Christmas Ornament/ Party Favor/Gift Tag

 

One of the projects we made last December at club was this ornament.  It could be used as a party favor or a gift tag or……

It is a case of Sandra Roberts tag on sandrascraftstudio.com.

Recipe

There are six pairs of stars from the Stitched Stars Dies with an Evening Evergreen base and a smaller star die cut layer in the Painted Christmas DSP.  The DSP is glued directly to the Evening Evergreen with Tombow adhesive and then the top two pairs are popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Largest Star:  Evening Evergreen, 5 1/2 X 6, die cut with stitched stars die
    • Layer:  Painted Christmas DSP, 4 X6, die cut with next smaller stitched stars die
    • Note:  After gluing on the DSP, punch a small hole for the ornament hanger, down far enough to be covered by the point of next star
  • Next Star:  Evening Evergreen, die cut with next smaller stitched stars die
    • Layer: Painted Christmas DSP, die cut with next smaller stitched stars die
  • Top Star: Evening Evergreen, die cut with stitched stars die
    • Layer:  Painted Christmas DSP, die cut with next smaller stitched stars die
  • Gold Stems: Gold Foil, 2 1/2 X 2 1/4, Die Cut with Poinsettia die
  • Leaves:  Garden Green, 2 1/2 X 2, Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and Die
  • Poinsettias (X2):  Real Red, 1 X 2, die cut with Merriest Frames Die
  • Add one large gilded gem to the top
  • Greeting:  Basic White, 2 1/2 X 1 1/2 stamped with Merry Christmas from Curvy Christmas stamp set in Evening Evergreen. Die cut with Stitched Nested Label die and then sponge the edges with Evening Evergreen.
  • Hanger:  Red Twine, 12″ for hanger, separate 6″ for bow.  Double the 12″ and push the loop through the punched hole from front to back then bring the ends through the loop at the back and tighten pushing the sides down around the point.  Tie a double know with the ends.  Tie a bow and mount with a glue dot on top of hanger.

I think it would make a great Christmas card and then the recipient could pull it off and put it on their tree. 

That would be a good idea, Sal!   I did that one year with a circular ornament that I put in a pocket at the front of the card.  I made a longer hanger so it could loop to the inside of the card where I attached it lightly with a note saying the ornament could be removed.

Are you going to make gift tags this year?  

You know, Sal, I have trouble with spending time on gift tags since they are thrown away with the wrapping paper with hardly a second look and they are not recyclable since the name is written on the tag.  They are pretty and I love getting them on gifts but I am just not into making them.

So followers, let me know if you make gift tags to dress up your packages each year.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for spending some of it with Sal and I.
