Valentine’s Day Gift Tags

Hello We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here, to share with you some adorable Valentines tags. These cute tags are so easy to create with the new Trim and Score board. I love tools that have many different uses and this tool has an endless list of uses and projects that you can create. My favorite thing about this tool is that it’s two tools in one (a trimmer and a score board).

To create these cute tags, I only used three tools (the Trim & Score board, Hole Reinforcer Punch, and scissors). The first thing I did was create the tags by trimming the patterned paper into a rectangle and trimming the top two corners off to create a tag shape.

The main focal point on these tags is the patterned paper rosette behind the wood veneer sentiment. These rosettes are so easy to make!. They’re one of my favorite embellishments because they make such a big impact. Each rosette is made from a 1 ½” x 12” strip of patterned paper.

After trimming the patterned paper strips I scored all three strips every 1/4 inch. I wanted these rosettes to add texture to the tags but not a ton of bulk.

I should probably tell you about the products I’m using, huh? This awesome collection is “Main Squeeze” from Crate Paper. It’s perfect for ALL of your Valentine’s Day projects.

The main embellishment on these tags is obviously the rosette/the wood veneer sentiment. I kept the rest of the embellishments very simple with only a couple of stickers and some glittery washi.

The finishing touch on the tag is the patterned paper hole reinforce that I created with the hole reinforcer punch. You guys, this punch is brilliant and has a permanent spot on my desk.

Easy Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts

Happy Halloween friends! Aly here with you today to share a cute and practical project idea to help stretch your crafting budget. This year I collected lots of adorable Halloween papers and embellishments thinking I would use all of them, of course. Well, today’s Halloween. How’s my project list coming? I think it’s safe to say I have a bit more Halloween product leftover than I had planned, LOL!

Don’t put those Halloween collections away quite yet. You can still put them to good use over the next few weeks so you can get a bit more mileage out of them even if Halloween is over. Check out these Thanksgiving hostess gifts I made with my new my Hexagon Clear Cut Punch, the DIY Party Board, and some papers from the…wait for it…Pink Paisless Spellcast collection!

I selected some of the less Halloween-themed papers from the collection that include fall colors, and then grabbed some of my favorite We R tools.

I followed the directions on the DIY Party Board to make treat cones, and cut my paper according to the directions. I love that everything I need is right on the board!

I assembled my treat cones, filled them with goodies, and then closed the top flaps with my favorite adhesive when working with 3D paper crafts–Red Double Sided Sticky Tape from American Crafts. Can’t live without it.

Next, I made some simple gift tags using my Hexagon Clear Cut Punch and one of the papers from the collection. I used my punch to capture select patterns from the paper. Using the “punch anywhere” feature, I was able to use the exact spot on my 12×12 paper that I wanted. There are so many possibilities with the Clear Cut Punches!

I used some Heidi Swapp planner alpha stickers to add sentiments to the hexagon tags. Then I cut out some gold foil monograms from the vellum paper in the collection, and added them together with the hex tags I punched. Including a silk fall leaf with the tags adds the perfect touch for Thanksgiving! I punched them all with my Crop-A-Dile and then attached an eyelet where I threaded some gold Stitch Happy Metallic Thread and tied it in a bow.

I used my double sided red tape again to attached the completed tags to the treat cones. I love how they turned out!

I also love that I was able to use my tools to help make the most out of my Halloween themed paper collection. Being able to select the exact fall colors and patterns I wanted from the collection really helps to stretch it farther than I could otherwise.

Thanks for joining me today. Be sure to stop by each day this week for more projects from our team featuring the new Clear Cut Punches!
