I met with a new group this morning.  We talked about the importance of packaging.  The way you choose to package a gift reflects the way it will be received to some degree.  Tiffany know this!  They would never put a piece of their jewelry in a plain box with a dollar store tag — and neither should you with your gifts.  Here are some pretty, easy, tags that you can begin to make now and have ready for the busy gift giving season.  If you’d like to have a tag making session with me, send me an email and we’ll set a date.

Bright and Beautiful and Seasonally Scattered tags from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

My first pair of tags uses Bright and Beautiful and Seasonally Scattered.  I’ve used Whisper White cardstock plus Pool Party and Soft Sky ink.  I kept embellishments simple with Basic Rhinestones, a little All Is Calm washi and 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.

 

Letterpress Winter and Wondrous Wreath tags from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

My second set of tags are almost as simple.  The tag on the left uses Letterpress Winter. I CASEd it from the Holiday Catalog and slightly altered it to simplify.

The tag on the right uses Wondrous Wreath.  I can’t begin to say how much I like the photopolymer stamps for multi-step stamping.  It’s a breeze!

 

Finally, I thought if you’re also receiving gifts you’ll need a thank you or two.  I went for simple elegance.

Letterpress Winter Thank You from theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

 

Starting with a Whisper White base, I stamped on the filigree border and then heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.  Then is was a snap to add “thank you” inked in Lost Lagoon to the center.  Both elements are from the Letterpress Winter photopolymer stamp set.

Easy, lovely ways to show that you value both the gift and the receiver; and of course, to thank the person/people who remembered you.
