  • Adhesive die-cut embellishments
  • Three-piece Hip Hip Hooray Stamp Set & clear stamp block
  • Stampin Dimensionals

It is great price at $38.95 ($40.90 with shipping).  That is about $2 per card which is great value.

Tag a Bag Gift Boxes Perfect for a Gift

Last week for Valentines Day I made my husband some heart shaped Milo chocolate chip cookies.  I wanted a quick and easy way to wrap them up and present them nicely as a gift.  The Tag a Bag Gift Boxes were perfect for this. This is what I did.

Here is the box and a sample of some of the cookies inside. 

The Tag a Bag Gift Boxes are cut, scored and ready to quickly assemble and they come with an acetate sleeve.  I decided to emboss the acetate sleeve to give some texture to it and I finished it off with wide striped grosgrain ribbon.  

Here you can see the texture embossed acetate.

There is also a Tag a Bag Accessory Kit available which is another way to decorate the gift boxes or gift bags, or you can purchase the bags or boxes with the accessory kit as a bundle and get 15% off. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

A Braided Card with Simple Stems and Fresh Prints

This is one of the cards we made at my card class the other weekend.  They all had fun trying this technique to create the braided edge.  It was new to them all.  They enjoyed using the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and Simple Stems stamps set.  Everyone's card was a little different as they were each able to choose a paper design they liked from the new Fresh Prints DSP stack.  These paper stacks are great for card making.

And here is the inside of the card.

Stamps: Simply Stems, Create a Cupcake (sentiment)
Ink: Coastal Cabana/Crumb Cake
Card: Real Red, Coastal Cabana/Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Fresh Prints DSP Stack
Other: Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Stampin Sanding System, Crumb Cake Ribbon Seam Binding, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Dimensionals, Template for the Braided Edge

Thanks for stopping by.
