Dropping off baked goods at the holidays is a welcome tradition. Why not add a festive tag to go along with the goodies? In today’s post, I’ll show you how to make some pretty farmhouse style gift tags. All you need is any kind of pine branch die cut or even some pretty holly leaf die cuts. For the tag bases, I used Paper Essentials white tags in the large size. A pop of bright, plaid ribbon and some glue dots along with a festive sentiment completes the supply list. I used a sentiment from the Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix Fall Pudgies stamp and die set.
Bold sentiments stamped in black ink can really pack a punch when you add simple pops of color as an accent. I do this with cards a lot so I wanted to also make some tags using the same technique.
The fall season is upon us and cooking and baking are a huge part of it. For today’s project, I’ll show you some cute and easy tags you can make to add a fun little accent to your homemade goodies.
As a card maker, I get a lot of my inspiration for my projects from things around me. It could be colors, textures, wallpaper, food….I love it when something stops me in my tracks and I have to quickly write down an idea from it. For today’s project, I was inspired by these vintage-style post cards I’ve had in my drawer for ages. I don’t use them, I just like to look at them, LOL! They have always reminded me of something a grandmother would have. Very comforting and happy.
Background dies are perfect for full sized cards as added texture and an additional layer. But why not add them to gift tags for the same effect? For today’s card, I’m using the versatile Hero Arts Fancy Flower Garden background die to create some easy and elegant birthday gift tags.
Die sets with various sizes of the same shape are great basics to have on hand. You have all kinds of options when you need that perfect sized circle or square or when you want to do precise layering on projects. I especially like when these types of sets have little fun details like stitching, or fun edges. For today’s project, I will be using the Framelits Dotted Tag set from Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix in a few different ways.
When creating projects, sometimes keeping it simple can really pack a punch with the right product. For these easy wine bottle tags, I took a simple design and brought it up a notch using holographic embossing powder and some brush-lettered stamps.
