I whipped these up in an afternoon (the baking took longer!) I started off by adhering the patterned paper to a piece of Sizzix Scoreboard. Using my Xyron sticker maker to apply the dry adhesive made it super fast and easy.
Die cut the luggage tag. Make sure the patterned paper side faces down when making your sandwich!
|Nice fit! I love it when a plan comes together.|
It's easiest to decorate the tags while they are still flat. I used stamping and embossing to jazz these up a bit. A little Distress ink around the edges gives them some nice depth.
Look at how nicely that gift card fits. I wrote a little note under each card on the inside of the tag before I stapled them shut. Make sure the card is pushed right back against the fold when you go to staple it. You can set the staple in about 1/16th of an inch and still have room. The card is in there tightly enough that a single staple holds it firmly in place. If you use a thinner chipboard or cardstock you would probably need to fasten the bottom as well so the card wouldn't fall out. Check it and see!
I thought, why stop now? I like to give a bag of cookies to the bus driver too and thought his gift should look nice as well. Fortunately the Place Card & Flowers die makes a great bag topper! I just cut it out of patterned cardstock, did a little stamping, and cut out the scalloped circle to cover up the "flower" part. (being non-seasonal and all ;-) ) Now the cookies are tasty and festive.
Are you thinking those gingersnaps are looking mighty tasty? You are in luck because last year I shared a free download of this recipe and other family favorites. You can find the link HERE at the bottom of the post.
