Royal Inking Blog Hop- Pretty Packages & Tags

Hi Friends!

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature pretty packages and beautiful tags to inspire your holiday gift-giving. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Looks a little “messy” in still life but it’s actually gorgeous in real life with all the shiny papers & variety of ribbons.

I have two projects for you today- one is a “Tag” Card & the second is a treat box. The Tag Card is a fun & inexpensive way to give a set of tags. The holiday box is a pretty package that is filled filled with one candy (a Reeses’s tree); also not too expensive. These are both great if you have a large group that you wish to share a little cheer without breaking your bank account & without the receiver feeling obligated to return a gift. I used papers from the 12 x 12 Speciality DSP called Whimsy & Wonder with a few other scrap pieces that I had in my stash.

Let me share the Tag card first. Cut a piece of DSP to 10″ X 10″. Then score at 5″ on both sides. Then score one of the 5 x 5 sections at an equal diagonal.

Next fold the card into quarters with the diagonal fold on top. Next take the next 5 x 5 layer & score approximately 1″ from the original triangled piece. Repeat at approximately 1″ more for the third square. Leave the last 5 X 5 piece to serve as a base.

You’ll need large envelopes, 5-3/8” square or bigger. I have 6-3/8” envelopes that work with my 6 x 6 cards so l’ll use these.

Next I made a lot of tags using the Tailor Made Tag & the Giving Gifts dies. Also I used a punch & a die to make tags too. If you want a long tag you can cut your paper the width of your punch/die & thread it through the lower part so it isn’t cut. (See pictures below)

Here are pictures of some of the tags

Let’s look at the treat box again. I had some of the Tombstone treat boxes left from Halloween so I turned them into holiday treat boxes. I cut off the “legs” & turned it sideways & punched a hole at the top for my Polished Pink ribbon. The Tombstone package gives you 8 boxes with the top & bottom pieces being identical. But I made my own bottom for the box using Thick Basic White card stock & duplicating the box pattern (minus the decorative top). This will give me 16 boxes & I’ll use as little gifts for one of my church groups.

Thank you for hopping along with us. If you get stuck during the Blog Hop, please use this line-up as a guide:

  1. Wow! Wow! Wow! What spectacular projects. While I love the holder with all the tags, I’m immediately drawn to the peanut butter cup box. What fun! Such a great post!
