Winter Scene Gift Tags
by Sara Cook

3 tags

Good morning everyone. I'm so excite to be a designer for Memory Box.  This is my first post and hope you try this simply and fast tag project.  This sure will make your presents standout.  

Background wip

To make the sky background cut out 3 1/8" square from white card stock.  I used 80lb to keep the tag light weight.

Blend on the blue ink about 3/4 of the way down the square.  I like using Silicone Blue Fresh Ink as my snow cloud sky.  It has the perfect blend of blue and light grey to give the feel of snow in the air. 

After ink is dry press a clear embossing ink pad on the upper portion of the sky. Lightly sprinkle on ultra thick white embossing powder for snowflakes and heat set.  The heat gun can blow away some of the powder so, keep the heat gun at a distance until the powder starts to melt.

Scene WIP

Use just the inside frame and cabin die of the Family Cabin Frame die and cut out of white 80lb card stock.  Keep the pieces for the side of the cabin and door.   Die cut the framed scene again but out of a red card stock. Fussy cut out the smoke and snowbank leaving the frame.

Mask off the chimney on the cabin. Use a blending tool to add a light grey color to the smoke. Make the pressure random as color is added so it give it depth. For the grey I used Morning Mist Versa Fine Clair ink.  

Take the cabin walls and blend on a brown ink. I used Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Do the same thing for the door but with red ink.  I used Fired Brick Distress Ink to match my red frame. I took a scrap piece of paper and lightly colored it with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Then lightly pencil marked the outline of the house on the yellow colored paper.  Fussy cut the paper out and glued it behind the house.  Glue in the cabin walls and door pieces.

In the lower left corner of the snowbank write To: and From: with a red pen to match the door and frame.  I used NO. 6 Brown Marvy pen with the fine point.

Now for final assembly.  Glue the framed scene on the sky background paper and then glue the red frame over the white frame.  Add a piece of double sided tape to the back leaving the backing on the tape to peel off when ready to add to a gift.

Change up the color scheme to match your wrapping paper.  I used red that matched my wrapping paper.

Vintage Sled Christmas Gift Tags
by Michelle Bala

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a few Christmas gift tags I created using the new Vintage Sled Die. Grab an assorted mix of colored cardstock and let's get busy! I die cut the sled 9 times using red, pink, green, aqua, teal, light gray, dark gray, kraft, and black cardstock.

I assembled the slatted pieces with foam tape. I used a small fussy scissor to trim long thin strips of foam tape. I applied them to the base of the die cut sled, than lay the slatted pieces on top. You can also use liquid glue if you do not want a raised look.

After the sleds are assembled, set aside. Let's die cut all the trimmings!

I used the tree tops from the new Collage Dies, Pine Tree Collage, Wooded Glenn Collage, and Little Orchard Collage Dies. I also used Bauble Snowflakes Dies but unfortunately they are no longer available. However, Jolly Snowflake Trio Dies are  a perfect swap! I used the same cardstock colors plus I added white to die cut all the trimmings.

Now have fun layering the leaves in different colors, shapes and patterns! Layer each cluster with a snowflake and a gem.  The pink sled and red sled are my favorite!

I also added some shimmer to the sled, cluster of leaves and snowflake.

All the sentiments are from the stamp set Christmas Tiles. I used bakers twine in different shades to tie the tags to some candy canes. The tags can also make cute ornaments!

Hope you enjoyed this post and make some vintage sled gift tags!!!! Have a great weekend!
