I love to make gift tags for all my gifts. It takes no time at all making three at a time! Here’s a look at some of the different projects I made.

Halloween treat ideas using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle by Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These tags are perfect for treat bags and boxes. You can use the ready made Tiny Treat Boxes and Pillow Boxes from Stampin’ Up! or make your own little treat bag from a piece of 6 x 6 DSP like I did below.

Christmas bag idea using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle from Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little bag is quick & easy to make! Score a piece of 6 x 6 DSP at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 on one side then score the other side at 2 1/4 and 3 3/4. I used the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Fold on the score lines then cut along the score lines and trim as shown below.  Adhere with Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue for a strong hold.

I pinched the sides and punched a hole at the top with a hole punch.  I thread the ribbon through the tag and bag  and secured with a bakers twine. I added the jingle bell before tying a bow. The adorable tag is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

I had fun sponging the Halloween tags! If you look on page 56 in the Holiday Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration! The catalog is full of so many great ideas be sure to check them out and CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) away! This tag was sponged to look like the candy corn treat enclosed!

The Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon wraps it all up for a a nice presentation!

The Trip of Tags Dies has extra little dies for the holidays like these jack-0-lanterns I used on the tag for my pillow box.

How cute are these?! There’s a snowflake for winter and hearts for Valentine’s or other “lovely” projects! You’ll be seeing more of these soon as I have been having fun creating all kinds of projects! The pillow boxes are great for enclosing gift cards, treats, or small gifts.

These tags make sweet & simple 3 x 3 note cards too.  I made this adorable Halloween one to enclose with the Paper Pumpkin treat boxes I sent my daughter for her dorm residents. She loves books so this pattern from the Monster Bash  Designer Series Paper was perfect for her!

I popped up the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the raven from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to cover up the hole at the top of the die. My daughter is very familiar with ravens from the Tower of London. (I wouldn’t get that close!!!)

N is for Night Before Christmas

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I am showcasing the Night Before Christmas Suite. Check out what Santa is up to in this fun video…

The Night Before Christmas Suite is showcased on pages 24-26 in the Holiday Catalog. You can use the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes with the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and have instant Christmas Cards! Talk about quick & easy!  Today I’m sharing how I used the Night Before Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make some fun little Christmas treats.

Stampin' Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper sweet treat gift ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Take a look at all the different fun patterns in this short video!

This candy cane treat is quick & easy! The DSP makes a nice presentation for a sweet little holiday treat. (You could even put it on a gift as a tag!)

Stampin' Up! Tiny Keepsakes Bundle sweet candy cane treat idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The DSP measures 2 x 6 and is adhered to a Real Red 2 x 7 layer. I use a hole punch to punch two tiny holes on either side of the candy cane to thread the ribbon through and tie a bow. I added a couple of glue dots to secure the candy cane in place. The tag is from the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle. I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it out with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies. I used White Bakers Twine to thread a jingle bell and tag and tied it around the candy cane. Quick & easy!

For my next project I made a fold over box.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright fold over box gift idea for friends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment I used is from the stamp set, Making Christmas Bright (in the annual catalog). I got the dimensions for the box from Sam Donald (Pootles.com). The light bulbs pattern from the Night Before Christmas DSP was perfect to go with what I put inside the box.

I host a cookie exchange with my friends every year and these will be perfect for their table favors. I got the bulbs from Hobby Lobby and filled them with mini M&M’s for a little treat or ornament to hang on their tree as a reminder of our special friendship!

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright fold over box gift idea for friends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the measurements to make the box:

  • Very Vanilla or Crumb Cake cardstock: 7 x 6 1/4, score ont he long side at 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6. Score on the short side at 1 1/2 and 4 3/4.
  • DSP Panels: (2) 3 x 1 1/4, (2) 3/4 x 1 1/4, (1) 3/4 x 3
  • Very Vanilla: 1 x 2 3/4 to stamp sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Scraps of Real Red, Old Olive, and Early Espresso to punch bulbs with Christmas Bulb Builder Punch

Fold and burnish the score lines. Cut, notch, and trim as shown below.

Stampin' Up! fold over box template - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Add adhesive to the notched pieces on each end and in the middle on both sides and assemble the box. (You can view the video from Pootles.com to see how to put the box together HERE. *She put tealights in the box.)

I can’t decide which color box I like better, Very Vanilla or Crumb Cake? I need to make 10 more. Leave me a comment and let me know which color you think I should make for the rest of them.

So what do you do the Night Before Christmas? Every year our family gets together at my sister’s (~24 people ) for dinner on Christmas Eve.  (I love making the table favors for everyone!) After dinner we play “Yankee Swap”. Everyone brings a wrapped gift (~$25) and we draw numbers to see who goes first and so on. The first person opens a gift and then the next person can choose to take their gift or open a different one and it continues on so you never know what gift you will end up with til the very end.  It is always so much fun and every year there seems to be a “hot gift” that everyone wants. As our family has grown it is a fun way to have a little gift exchange without breaking the bank!  The best gift of all is just being together as a family and remembering the reason for the season!

Have a wonderful day!
