Twelve Days of Christmas Day Nine

Season's Greeting Gift Tin of Tags

I don't know about you but after the Holidays I loose track of all the tags I made, bought and received. So I thought what a lovely gift idea, tags and a place to put them. Today's project is how to make one for yourself or give as a gift.

Here is mine:

Supplies needed for the Tin:
Card Stock                               Gumball Green and Very Vanilla
Stamp Set                                 Christmas Lodge
Stampin Ink                              Cherry Cobbler
Stampin Markers                     Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Soft Suede
Punch                                       Corner
Framelit                                   Label Collection
Bling                                        Dazzlings Detail
Tools                                        Big Shot, Skinny Tin and Double Sided Sticky Tape

Directions for Tin:
  1. First measure your tin and cut your base layer (mine was 5 1/2" x 4 7/8). I used Gumball Green.
  2. Next I stamped the lodge on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock in Cherry Cobbler.  Then I stamped the lodge again on a separate piece of paper and cut that one out. I then placed the second one on top of first so I could mask it. I want my tree as close to the lodge as I could get.
  3. Then I stamped the large tree using Gumball Green over the edge of the lodge to get close. Then I stamped another tree and another to stamp off and show more trees. Then I took off the masked piece.
  4. Next I stamped Seasons Greeting at the top. Then I ran my image thru the Big Shot using SU Label Collection Framelit. I glued the two pieces together and punched the corners using SU corner punch, then using sticky tape glued them to my tin. The tricky part with these tins is getting the corner to match.
  5. The last step is optional, but I like sparkle and so I added allot of Dazzling Details to the lodge, trees and ground. I love the snowy effect that the Dazzling Details give.
Now while this is drying we can get started on the tags. I made 8 different ones for my tin, depending on which ones you like you can put 8-10 tags in the tin and it closes nicely.

I cased four tags from Michele Reynolds from a blog post she did last summer. They are the Candy Cane Tag, Ginger Bread Man, Christmas tree and Coffee Cup. I also cased some of my sisters tags she made for a make-in-take at a craft fair we did a few weeks ago and a few of my own.
