Christmas Gift Tags Day 2

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome to Day 2 of my Christmas Gift Tag Week. If you missed Day 1, make sure you pop over to yesterday’s post to check it out! Now, on to this super simple, but elegant tag!

There are several different style tags in my series this week which all feature their own little, unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This tag uses two beautiful Christmas sets. The first is Tidings All Around which is the set I featured yesterday, and also where this sentiment came from. I stamped ‘Tis The Season using Merry Merlot ink onto some Very Vanilla cardstock that I cut down to 2″ x 2-7/8″ and punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. After rounding the two bottom corners, I used Mossy Meadow to stamp the pine and berry swag which is from Christmas Countdown. It’s a lovely set that coordinates with the Christmas Countdown Project Kit.

I threaded the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon through the top of the tag, and cinched it with some Linen Thread to easily tie it onto my package, and not waste any of the beautiful, more expensive ribbon. I used the To and From stamp from Tidings All Around, and stamped it on the back of the tag using Mossy Meadow ink.

I absolutely love the way these tags turned out! They are so festive and would look beautiful on so many different wrapped packages. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite tag style is,
simple or elaborate?

Christmas Gift Tags Day 1

Hello Kre8tors! Today we are talking about Christmas Gift Tags. I usually leave these to the last minute, because I don’t always know how many gifts I’m giving. I typically do all of my shopping before I wrap and tag my packages. So I need some super simple and fast tags that I can whip up in a few minutes, especially for those days when I just procrastinate a little too long!

This week I will be rolling out a series of tag videos to help inspire you to get your tags made. There are several different styles which all feature a little unique flair. I hope you enjoy all of the tags, and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on my video tutorials.

This first tag of the week was a lot of fun to make. I ran one of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies on Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot and layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler or Garden Green cardstock scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped my sentiment from Tidings All Around onto the Very Vanilla circle. Then I used the greenery stamp from the same set and stamped it in Garden Green on the top and bottom of the circle. I used the little dots that look like berries and stamped them in Cherry Cobbler on top of the greenery pieces.

I punched a whole at the top of the tag, and then stamped the To and From stamp from the same stamp set onto the back. I threaded some Garden Green Stitched Ribbon and Real Red Ruched Ribbon through the small whole, cut angles on the ends, and then used some Linen Thread to cinch down around the ribbon. This allows for some thread tails to tie onto the packages without wasting a lot of the beautiful ribbon.

I absolutely love the way these tags turned out! They are so festive and would look beautiful on so many different wrapped packages. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite tag style is,
round or rectangle?

December 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop Christmas

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more Christmas project inspiration!

I’m sharing this adorable treat holder that would make a cute stocking stuffer, work goodie, place holder, etc. It’s inspired by a pin from Pinterest by Mary Fish. I thought it was adorable and had to make a Christmas version to house my tree shaped Reese’s treats.

These are super quick to whip together and would be a great project to make in bulk. If you’re looking for these yummy Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Trees, you can find a box of them on Amazon (click to be directed through my affiliate link). This stocking stuffer goodie features a solid card stock “booklet”, a focal piece of DSP, a sentiment banner, and some beautiful ribbon.

Most all of the materials I used coordinate with the Toile Tidings suite of products in the Holiday Catalog. These products are while supplies last, so be sure to check with your demonstrator you see if they are still available.

Take a peek at my video tutorial to see how quick these come together. Don’t forget to hop along to the next blog for more festive paper crafts!

Stamper’s Showcase 2019 Holiday Catalog Favorites

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

The project I decided to create is an adorable paper box from the gorgeous Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. These boxes are super fun and quick to put together! In my YouTube tutorial, I show you how to calculate your measurements so that you can make a variety of sizes!

I like to have options when creating my boxes and think they look so cute on the plates at a beautifully set table for the holidays. You can put in a couple of chocolates, maybe some lottery tickets, or just cute notes to your family and friends. What would you put inside?

The length and width of all the boxes I made here are 3″ x 3″ and vary in height, with the tallest measuring 2-1/2″. You can make them so you can’t see the bottom part of the box, or make a shorter lid and a taller base so you can see the contrast. There are just so many options!

I really hope you enjoyed this project, and would love to see your boxes after you give them a try! Tag me on Instagram (@MKre8tions) so that I can share your beautiful projects!
