Flourishes Blog Hop - A Gift For You

If you’ve been searching for a perfect set that give class and elegance to your Christmas gift packaging, search no more! Today, Flourishes is introducing a brand new set, "A Gift for You," that will fit the bill! Spellbinders™ is thrilled to be joining in on the fun!

This set was designed to coordinate with Flourishes best-selling Christmas stamp sets and of course, Spellbinders Die Templates! "A Gift For You" was drawn and designed by Marcella Hawley. It offers eight (8) different tag styles and eight (8) different sentiments to fit inside!

With this set, I created a gift and tag set. The image I used in my tag is compatible to S4-290 Labels Fourteen #4 (smallest size die is #1).

Supplies Spellbinders S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-219 Nested Poinsettias, I2-1005 Impressabilities™ Circles and F-002 Green Premium Craft FoilFlourishes "A Gift For You"; Ink: Tsukineko, Ranger Ink; Glitter: Ranger Inks; Cardstock: WorldWin Papers, Aspire Beargrass Linen  Cover & Colormates Cardinal Red; Marker: Copics; Misc: Brad, Foam Tape

I created the gift tag first by stamping all the images onto cardstock. The top part I stamped in green. With Copics, I colored the ornaments and highlighted with glitter. After it dried, I cut the piece to use as a dimensional accent.

Next, I lined the images up with S4-290 Labels Fourteen #4 (tag) and #5 (foil mat) to cut/emboss. Note that I embossed the foil with I2-1005 Impressabilities Circles and sanded. Beautiful! Then assemble all the pieces of the tag with foam tape.

I found an online tutorial on how to create a box. If you do a search, you will find many. Before assembling the lid, I stamped the Poinsettia image.

Then I cut/embossed S4-219 Nested Poinsettias. I bent and curled the petals. Then poked a hole through the flower and the lid, and secured with a yellow brad.

Here's a separate look of the box and tag. An idea for the tag is to punch a hole and thread a ribbon for a hanging tag. Hope you enjoyed my project!

This stamp set coordinates well with many of Spellbinders Die Templates. Here's a list of suggestions: S4-290 Labels Fourteen, S4-291 Labels FifteenS4-301 Labels Sixteen,  S4-293 Lacey Circles, S4-304 Eyelet Circles, S4-292 Beaded Circles, S4-295 Lacey Squares or S4-305 Eyelet Squares. So many different choices! Do you have any of these die templates?
