was added and the “To and From” message is on the back side of the tag.

11.21.18 hand colored tagI must admit that this is my favorite gift tag.  It is from the Many Blessings stamp set.  The images were stamped with Memento black and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The “MERRY Christmas” stamp is included in the set.  I tried to choose the available Baker’s Twine to coordinate with some aspect of the card.  The Baker’s Twine can also be colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The “To and From” sentiment is on the back of these tags.

 

 

11.21.18 Snowmen tagsIf you are into punch art, this is the tag for you!  Santa faces are created from assorted punches, glimmer paper, and googley eyes.  We trimmed this tag to make it a bit shorter.  The Santa face could be moved lower and the “To and From” sentiment could be placed on the front or the back. 

 

 

 

11.21.18 Snowman tags Snowmen also make cute gift tags.  These are also punch art creations, but are a bit simpler to punch and make than the Santa faces.  The Snowman smile is actually punched from small circle punches and/or balloon punches.  The hat is formed from a small square punch and the word window punch.

 

 

 

 

 

11.21.18 Reindeer tagsIf you want to make a fast tag or two – choose the reindeer.  This is a very simple gift tag.  Simply punch out the reindeer and star either in glimmer or metallic cs or a mixture of the two.  A simple “To and From” punched and layered on coordinating glimmer cs and you are almost done.  I added 3 strands of 6” copper cording to the left image and 2 strands of 8” Baker’s Twine to the right image. 

 

 

 

11.21.18 Odd tagsI will admit I was “fooling” around with these 2 tags.  The tree tag is pretty simple.  The Washi tape was colored with the Shaded Spruce Stampin Blend to coordinate. The penguin tag has a very busy Washi Tape background.  I took a basic tag and I punched the banner and topper.  I then took a second basic tag, punched it to match and adhered the two together.  This way the tag was neat and the messy Washi tape backing was hidden. 

11.21.18 Snowflake tag

The snowflake tag is our final idea.  These are retired wood or plastic snowflakes that are adhered to a double tag.  The Wood Textures DSP is perfect for this wintry tag.  It is backed with a regular cs tag to provide the weight to handle to heavier snowflakes.  This is a very quick and easy tag!  The “To and From” message is on the back. 

These tags are ideas from Daughter Debbie and me.  There are other punches that can be used and lots of paper.  Try to think “out of the box” and see what you can come up with.  Debbie went thru my miscellaneous drawer and pulled lots of embellishments you can use to make tags with, in addition to our ideas. 

You can do all tags, all calendars, do all stained glass window cards – the choice is yours.  I just ask that you let me know when you may be coming and if you wish to do the stained glass window cards – how many of which one.  As a reminder, December Stamp Camp is being held on Thursday November 29th from 12 Noon to 7 PM, Friday November 30 from 2 – 7 PM, and Saturday December 1st from 9 AM – 4 PM.  The cost is $12 and covers whatever you choose to make.  Soda and water and some type of goodies will be provided for your enjoyment. 

I have decided to take the month of January off from Stamp Camp.  The craft room needs a major overhaul and I HATE the cold weather.  So, our next Stamp Camp will be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, February 7, 8 and 9.  We will have a Valentine plus everyday theme.  I will be putting out a 2019 calendar in January and will keep you advised of Stampin’Up specials.  Your new Occasions Catalog and Stampin’Up Sale-A-Brations brochure will be arriving in December.

Have a wonderful Christmas!  Rosemary – ( H )630.759.3089 – ( C )630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
