Hello, it’s Angela and today I want to share with you a project that my girlfriends & I created this past weekend. We wanted to create a fun & different way to give a gift cards for the holidays so we decided to make a Christmas themed tag. Here’s how we created it.
- Die cut the tag & overlay from 11” x 4.25” olive cardstock.
- Die cut the Stand Up Helper Tree die at the bottom of the tag & decorate with Red Glitter Dots Peel-offs and a Gold Star Peel-off.
- Die cut bricks from beige & red cardstock.
- Die cut the stocking, cuff, hanging loop and nail & accessories from patterned paper and solid color cardstock.
- Add a 4.25” x 3” piece of patterned paper behind the tag at the top.
- Glue the beige brick grid onto the tag and glue the red bricks into the open spaces.
- Poke a hole in the bricks and glue the “nail” in place so it looks like it is coming out of the hole.
- Assemble and glue the layers of the stocking. Add Red Glitter Dots to the points on the cuff. Use foam tape or pop dots to secure the stocking to the tag.
- Add a wood grain paper rectangle measuring 4.25” x .75” to the tag above the bricks.
- Stamp the sentiment on beige cardstock , mat onto red & black cardstock; add to the tag just above the bricks.
- Punch a hole at the top of the tag. Set an eyelet in the hole. Add 2 ribbons and a piece of pom pom yarn.
- Secure the gift card with a glue dot behind the Stand Up Helper Tree at the bottom of the tag.
Invite your friends over & have a tag making party! Each person can create her own gift tag. I hope you give this project a try!

Hello, it’s Angela and I want to share with you a great way to use your Els van de Burgt Studio Tags & More dies for the holiday gift-giving season! I was inspired to create this from a blog post that I saw which used packaged tags. So, by using a few basic craft supplies, you can easily create your own tags and make them into gift card pockets! Let’s get started!
To create the tag:
- Die cut the tag from black card stock and the finished size is 7” x 4 1/4”.
- Die cut the overlay die with patterned paper and glue to the black tag and trim as needed.
To create the pocket:
- Cut black cardstock to 6 1/4” x 4”.
- Score at 1/2” and 1” on one long side and both short sides.
- Fold on all score lines and cut as shown in photo.
- Tape edges with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
- Cut the designer paper for the pocket front at 4 1/8” x 2 7/8”.
- Cut 2 designer papers at 3/8” x 2 7/8” for the sides of the box and one at 3/8” x 4 1/8” for the box bottom.
- Set aside while we decorate the tag.
- Cut designer paper at 4 3/4” x 4” and round the bottom two corners, glue to tag front.
- Cut designer paper to 3/4” x 4” and round the top two corners, glue to tag front.
- Punch a hole and set an eyelet at the top of the tag and tie a red ribbon.
- Remove the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape from the pocket, creating the “box” and attach to the tag front.
- Here is a side view of the tag
To create the gift card cello bag:
- A cello bag is used for the gift card and to hold the wrapped chocolates.
- Mini Hershey bars were wrapped in designer paper and added with the gift card.
- Tie the cello with baker’s twine.
Decorating the tag back:
- Cut design paper to 4 1/4” x 2 7/8”, glue to tag.
- Die cut ‘Merry Christmas’ from Shimmer Sheetz backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape (using the Metal Adaptor Plate) and add to tag back
Add your cello bag with gift card and candies into the pocket and you are done! This is a quick and easy project to make your holiday shopping a breeze! I hope you give this project a try and the same technique is perfect for other occasions too such as birthday and Father’s Day!

Hi, it’s Angela and I am so excited to share this project with you. My friend Nicole created a festive Halloween project featuring pull out tags. Let me share with how she created the project using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, Peel-off stickers and Silk Microfine Glitter.
*A piece of cardstock 17 1/4 x 11 1/2 was scored to create four panels, pockets & a flap.
*Inside view of the book with the tags in the pockets.
*Four pieces of pattern paper were cut to decorate the back of the book.
*Letter & numbers were die cut from black cardstock to create the front title of the book “October 31st” and it was glued on the front cover.
*A pumpkin peel-off was placed on double sided adhesive, glittered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polished, then colored with Copic markers and then cut out.
*A magnet was placed between the pumpkin and black cardstock circle to create a magnetic closure for the book front.
*Panel # 1 has a pattern paper tag that has been scored twice and it creates a pull down tag which was decorated with a stamp image and metal skeleton.
*Panel # 2 and panel # 3 have tags folded once and google eyes and photos were used to decorate the tags.
*Inside the book was decorated with patterned paper behind the pockets and on panel #4, a patterned tag was placed on the pocket front.
*Four back cardstock tags were die cut from assorted tag dies.
*The cardstock tags for the pockets were decorated with photos of the kids in costumes and ECD double sided tape was applied to the tags and then ECD Silk Microfine Glitter was applied and polished in.
*On the other two tags, glitter was applied and ribbon was placed on all tags.
*The names of each child were die cut and glued to the tag back along with photos.
*The positive and negative images from the alphabet dies were used to create “Brody’s” name and a gold metallic marker was used to write “My boys 2013”.
Nicole did a wonderful job on this cute tag book! Creating one is easy and fun to decorate and embellish. Pull out your photos, dies & glitter and make a tag book keepsake for yourself!

Hi! It’s Angela and today I wanted to share a project created using the brand new Maritime peel-offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love projects with nautical themes and the new peel-offs and the BoBunny Boardwalk paper inspired this project. The two paired together perfectly to create this fun and easy masculine chipboard book.
Instructions for the cover:
