Stampin' Up Home for Christmas Tags with Doilies - Merry Moments Tag Holder

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I made up some tags with Stampin' Up's Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper and SU's Silver and Gold Doilies!  I also created a tag holder on SU's Envelope Punch Board.  Let's take a look:

Adorable, right!!!

Below is a picture of the tag holder that I created on my SU Envelope Punch Board using SU's Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack.  SU's DSP Stacks are 6"x6" which is the perfect size for my holder.  I slid my paper in the board with the left edge of the paper to the 3" mark; punch/score; slide left to the 3 3/4" mark; punch/score/ turn; place paper in board lining up the needle on the board with the previous score lines; punch/score/punch/score/turn; repeat scoring step one more time without punching for the open box style.  Before assembling, I cut off about 1" of the paper on the front corner so you could see Santa's face.

SU's Tea Lace Doilies are a lot of fun.  They add such a pretty touch and can be brayered with any color ink or dotted with a flicker of ink or stamped with some splatters like using the splatter stamp in SU's Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.

I LOVE the way the belly band turned out.  I cut a long 1" strip of the SU Home for Christmas blue with white dots and a 5/8" strip of the music paper each about 8 1/4" long and used SU's Fast Fuse to adhere them together.  I then wrapped the strips around the box lightly crimping the corners with my fingers and Fast Fusing the ends together in the back.

With SU's Real Red Card Stock and the Home for Christmas blue and white DSP, I die cut SU's falala twice using SU's Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies and the new Precision Base Plate.  I LOVE this new die cutting plate and would highly recommend it to anyone who die cuts intricate dies.  It cuts everything perfectly, only making one pass through the Big Shot and I didn't even have to use wax paper.  It just fell out of the die!  Amazing!  Then I used SU's Fine Tip glue bottle to adhere the two falala's together slightly off center.  The Fine Tip glue bottle works perfect for these skinny sentiments.  I used SU's Stampin' Dimensionals to pop the sentiment up on the belly band.


Next up are the tags that I created.....

Using the solid ornament image from SU's Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies, I die cut 4 of the large ornaments from SU's Old Olive Cardstock.  I also die cut 4 ornament caps; 2 each from SU's Gold Foil Paper and two from the Silver Foil Paper.

I fussy cut the poinsettia's, Santa's and deer from SU's Home for Christmas DSP.  Using SU's new Wink of Stella Brush (available in the coming SU Occasions Catalog in January), I outlined all the poinsettia, green leaves and all the veins.  It's really hard to capture in a picture; but, it sure gave them a really cool, sparkly shine.

I adhered the Old Olive cardstock ornaments with MonoMulti Purpose glue directly to SU's Silver and Gold Doilies.  Then I layered the poinsettia's, Santa's and Deer using SU Stampin' Dimentionals and placed the pieces onto the ornament. The doilies and the Wink of Stella really made these ornaments sparkle and shine!

All that was left was to cut about 7" of SU's Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, tie the twine to the caps of the ornament tags and put them in the holder.  Makes for a great gift!!!
