SU Festival of Trees for FM

I am excited to be the hostess this week at the Friday Mashup #181.

I have to admit, I have  an ulterior motive…

I am asking for ideas for my holiday gift tagging needs (wink, wink.)

I can’t wait to see what you crafty ones will share with everyone at the Friday Mashup!

Project Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Festival of Trees
INK: SU Pear Pizzazz, SU Lost Lagoon
PAPER: SU Glimmer Paper (last year’s) SU Pear Pizzazz, SU Lost Lagoon, SU Whisper White
ACCESSORIES: SU Glimmer Brad, SU 1/8″ Silver Ribbon
TOOLS: SU Bitty Banner Framelits, SU Tree Punch, SU Oval Framelits, SU 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 1 3/4″ circle punches, SU Banner Framelits

Be sure to check out what the creative Design Team has to share this week as inspiration.

Some basic directions for making this tag:

 I used the largest Banner die on the Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I cut two of them and then cut off the pennant ends off of one by lining the straight end at 3 3/4″  on my trimmer. After it was cut, I scored it at 3″ and folded it over and attached to the other full cut banner. I used the smallest banner die for the little tail in the middle.

The initial hole on the tag for hanging is 1 3/8″. Then I punched out of Lost Lagoon cardstock a 1 3/8″ circle with enough room around it to punch a 1 3/4″ circle that left a thin donut to border around the hole punched on the tag. I made another Glimmer donut the same way using the 1 3/4″ punch and the 2″ punch and put that glimmer border around the Lost Lagoon one.

You can adapt the tag with any stamp set you have and put it on

vinegars/oils, lotion, bubble bath, room deodorizer, coffee syrups- any thing you hang something off of!

Send me a pic if you create a tag with this template- hey, do one for this challenge!

  1. Another great project, Cindy. I love all the “bling”. So festive. It was funny to see you mentioned about your ulterior motive. I have been thinking about tags for days! It will be fun to see what folks will create. B

  2. Your tag is so pretty Cindy! The silver looks so pretty against the Pear Pizzazz and Lost Lagoon!

    I’m so sorry I missed this challenge…my oldest is having some medical problems and hubby and I went out of town for my birthday. I’m not organized enough to work ahead 😦
