Checked Gift Tags

I allotted my morning time on Wednesday to gift tags, and I got 7 made, along with a note card.

This checked paper is from last year’s Crate Paper Falala pad.

Here are the backs of the tags.

You can see on the middle one there was a rogue dot from some other die cut – I got quite a nice impression.

The red snowflake is one out of the pile I had after finishing my parents’ Christmas cards.

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Crate Paper Falala, My Favorite Things Field Day, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (tag), My Favorite Things (outstitched rounded rectangle, snowflake), Reverse Confetti (holly), sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart.

Christmas Around the World Quilted Gift Tags

I bought this paper on clearance, and now I am thinking that most of it is too dark. (and I don’t have any wrapping paper that it coordinates with – when has THAT ever stopped me??!).

ANYWAY, the tags are double sided. My photos don’t match because I forgot to take the photo of the back until after dinner (in the basement – not natural light!).  The paper is really white.

Supplies:  Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World DSP, Real Red, Stardream Metallics Gold, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things (hole protector), Reverse Confetti (quilted tag), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine – Offray

Two Layer Holiday Tags

(click on any image to enlarge)

I invested in a new die set from My Favorite Things called Fold-Up Tags. What is unique with this set is that the top layer dies (3 with different bottom edge cuts) have a score line near the top that lets you fold back the top layer (neatly!) to see what is underneath after the top and bottom layers are glued together.

I used scraps from Crate Paper, Lawn Fawn, and…hmmm…that blue glitter snowflake paper…Recollections, maybe?

On the base layers I stamped “to: from”.

Supplies:  Stamps – Scrapbook.com, paper – Crate Paper FaLaLa, Lawn Fawn, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Recollections glitter (maybe!), Silver Mirror, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Real Red, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, metallic cord – Paper Mart, twine -Offray.
