Quick and Easy Gift Tag Tutorial with Echo Park Gnome for Christmas

Hello, Friends!  It’s Throwback Thursday and I’m rolling in late with this Quick and Easy Gift Tag Tutorial .  Today we’re working with Echo Part Gnome for Christmas to make these fun tags.  These make great stocking stuffers, Secret Santa Gifts and would even look great on the Christmas tree!  You could attach them to pretty ribbon with a clothespin and then they’d be home decor, too.  Use whatever paper collection you have on hand, or even mix and match.  What fun!

Save Time with G45 Tags and the Tag Die

I cannot count the number of projects I’ve made using Graphic 45 Tags as a base.  They are attractive, sturdy and such a time saver!  Pair the tags up with the Regular Tag Die, and you’ll have these sweet gift tags made in no time flat.

If you have an envelope punch board (and really,  you should!) pull it out and make the size envelope that calls for 6×6 paper.  Since we’re using the 6×6 paper pad, there’s no measuring or cutting necessary.  Just put the paper in the punch board, score, punch, fold and you’re done!

What’s on the Back of the Tags?

To cover up the ends of the belly band on the back of the tags, cut a 3″ x 4″ panel of white cardstock,, stamp with the Gnome for Christmas stamps and adhere.  Cute, right?

Die cut a small tag and stamp with small images, spatter with gold paint and add a Christmas charm.  This is a great place to write the recipient’s name.


Dress your tags up with a cluster of jingle bells, Christmas beads, mulberry flowers and foliage.  You can make your own flowers, or save time with pre-made flowers.

Gnome for Christmas adhesive brads and gold glitter stars add a bit of sparkle and shine to the tag design.

Spellbinders Autumn Wonder Envelope Pocket Card Tutorial

Spellbinders Autumn Wonder Envelope Pocket Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s Make & Take Tuesday, and I’m here to share this Spellbinders Autumn Wonder Envelope Pocket Card Tutorial with you.   It’s bursting with fall colors, die cut images, florals and all the things we love the most about fall.

Spellbinders recently released their Envelope of Wonder dies, and I could not resist purchasing the Autumn Wonder set.  All the pretty fall leaves, pumpkins, mushrooms, foliage, acorns and squash just called my name.  I’ve been waiting for a free moment to play with this set, and today is it!

Instead of using the Envelope of Wonder Die to create my envelope pocket, I pulled out my trusty envelope punch board.  Part of today’s tutorial will show you how to create a 5″ x 4″ envelope pocket and then line it.  If you have the die, you can skip that part of the tutorial.  But if you’ve always wanted to know how to create and line a custom envelope, I think you’ll enjoy the process.

Fall Fun

My envelope and my card are made with Carta Bella Fall Fun patterned papers.  The envelope pocket sits on a 6×6 kraft card base that I’ve dressed up with patterns and solids from the collection. One of the things that drew me to the Autumn Wonder die set was the fact that I could cut the shapes from scraps.  And you all know how I feel about using up my scraps.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card features a flap page and a pocket.

You’ll learn how to make this clever pocket and hidden journaling card in the video tutorial, too.

Of course, there has to be a little tea wallet to go with the honey stick that is in the envelope pocket.

And of course the tea has to be Pumpkin Spice.  Anything else would be wrong!
