Hello Friends, Preeti here on the Rubbernecker blog today showcasing shaped gift tags using stamps and die cuts. Threre are so many different shapes of nesting dies and stand alone dies avaibale at Rubbernecker and they will all work beautifully for this project. I have made wine and coffee tags for my project today, but you can make a flower tag, a circle tag and many more endless possibilities.
One question I get asked very often is what do you do with all your cards and projects you make and I always say, I make them with love to give them away with love. Which means that every project I make should and always have a meaning and purpose behind it. I have realized projects with no purpose end up going no where. These serve a fun purpose, and make your gifts extra special.
Wine glass Tags:
Start by stamping the wine glass stamp from Rubbernecker with a light gray ink on a copic friendly cardstock.
Color them with your preference of wines or champaign shades.
Die cut the wine glass multiple times using a white cardstock. Die cut the colored wine glass as well using the coordinating wine glass die.
Add Glossy accent tot he wine option of the image and sprinkle glitter on it and keep it aside to dry.
- Create a thin paper hinge.
- For the hinge cut a strip of white cardstock to one inch wide and 1 1/2 inch long. Score in the center.
- Adhere this hinge between colored and die cut wine glass and a white die cut wine glass. this hinge
- The Image to the left shows how the hinge helps to create an openable tag.
- Stamp the thanks to the center of the inside wine glass as shown in the figure to the left.
- Adhere a ribbon to the back of the wine tag.
The image on the below shows the tag in action!!!!
I understand not everybody likes wine so I have also created a tag for all the coffee lovers out there as well.
Start by stamping the Coffee bean background stamp using ColorFuse Mocha Ink
Color the coffee beans using copic colors
Die cut the color background using the nested banner die.
Die cut the banner two more times uisng white cardstock and adhere directly behind the colored banner. This will add thickness to the tag and make it durable.
Stamp and emboss the sentiment on black with white embossing powder. Cut the sentiment into a fish tail label.
Punch a hole on the top of the tag and thread a juste string thought he hole
Adhere the sentiment label with foam adhesive to the tag
Add a few brown gemstones and you are done.
I hope I have inspired you to use your shaped dies and coordinating dies differently through these projects. Please don’t forget to add your beautiful projects to the Rubbernecker facebook fan page, we always love seeing them and being inspired by them. Have a great weekend and I will see you next time.
