Rustic Making Christmas Bright Gift Tags

December 14, 2018

Update to yesterday’s post……..Rustic Making Christmas Bright Gift Tags.

I had a great time Sunday and Monday just making more gift tags for my own use, for a few little gifts and for our local All that Matters made locally store in Twain Harte CA.

I made another version of cheery and bright holiday gift tags using the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and coordinating  Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

Additional products needed:

Stamparatus

$49.00

Sprig Punch

$18.00

 

Here are the main steps I followed when making these tags:

(Instructions are written for one tag, although I did make 5.)

  • Cut Crumb Cake card stock to 2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Punch one end using the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch
  • Set up Stamparatus using the star and the triple hanging stars  images from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set

Lay your images into position on the card stock and then flip Stamparatus plate over it/them, securing them to the plate.

Carefully ink up the images using Crumb Cake ink; lay plate on top of card stock and gently press.

You could wipe that excess ink from the plate using the wonderful dampened Simply Shammy.

 

  • Punch out three ornaments, one each of Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody and Cherry Cobbler classic inks.
  • Punch out the bulb tops from foil paper of your choice.
  • Punch out the sprigs using the Sprig Punch and Mossy Meadow card stock.

Tell me that your work area looks like mine sometimes!!!

  • Sponge top and both long edges of the tag using the Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake classic ink.
  • Attach a 1/2″ x 2″ piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.  I used the Cherry Cobbler “grid” pattern.
  • Attach all of the pieces as shown, using Dimensionals for the bulbs and Tombow adhesive for everything else.
  • Insert an 8″ piece of the 5/8″ Striped Burlap trim through the hole at the top of the tag and wrap it tightly with Linen Thread which is tied in a knot and then in a bow.
