Hello everyone, it’s Sanna here today with my last project for this year. Today I’d like to share a little set with you, consisting of a Christmas gitft tag, a Christmas card and a tiny Christmas box.
I’ll share the steps for the box as well as the tag, the card is done in the same way as the tag.
First take a piece of patterend paper in your choice of pattern and colours and die cut it using the Pizza Box die.
Now take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and back it with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Then die cut the circles, the flower pattern and the scalloped square piece with your die cutting machine.
Next adhere the scalloped square piece onto the box. After that ink the flower piece in two tones (I used Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries here) to create more interest to the pattern. Then take the negative pieces and ink them blue (I used Distress Ink Salty Ocean for these parts).
Now adhere the flower pattern and the negative (blue inked) pieces in place. Then finish this step of the box by building it together.
Next add the same blue ink onto the bigger circle using an ink blending tool. Then take the smaller circle piece and add a stamped sentiment to it (I used Build Your Own Sentiment 1) and ink the edges red. Now layer the circles on top of each other and add Craft Drops around the inner circle for additional decor.
For the gift tag I combined the Pizza Box die cut set with the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.
First die cut the pieces shown in the gallery above. I used white cardstock and the same patterned paper that I used for the box as I wanted to create a fun matching set. After die cutting, repeat the inking, stamping and assembling process like on the box before.
For a fun additional detail I added a stamped sentiment (I used the Winter Sentiments stamp set here) on top of the layered circles for both the card and tag. It just adds a little additional detail to them.
For the card I used the same Pizza Box die cut set and additionally die cut the patterned paper for the background using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. The other steps are exactly the same like on the tag and the box before.
And by using only three colours it’s easy to keep the set harmonious. This gift set is perfect to carry a bracelet or small jewellery of some kind. If you change the color combination, you can easily do a completely different looking set using the exact same steps. Imagine using black and white and a hint of gold. Since the patterned paper I used is from my older stash, I added a few alternative paper suggestions to the product list below that I think would work nicely with red, white and blue color combination.
I hope that I inspired you with my little Christmas gift set today. This set could also easily be put into mail for those loved ones who we cannot see this year. I wish you all a lovely holiday time even though the situation we are all living in at the moment, is different then usual.
Wishing you all the best for this holiday season and lots of health!
