I love giving tags as gifts – especially as we get closer to Christmas!
Today I created a cute little box with a whole bunch of matching tags, using the gorgeous florals from Pine and Posy.
I stamped a whole bunch of flowers and colored them in using my Copics. I chose some soft colors, which would be pretty for presents all year round, you can see which ones in the color map at the bottom of this post. You could go for more traditional Christmas colors if you prefer.
Once I had them all colored, I cut them out using the matching die. I also cut the same amount from some light grey cardstock. I put one of the florals and grey pieces off to the side, which I will use to decorate the box.
Then I stamped and white heat embossed the To and From, from the previously released Holiday Messages stamp set, on the back of the grey die cuts and glued them to the back of the colored flowers.
To add my string, I made a very small hole using a tiny drill bit, then added a small jump ring to it. Then I slipped my ribbon through the jump ring and added a silver bead to keep it together.
For the box, I cut the previously released Scallop Square Box from the same grey cardstock. From one of the pieces I cut the window from the same set, then drew around the die with a white gel pen to create the white stripe around it. To make sure my tags wouldn’t fall out, I added a piece of acetate to the inside of the box.
All I had to do then was assemble the box using the tabs and glue on my last flower. If you want to hide the adhesive and coloring on the back, you can use the grey die cut, cut off the excess pieces and glue inside the box.
