Stampin UP! Christmas Tree Tag

 

Do you need a Really Simple but so pretty gift tag for your packages this Christmas!? 

Try this one with the Festival of Trees Bundle of products from Stampin' Up!

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up

HOW TO:

I punched a tag using Night of Navy cardstock (4-1/4" x 2") with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch then ripped Whisper White paper to create "snow" and layered it on the punched tag.

Then I stamped the trees from the Festival of Trees set, punched them out with the matching Tree Punch (don't you LOVE it when there is a matching punch to a stamp!?  I DO!!).

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-supplies

Punch Tip:

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-stamp-first

ABOVE: Remember.. always stamp your cardstock first, flip your punch upside down and center your image in the punch, then punch it out for best results.

BELOW:  how's this for a "double duty" tip for your stamps… use the dot stamp in the Festival of Trees set for some snow!!

Christmas-tag-festival-of-trees-stampin-up-stazon-snow

OK>> carry on.. go stamp tags and wrap gifts…

Gift Box Punch Board Christmas Boxes

 

Have you tried out the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up!?  It was introduced in the Holiday Catalog a few months ago. You can find it on page 5 or HERE in my online store. I love that you can make so many different sizes and shapes of boxes with it!!  

How-to-gift-box-punch-board-stampin-up

My best tip is.. get the Under the Tree heavy weight designer paper for your boxes (pg 5 of the Holiday Catalog) .. it works great for scoring and folding these boxes.

Gift-box-punch-board-santa-stache

Here is a green box I made when I was stamping one day at Cindee's house.. we made boxes and then created tags.. I used the Santa Stache stamp set to create a nutcracker tag on the Kraft paper (pg 192 in the annual catalog). I colored it with Blendabilities.. I would say that Blendabilities probably look nicer on Whisper White cardstock, but, I do love how this turned out!

Gift-box-punch-board-4-steps

Here is a tip for you about using paper with a pattern in the Gift Box Punch Board:

How to use the Gift Box Punch Board

 

(reading this in an email? visit my blog to view the video)

Santa-stache-nutcracker-tag

 I used the Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blendabilities markers to color in the stamped Nutcracker.  I stamped the mustache a 2nd time and die cut it with the Mustache framelit and added it to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.
