Got it tagged!

I am not good at coming up with original ideas creatively speaking but neither am I good at copying someone else’s work exactly! My ideas are sparked by seeing what other people have come up with and I take bits and add my own slant to it; I am so envious of those very creative people who help to inspire me and appreciate their generosity in showing their work and even, in some cases, doing step by step tutorials.

This tag box is one such sparked idea, I had seen variations of it on various blogs including the Splitcoast Stampers forum. Splitcoast Stampers have a huge resource section to glean lots of ideas from!

The box was made from sturdy cardstock and a piece of acetate saved from packaging material made a good box sleeve to keep the tags clean.

All the tags were created from scrap cardstock which was either cut into small tag shapes or punched with a circle punch. As most of the cardstock was either ivory or white, then various coloured inks were sponged on before stamping. The top right circle above was stamped with Versamark and white detail embossing powder added before heat embossing.

A great way to use up scraps of cardstock and try out some of those smaller stamps too! This box of gift tags will be going to a good home as a small present.

Thank you for looking x

  4. AWESOME!! Love these tags! Your box came together right smartly as well. As “Sam Read” says, and I concur, you are an inspiration as well. You’ve taken the tag thing out of Christmas and made it fantastic for all occasions. Totally Awesome!

    • You and Sam are both making me blush 🙂 Yes I thought I’d make the tags for year round rather than just Christmas otherwise the recipient couldn’t use them until next Christmas!!
      Love and hugs ♥
