Post#134 Christmas Giftbag

This gift bag has been made by following a Bag Tutorial by Sam Hammond Donald….it is a great size bag which is excellent for gifting jewelry etc…
I made this bag from a red and white Christmas paper with large numbers printed on it and attached an embossed red front panel to it….I stamped the sentiment on a white strip of cardstock and punched the edges using the banner punch…I added another strip in gold cardstock underneath…
Once the bag was ready I lightly sponged all the edges with red ink..
What I like most about this bag is the technique to close the box using a ribbon….you have to see the tutorial video to learn that…
Hope you liked it…

Post#130 – Christmas Shaker Tag

Today I’m sharing a Christmas tag with a small shaker element…..I think that gives the tag a bit of a festive feel….
I started by die cutting the base of the tag using labels eight nesting dies from spellbinders….I then die cut about 6 small circle frames from white cardstock and stuck them one on top of another near the base of the tag….then put in a few sequins and sealed it using an acetate circle…and finally die cut another frame in blue and glued it on top….
Once the shaker section was ready I quickly attached the stamped sentiment and a few sequins and pearls …I glued a 3/4″ red circle and a 1/2″ white one near the top of the tag and and punched a hole for the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#125 – Christmas Fringe Card

Today I’m sharing a card in red,white and green….the colours of Christmas…
I used two shades of each colour and cut them into equal size strips…I then cut along the lengths of each strip with a pair of fringing scissors….these strips were attached on the top layer of the card…
The sentiment was stamped on the top of the card and I also attached one red and one green ribbon… under it and then attached the top layer to a white card base…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#124 – Christmas Gift Box

While buying and giving Christmas gifts are quite an exciting part of the holidays,there is a big need for gift bags and boxes for these presents…while some gifts can be simply wrapped using papers of all sorts,others need a bit more…and with that thought I started on this box…
The box itself came together quite quickly as it was made using the 1 2 3 punch board…to close the box I decided to create a band made from paper and ribbon….for the top of the band I created a double bow using the same punch board….
Hope you liked this box…

Post#121 – Merry Christmas Banner

I like making banners and have made quite a lot of them over the years…usually for the kids room or birthdays….so this time I thought to try out a banner for Christmas…
The banner making process was made simple and much quicker by using the WRMK banner punch board….you could make a pennant,flag or crest style banner in various sizes with this punch board…I decided to make a flag style banner..
Once the banner base and top layers were  die cut a  square shape using Nestabilities Labels 1 die for all the flags….then I cut out the alphabets in green and red using Fiskars cutting stencils and adhered the alphabets to the square shape…I also added two gold rhinestones on each flag….
To separate the word Merry and Christmas,I made a flag with a banner going sideways and and oval die cut…and finally attached a reindeer die cut on the top…
Hope you liked this banner…

Post#116 Star Box

Now this is a box that I wanted to make because of the lovely star shape at the top of the box…I had the link for the tutorial bookmarked for more than a year now but never got around to making it coz I thought it was a kind of a tricky box…I couldn’t have been more wrong….and once you see the tutorial you will think the same…
You do need an Envelope Punch Board for this box…And here is the link to the photo tuorial – Star Gift Box by Tracy May
I chose a dark eggplant coloured paper with a marbled effect print to create the box…..once the box was ready,I carefully tied the ribbon around it…this box doesn’t close fully so you have to be careful about what you put inside of it…
On the front of the box I adhered the die cut word ‘For You’ using silver paper and a star as well…
Hope you liked this box and will try it out…

Post#113 Love Heart Theme – Lots Of Hearts Tag

This is one of the simplest thing I have made for this theme but I quite like it….
Firstly I stamped in the middle of the tag with a large heart stamp and the embossed it with clear embossing powder….then I stamped small hearts in various colours all over the tag….
To finish the tag I added two bright ribbons…
It’s quite simple but I still hope you liked it…

Post#111 Love Heart Theme – With Love Tag

I created this tag base using the same technique as the one in Post 109…the embossing folder used in this one is called Diamonds by Kaisercraft….after embossing I created the watercolour effect using distress inks..
I wanted this tag to have quite a bit of delicate layers so I used a large punched flower and a die cut stitched border circle and attached them to the tag…then I added a bit of gold string…and finally two banners layers…the top layer banner has the die cut word ‘with love’ on it as well as a few heart sequins….
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#109 Love Heart Theme Tag

After making some cards and tags I realised that they all had one thing in common….Love Hearts…So I made a few more and decided to share them with you over the next week as a theme… 🙂
Once I die cut the tag,I inked an embossing folder(Honeycomb by Kaisercraft) with pigment ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…this works perfect for me because I do not own any background stamps…
I then created the watercolour effect using distress inks…simply dab some ink on a small piece of acetate and spritz it with a bit of water…transfer this watered ink directly onto the paper….it becomes more beautiful when two colours combine to create a new one….
Once the tag was dry I attached the three die cut hearts in the center…stamped the sentiment on a banner,added a few punched stars and finally added the ribbons…
Hope you liked this tag…there are a couple more that I’ll be sharing with you soon…
