Hello everyone!

I created a treat box that is perfect for giving little treats or presents, paired with a fun tag.

This project uses the YNS Mini Popcorn box die and the Holiday Postage stamp set. This is the front view of the completed project.

I love making Muddie Buddies during the holidays and they don’t last long around my house.  There something magical putting Rice Chex, chocolate chips and peanut butter together covered in powdered sugar. To start in making my treat holder for it, I used some YNS Holiday Joy paper which I lined with some food grade glassine.  You could use some wax paper or freezer paper too, but I just happened to have some glassine treat bags.  I glued the paper to the outside and cut it out with the popcorn box.  For this mini one, you need to cut out two sets to put it together. Once you put the box together, you will now have a lined box ready to add some treats.

The tag was made using the Stitched Scallop Rectangle die and decorated using the Holiday Postage stamp set.  I stamped the holly onto the tag and stamped it again on some card stock to color with my Copics.  That was cut out and popped up over the stamped image on the tag.  The sentiments were stamped directly onto the tag.  The treat box was then put into another bag and tied with ribbon and the tag, ready for gift giving!

Here is a side view of the bag:

I hope I was able to help with a little gift giving inspiration this season using some of your YNS dies and stamp sets.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!

Hi everyone!  It’s Tricia here to share one of my favorite easy gift ideas… clear bags filled with goodies and tied with a tag.  You can fill the bag with anything from handcrafted cards to store bought goodies tailored to the recipient, which makes it the most versatile gift ever!
My gift today is a K-cup of Peppermint Bark coffee (which is as good as it sounds!) and a Peppermint Bark candy bar presented in a matching mug, so I decided to stay with the theme and use the snowman mug from the Winter Wishes set, all dressed up in a peppermint-ish scarf.
To make the tag, I first stamped my image in Memento Black ink and colored it with Copics.  Then I cut it out with the largest Bookmark/Tag die – using the rounded end on top rather than the end with the hole.  I cut the tag off and used a decorative punch on the end.  Then I embossed my greeting in white on some coordinating cardstock and added a mat and some extra elements from the same cardstock before adding some twine and gold cording.
Happy creating!!

Hi Everyone!

I’m excited to share two tags with you that I created!

For today’s project I grabbed the awesome Drink Tag Die Set!  I love using this tag set to create not only tags for wine bottles, but they are perfect for hand soaps too.  I give a lot of hand soaps out during the holidays and love having this tag set to create tags to jazz them up a bit!!

Here are two I made for my post today:

Aren’t they fun?!

I love how they turned out!

The tag set doesn’t come with any layers, so I like to create my own!!

I run the die through my Big Shot, cutting the pattern paper on what would be the front side of the tag only, not the top portion with the hole.

After die cutting it, I may trim a little off the top side if needed to get the look I want.  Just depends on how big I want each layer to be.

For the darker purple tag, I die cut a few layers!

Here is a look at just one:

I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set for my white cardstock layer.  The fourth from smallest rectangle is the perfect fit for this tag!  I added the ‘Happy Holidays’ die cut sentiment, which is from the Holiday Scribble Tree Die Set!
I then added some Divine Twine and a clustered snowflake embellishment I created!

The smallest snowflake was created by die cutting one specific snowflake I wanted from the Snowflake Panel Die!

It’s always fun to get the most out of your products!  This panel die is one of my favorites!!  But it’s sometimes fun to just use the beautiful snowflakes from it!!

A look at both the tags on my soap bottles:

Perfect addition to my gifts!!

They would be perfect on Wine Bottles too!!

Have a lovely day!

Hello everyone!
I love making Christmas tags so that’s the project I’m sharing today. 
I used the Cool Tag Three Die Set and cut three tags from white card stock.  I also cut a piece of pattern paper and acetate for each tag.
I adhered the pattern paper to the tag and then stamped tiny sentiments using the Holiday Mice stamp set.  I used liquid adhesive to adhere the acetate to the back side of the front tag pieces.
I added foam tape around the outer edge of the tag, added the sequins, and then adhered the front and back pieces of the tag together.  I used the bunnies from the Frosty Friends stamp set, colored them with Copics, and die cut them using the Frosty Friends Die Set.
A black glaze pen was used for the bunny eyes and I added polka-dots to their hats using my white gel pen.  I adhered the bunnies to the tags and then finished the tags with some ribbon, twine, and a bell.
Happy Stamping!

Hello, YNS fans!

It’s Andrea sharing a cute gift card holder. Who says giving gift cards can’t be fun?! (And, really, who doesn’t like receiving them? 😉 )

Using the Gift Card Holder Die, I die-cut the holder from navy cardstock. I masked above and below the score lines on the outside of the holder and ink-blended with Faded Jeans and Black Soot distress inks to create my night-time sky. I flicked on some white paint to represent snowflakes.

I stamped that adorable sheep from Fleece Navidad with Black Olive Dye ink, colored her with Copics, and cut her out with the coordinating dies. The snowy hill was die-cut with the Double Pierced Hills Die Set and trimmed to fit the holder. Onto the hill I stamped a sentiment from Fleece Navidad. I die-cut the trees with the Skating Rink Scene Die Set and colored them with Copics. I adhered the hill to my gift card holder, tucked in the trees, and popped up the sheep with foam tape.

To dress up the front of the holder, I die-cut some plaid paper with the Gift Card Holder Die. I trimmed off all but the front flap and adhered it to my holder. Using another die in the set, I die-cut some pink cardstock and added it to my flap. The sentiment was die-cut with the Holiday Photo Booth Elements Die Set, as were the holly leaves and berries.

 

YNS Supplies:

  1. Fleece Navidad
  2. Gift Card Holder Die Set
  3. Holiday Photo Booth Elements
  4. Double Pierced Hills Set
  5. Skating Rink Die Set
  6. Black Olive Dye Ink

Hello! It’s Kerri and for my 12 Days of Christmas project I decided to make 2 of my favorite things-a Tag and a Gift Card Holder!

For my Tag, I used the Cool Tag 4 Die Set, along with the adorable snowman from the Hot Cocoa Phoebe stamp set. I just LOVE him!!! I stamped him with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I do not have the die set so I simply cut him out with scissors. For the background I cut out a snowy hill using the Double Pierced Hills Die Set and added a tree cut with a die from the Skating Rink Scene Die Set. I added the snowflake from an older Whatnot Die Set and finally some Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops. So cute!

For my Gift Card Holder, I used the Gift Card Holder Die Set to cut the base out of the same Doodlebug designer paper that I used for my tag. I then stamped my darling image from Fleece Navidad with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I cut it out with the coordinating Fleece Navidad Die Set and popped it up on my gift card holder with foam tape. I used a Fishtail/Banner Die Set One die to cut a banner out of white cs and then used my Mini Misti Stamp tool to line up and stamp the sentiment. Finally, I added a couple of Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops and it was complete!

The fun thing about using double sided dp for the gift card holder is the inside is already decorated! Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you are inspired to create some of your own holiday tags and gift card holders!
