Stampin' Addicts Holiday Mini Blog Hop - Tags til Christmas

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Holiday Mini Blog Hop!! When I got the new mini I just knew I had to everything in it and if you didn't already you will by the time this hop is over!! In this hop we are featuring 22 items from the Holiday Mini as well as many of the accessories! So come join the fun!!

If you are following this hop in order then you have just come from Adriana's Escape 2 Stamp where she shared projects using the Vintage Frames Decor Stencils. How fun were those?? If you are continuing to follow the hop in order I will provide the next link at the bottom of the post or you can check in on our chat thread over at Stampin' Addicts!

On my blog I am featuring the stamp set Tags til Christmas!! This was one of those sets I just had to have and if you are like me I love to wrap packages all pretty for Christmas. This set is a great way to add something extra special to those packages with a handmade tag! So for my first project I made this super cute kid's shaker tag!!

Stinkin' cute huh!?! What kid wouldn't love this on their package AND to keep it well after their present has been opened. On this project I used the Treat Cups and Silver Glass Glitter as well as the Jolly Jingles jumbo wheel all from the Holiday Mini. I used the new Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and Rhinestones from the big catty.

Even though this set was created for the use of making tags you can also you it to make cards.

I had so much fun making this card ... it took me a bit to get all the elements just right but love how it came out!!I used the ornament stamp and punched out several using the matching punch from the big catty. I also used the Jolly Jingles wheel in this project as well on the background Certainly Celery cardstock piece. To add a bit more texture I also used a button from the Candy Cane designer buttons also found in the Mini. I needed a bit more white around the button and since I didn't have any buttons in that color I made my own with a piece of white cardstock; it worked perfectly! Now you are probably wondering how I made the lace around the ornament. It's actually pretty simple I just punched a long piece of cardstock out with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch from the big catty. I folded peaks and valleys all round each of the indents. Pretty neat. Love the extra texture it gave!

Now this last project was the first one I made for the hop and my absolute favorite project!!


It's a tag holder ... perfect to give to others to use on their gift packaging needs!! I love the vintage and elegant design of this project. Here is what it looks like all opened up.



So what do you think?? Would you like to learn how to make it? On my next Technique Tuesday I will show you the four simple steps in creating the holder. If you want a reminder when I post the tutorial you can sign up for email notification or become a follower which can both be located on my right side bar. The additional items I used in creating this project was the Jolly Jingles wheel, Decorative Label jumbo punch, and Cherry Cobbler seam binding. To added the glitter I rubbed crystal effects along the edges after I sponged them with chocolate chip ink.

Ready for the next stop?? I know I am!! I loved the projects Cindy has created so be sure to check out her site called Heart's Delight Cards which she will be showcasing the stamp set Jolly Bingo Bits! Happy Stamping!!
