Holiday Tags

This "Delightful Decorations" stamp set is part of the Holiday Mini catalog TODAY Sept. 1 release! Cool AND a punch to go with the stamp, too! No hand cutting: Yippee! The tags are part of the SU Exclusive die: "Two Tags" . The Gift tag is pre-slit and pre-scored. The longer tag which also can be a book mark has the "stitching lines" along the tag.

Here is a closer look at the Book mark: The ribbon - Yup, also available as of Sept. 1: it's called "Ribbon Originals: Mistletoe" Like the Rhinestone Brad?

Here's the stamped ornament using the great ornament punch with a rhinestone square brad. Like the ornament hanger: it's a paper clip. Use wire cutters to cut paper clip in half and secure to ornament with dimensionals. Finish with a single knotted white taffeta ribbon.

Back of book mark. Thread ribbon through punched (Horizontal Slot) Ooops, my stamped mistake shows through.....I turned the white card stock over and re-stamped it (that's what you are suppose to do, right?)

Here's the tag: Love the Jumbo Eyelet with a punched circle back. The stamped ornament is also using the new Ornament Punch and a paper clip for the hanger. There is a Rhinestone brad on top of the "O" in "JOY". The "to/From:" tag is punched using the Modern Label punch but I decided to cut the "tips" at the right side. Both the Ornament and tag are attached using dimensionals. Stamp the snowflakes using Versamark Ink.

Here's a closer look at the ornament:

Open the tag and inside is a message stamped in Old Olive ink. See the pre-cut slit? The inside is cut 2-1/2" X 1-3/4" with the corners punched with the 1/16" corner rounder.

These are so cute. Not long and Christmas will be upon us. Don't worry about your stamp mistake, everyone in the stamping world knows there are 2 sides to paper.
