Making Tags with the Gift Card Envelopes & Trims Thinlits

Yesterday I posted boxes I made with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits.  Included in this set are dies to make an envelope as well as pieces to make tags.  My boxes used the envelope as the top of my box.  Today I’m highlighting the tags!

I used the piece below to make my tags and it’s really easy to get a variety of looks!

To achieve the look above, I cut the tag out with Very Vanilla cardstock AND the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

Then,  I cut the DSP. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. 

Next,  I glued the DSP to the Very Vanilla Cardstock. You can stamp a sentiment as I did or write your own.

Here are a few other ways to decorate the tag without using Designer Series Paper.

The stamp set, B.Y.O.P.  in the Annual Catalog  coordinates with these Thinlits and many of the sentiments will fit inside the tags!  This gives you lots of options!

Gift Card Envelope Thinlits Boxes

I love it when I buy a product and I can do more with it than I originally thought!  The top of my box is actually a gift card envelope!

You can make an envelope in no time at all with this die but it can also be used to cover a box!

These boxes are a nice size and would be perfect for a small gift or candy. Each box measures 4″ long, 2-3/4″ wide and 1-1/2″ deep.  Lots of possibilities!

To make the top of the box, it’s as easy as choosing paper, placing the large die on top and running it through your Big Shot. Fold on all of the score lines and it’s ready to place on top of your box! 

To make the box, choose a coordinating cardstock.  Cut the cardstock to 6-7/8″ x 5-9/16″ and score it at 1-1/2″ on all sides. Next, cut on the score lines shown in the picture below.

The next step is to cut a small amount off of each flap.  This helps the box to fold up with less bulk but if you skip this step, it’s fine.  In the picture below I have trimmed the flaps and shown where you’ll add adhesive.  Please note that this is the front side of the box.

Bring the flaps up to begin creating the box.  My fingers are on the flaps that have adhesive on them.

Here’s how it looks with the sides adhered.  Do this again on the other side and your box is done!

Place your lid on the box and then wrap it up with your favorite ribbon! The die also comes with extra pieces to create tags, which is what I used to create mine.  I added a glue dot at the top of the tag and slipped it under the ribbon.

I love to see your creations so if you make your own box, I’d love to see it! 

Below you’ll find a video from Stampin’ Up! showing how to make the box.  I made the bottom of the box just a little bit different so choose which one works for you.  If you’re reading this in an email, click here to head over to the Stampin’ Up! YouTube channel.

Gift Card Envelope

I finally had the chance to play around with my Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.  It is so quick and easy to make a cute envelope for your gift cards!  You could place a gift card inside and give it as is or if you don’t want the recipient to immediately know it is a gift card, place it in a larger box.  Double unwrapping!

I used Garden Green cardstock for my envelope.  Before running it through the Big Shot, I stamped snowflakes from the set Endless Wishes with Silver Metallic Encore Ink.  You do need to give this ink a chance to dry.  I used Real Red for my belly band.  I thought the envelope could use more sparkle so I used Silver Glimmer paper to place under my sentiment.  This always gives a WOW effect!  I embossed my sentiment with silver embossing powder, added a few rhinestones and I was done!

Have a great day!
