Clockworks Two Tags Gift Box

clockworks two tag boxI made this cute Two Tag Die box at the Stampin’ Up! regional event in Chattanooga last fall.  And adorable 2-1/2″ square gift cards fit sweetly into the box.  Of course, you could use it to put other goodies into the box as well.  To make the box, die cut two of the Two Tag dies and fold on the score lines.  The die cuts will create the front and back of the box.

Cut 2-7/8″x 6-3/4″ piece of Calypso Coral cardstock and score horizonally at 2″ and 4-3/4″ and vertically at 1/2″ and 2-3/8″.  Crease the score lines and notch the hinged flaps.  These pieces will create the sides.  You’re ready to assemble your box.

Stamp a 1-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece of First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Clockworks Stamp Set with Gumball Green ink.  Scrunch the paper and adhere to the front of the box.  Stamp ‘Happiness’ from the One in a Million stamp set and create flag on top of toothpick.

The flower is created with the Fancy Flower punch.  Stamp Calypso Coral cardstock and punch two flowers.  Punch another flower from First Edition Specialty dsp.  Curl the petals with the bone folder.  Snip between two petals of the top flower and adhere one petal on top of the other.  Scrunch the dsp flower, adhere the dahlia and adhere to the front of the flower.

clockworks mini cards

These 2-1/2″ square Mini Card is stamped with the Clockworks stamp set in Pool Party, Gumball Green and Calypso Coral.  The message is stamped from the One in a Million stamp set.  And these little mini cards fit neatly into the Two Tags Box.

Christmas gift tags scentsational season

Last Minute Christmas Gift Tags

Christmas gift tags

I made lots of last minute Christmas gift tags today.  I checked my wrapping paper first to match my colors.  I’ll be wrapping presents tomorrow and I’ll have lots of tags to choose from!!  I could have made these tags for hours; I was having so much fun and I kept thinking of new ideas.  I finally just had to stop!!  I seriously have to look into a crafter’s anonymous  group to join.

I thought I would share a few them with you in case you needed to make some last minute tags too!

christmas gift tags two tags die

These are the most involved tags I made.  I cut these Real Red and Gumball Green cardstock with the Two Tags Bigz Die.  The great thing about this die is you can cut about four pieces at a time.  The stocking on the left are from the Owl Occasions stamp set, the reindeer are from the Joyous Celebrations set and the tree, the candy cane and gingerbread man are from the Scentsational Seasons set, cut out with the matching framelits dies.

The rick rack is cut from the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, and I added Dazzling Details glitter glue to the cut outs.  I added a Red Glimmer Paper heart punched from the Owl Builder punch to the stocking tag.  I colored a rhinestone with a red sharpie marker to give the reindeer a Rudolf nose.

christmas tags punch

I used the Tag punch to make these basic tags.  Rudolf, 25 and the Christmas trees were stamped from the Joyous Celebrations stamp set and punched out with the Postage Stamp punch.

christmas gift tags joyous celebrations trees

I added a rhinestone on the star and red Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue ‘Christmas balls’ on the trees.

Christmas gift tags joyous celebrations Rudolf

This time I used a small punched circle of Red Glimmer Paper for Rudolf’s nose.

Christmas gift tags joyous celebrations december 25

And who knew that the circle punches from the Cupcake Builder punch is just the right size to add Glimmer Paper to dress up this December 25 tag.

christmas gift tags merry mini punch

The ornament and trees here are punched out using the Merry Minis punches.  To create the tags with the peek-a-boo circle, first punch a 3/4″ circle from the paper then punch around it with the tag punch and back it with a contrasting tag punch, then center your tree or ornament in the middle.  I love this Silver Glimmer Paper tag.

Christmas gift tags scentsational season

The Scentsational Season gingerbread man and Christmas tree actually open like a card.

christmas tags scentsational season open

To create this little card fold your card stock in half and place your framelit over the fold.  I only used Whisper White cardstock for this, as it is lighter weight than the other cardstocks and the framelits are intended to just cut through one piece of paper, so be careful if you try this.  Then stamp the gingerman or tree, cut them out and glue to the front of the folded shape.

christmas tags scentsational season gingerbread man

His Red Glimmer paper bowtie is made with two hearts from the Owl Builder punch, with a small circle punch connecting them into a bow.  I discovered that I could place the points of the hearts on a glue dot, then wrap the glue dot around the points and add the circle  onto the wrapped glue dot.  After assembling the bowtie on the glue dot, it was easy to place onto the cute little guy.

christmas tags scentsational season tree

I added just a couple of Red Glimmer paper punched circles onto the tree for fun and a Glimmer paper star to the top.

christmas tags glitter wreath

It’s amazing how easy it is to create this little glittery wreath tag.  Punch a 3/4″ circle in the Silver Glimmer paper, then punch around the circle with the 1-1/4″ scallop circle.  The bow is made the same way as the gingerbread man’s bowtie.  To adhere to the bowtie to the glittery wreath, use multipurpose liquid glue to assure good sticking power!

I hope you enjoyed these fun tags and I hope my family likes them too!!

Merry Christmas!  Julie

Stampin’ Up! Rockin’ Santas

punch art dancing santa

While playing with paper and punches, I made a couple of stand-up Rockin’ Santas.  Both were created with the same face that I used for the Santa petite purse.  You can click here to see the supply list and the video tutorial for the Santa purse.  I added bodies to these Santa faces to create the stand-up Santa.

Doesn’t he just look like he is dancing?  What dance would that be?!?  On this Santa I used the Pennant Die and the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine to make the body.  I created the arms with the Curly Label punch and a circle punch.  First I punched the label then I fed the punched label back into the punch and punched the inside of the arm.  I used the circle punch to trim off the points and create the wrist.  I made the hands with the smallest blossom from the Boho Blossom punch, then trimmed off the extra petals.

His Santa suit has pearl buttons colored with a Black Sharpie, with a strip of Basic Black cardstock for his belt and a Mini Label punched belt buckle.  To create the belt buckle, punch the circle from Silver Glimmer Paper with the circle punch from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, then center the circle in the Mini Label punch and punch it out and attach it to the belt with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

punch art dancing santa back

The back is layered with the same pieces.  The bent paper clip legs were adhered and sandwiched between the front and the back.  You can use glue dots for quick results, but I used crystal effects for lasting staying power.  His feet were then taped down on to a white scallop circle base.  It would be fun to have a rocking wood block to pin him down to and then he’ll really rock out!

Stampin' Up! punch art rocking santa

This Rockin’ Santa has a Scallop Circle body with a simple Basic Black belt and a small circle buckle punched from the Silver Glimmer paper.  His hands were also trimmed from the smallest blossom from the Boho Blossom punch.

Again the back is layered with a matching scallop circle with the paper clip legs sandwiched and cemented into place with Crystal Effects.  The feet were taped to the back of a Hershey Nugget so he’ll rock.  Gentle rocking is needed though as he will topple if you get too carried away!!
