Post#104 – Thank You So Much Tag

A few days back I tried out the gold glitter splatter technique on a card(Post#97) and decided to try it out again on a tag….
This tag has two 2″ wide layers and the tops were created by punching with a tag topper punch…..for the base tag I simply rounded the corners and for the top tag I kept the length about half of the base tag and punched using a banner punch…from the left over section I die cut another small banner…
Once the bases were ready I added the glitter and let that dry…Later I stamped the top layer and added the small die cut banner on the bottom layer with a heart stamped on it…In the end I added the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#98 – Tiny Gift Box

While searching for projects and things to make with the Tag Topper Punch, an image of these really cute boxes came up but the link took me to the tutorial in a language I couldn’t understand much…..Thanks Google Translate, I was able to make these tiny goody gift boxes easily….
Here’s the link for the great photo tutorial By Nadine Koller – LINK 
I used a light blue printed paper to make these boxes…and then decorated them with a a few punched out pieces and Kaisercraft Collectables die cuts…I added a banner with a sentiment as well..
To close the boxes at the top I simply used a brown string and tied a bow…
Hope you liked these…

Post#94 With Love Balloon Tag

Today I’m sharing a simple tag….I chose a blue cardstock for the  base and punched at the top using a tag topper punch and rounded the corners of the base…
And in an attempt to try Twinkling H2O watercolors again, I coloured a bit of white cardstock using these watercolours and die cut a balloon and ‘with love’ word…the die cuts shimmer beautifully…I embossed the balloon die cut and added a couple of punched hearts in red and gold…and to finish the tag I added bright red and yellow ribbons…
I hope you liked it…

Post#78 Earrings Gift Pouch

I am quite excited to share today’s creation with you…..It’s my very own creation using the Tag Topper Punch….I have been making hook earrings for a long time now…..I love wearing them as well as making them…so this time when I made a few sets I sat down to think about how to create packaging for these earrings…
One look at the tag punch and I had my answer….I cut out long 2″ strips of gold and silver cardtstock and punched on one end of the strips….I folded the top flap down…..then I decided how tall/long I wanted these pouches and scored and folded the base….I also scored another 1/4″ from the base score line so that there of a bit of room for the earrings…
These pouches now needed something for the earrings to hook onto…one option was to punch two holes but that meant the hooks would be visible from the back of the pouch and wouldn’t look nice…so I decided to adhere a strip of cardstock on the inside of the pouch which would easily provide the base to hang the hooks onto…
I added a few punched flowers on the front….and finally I threaded a ribbon through to close the pouch….
I’m really hoping you liked my creation…..

Post#73 Cross Close Box

For  quite some time I had been looking for a tutorial to make a box which did not need a ribbon,string or a band to close it……and luckily I found one by Elaine Jackson on her blog called Papercraft Button….She has shared measurements for a variety of sizes for this box she calls the Cross Close Box….I have added her tutorial video below as well if you’d like to learn how to make this box…
I used a very dark green cardstock to create the base and a green and white printed paper for the four panels on each side….
I also made a tag using the same papers…the base of the tag was made by punching both ends of the tag with the tag topper punch and threading a ribbon through…then added a square peice of printed paper with two of the edges rounded using the corner punch….and finally added the stamped sentiment on top….
I had a lot of fun making this box….Hope you liked how it turned out…

Post#67 Bright Gift Box

I have seen so many pins on Pinterest where crafters have used the Stampin Up Tag Topper Punch to create a whole lot of projects..it is quite interesting to see, learn and create all these things…
So I made a box using the WRMK 1 2 3 Punch board…once that was done I took a piece of paper 2″ wide and 12” long and punched it on one end using the tag topper punch…then starting on the top I wrapped it around the box and creased it at every corner…I marked the point where I wanted to punch on the other end and then punched it….I then looped a ribbon through the two ends and tied it into a bow…
This was one of the simplest projects…and a great way to create a band to close a gift box……I will definitely look into trying out some more things with this punch or even coming up with something of my own…
Thanks for visiting my blog…
