SF2023 - Tags, Boxes and Bags...

Welcome to another Stampin' Friends Blog Hop.  With Christmas creeping up on us (and it really feels like that this year!), I created these tags and cracker using the Painted Christmas DSP and Christmas Season stamp set.

I love making crackers, they are really simple yet always pack a punch and these papers are so lovely to work with.  The crackers are quite large so will hold some lovely goodies at the Christmas table.  They use a whole A4 sheet of cardstock but well worth it.

I have used the Christmas Season stamp set to make these really quick and easy gift tags too.  Have you spotted the Very Best Trio Punch?

This punch is amazing, it creates pretty corners for your cards, or in this case tags, and even has the little slit to thread your ribbon through.  The curvy corner is the best because depending on which way up you use it you get two different effects, so it is really a quad punch in my eyes!

When I make tags, I cut all the elements first, the base and then the tags.  I then stamp the greetings and then the decoration.  They are great for those last minute pressies!

I love packaging, especially at Christmas, and I cannot wait to see what everyone else has been creating.

Have a great day,
