Gift Bag and Matching Tag

Since December is the time of year for lots of gift giving, I had to make my own gift bag and matching tags!  I love to make them to match my holiday cards!  This year’s bags and tags uses the Get Your Santa On stamp set, which I love!  This stamp set is so cute and when you use it with your StazOn ink you can color Santa and his suit. (Make sure that you let the StazOn ink dry before you start to use your Stampin’ Write Markers to color.)  It makes for a very fun and memorable tag.  I use a plain white gift bag as my base for the gift bag which you can get at your local store that sells gift bags and crafts.

Here’s my third make and take from Convention!  This one is probably my favorite.  Here’s why…  The bag is beautiful but what is inside is even nicer!  Inside there are 5 different kinds of cards AND matching envelopes!  I love the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set because it is so gorgeous.  It makes this bag and card set so nice and a gift that anyone would love.  To make the bag and the cards I used Hello, Lovely Stamp Set; Old Olive Cardstock; Whisper White Cardstock; Silver Glimmer Paper; Tag a Bag Gift Bag; Note Cards & Envelopes; Bermuda Bay Ink Pad; Coastal Cabana Ink Pad; Crisp Cantaloupe Ink Pad; Old Olive Ink Pad; Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker; Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin’ Write Marker; Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon; Calypso Coral 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

Tag a Bag Gift Box

Thank you... You're the BEST

Thank you… You’re the BEST

I made this fun gift box at Convention.  It was my second make and take that I made there.  I really love the feathers which are made out of paper!  I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch  to punch one circle each from the Calypso Coral Cardstock and the Crisp Cantaloupe Designer Series Paper.  I also punch one circle from the Coastal Cabana Cardstock using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  To create the feather shapes, insert cardstock circles back into the punch about halfway and punch again.  Then fold in half and snip through both layers and rough the edges to add dimension.  To make this box I used Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set; Hello, Lovely Stamp Set; 2-1/2″ Circle Punch; 1-3/4″ Circle Punch; Bermuda Bay Cardstock; Calypso Coral Cardstock; Whisper White Cardstock; Crisp Cantaloupe Designer Series Paper Stack; Tag a Bag Gift Box; Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad; Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Stampin’ Pad; Summer Starfruit 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, and Linen Thread.

It’s your day… CELEBRATE!

I made this fun gift bag at Convention.  It was one of four make and takes.  I used the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit, Tag It Stamp Set, Coastal Cabana 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim, Epic Day This and That Designer Washi Tape, Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker, and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  To make the tag I used the Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp.  It makes the tag fun and stand out.  This bag would be a great gift bag for someone’s birthday or a birthday party favor!
