As you wrap those last minute packages, here are a few ideas.
These tags are made with the Merry Little Labels stamp set, Everyday Label punch, assorted Designer Series Papers, Garden Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, and Jute Twine.
The outer tags were made by me but designed by Martinette Horner as part of a project we made at the NC Stampin' Up! Demos event I went to in September. If you'd like to attend events like this, join my team and we can go together. Getting together with other demos is lots of fun and just one of the many benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Contact me or check out my website for more details.
I designed the other tag, but apparently the ribbon was added after the picture was taken.
This tag is made with the Many Mittens Framelits. The thread I used is retired, but Stampin' Up! offers lots of ribbon and Baker's Twine options that would work.
The tag opens up to put a message inside. These framelits have a coordinating stamp set, Smitten Mittens, that has a TO/FROM stamp in it. However, the stamp I used comes from Cookie Cutter Christmas. The message comes from Nature Sings. I got this idea from Pinterest but modified it some.
I came up with another cute idea using the Many Mittens Framelits - a Christmas ornament. Instead of making it like a book, just layer the three layers (Real Red front and back with Sahara Sand in the middle). Be sure to attach the hanging ribbon inside as you glue the layers together. The ornament hangs the opposite way of the tag (band up).
Many Mittens includes some dies that emboss and I used one of them to emboss the band on the back of the ornament. It gives it a finished look.
This ornament also looks cute hung on a bottle of wine you are giving as a gift, such as a hostess gift. It does double duty because it dresses up the bottle for gift giving, but then the recipient also has the ornament. You could also use this to embellish a package instead of a bow.
Several of the items in today's post are discounted and/or retiring when the Holiday Catalog ends. These items are only available while supplies last. Check it out at my online store. While you're there, check out the Clearance Rack which was recently updated. Current hostess code is BDBZUZSX.
