Easy Gift bag Tags and note cards


Hello everyone. Today I would like to share an easy project for gift tags or small note cards. I make up small 'Welcome Bags' for the church I attend. They hand them out to visitors and they contain small things like a mug or pen/notebook, tea and chocolates or things like that.  I change up how I decorate the bags based on the season or what I have on hand. 

This week I needed to make up some more and I had the Regency Park paper pack on my desk. I grabbed some retired yellow ribbons and the Petal Park bundle and got to work.  

I first stamped the flowers and leaves onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock with Mango Melody and Shaded Spruce ink.  I then used a Blender Pen to color the rest of the images in. 

I stamped the word 'Welcome' from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set on to a tag made with the Tailor Made Tags dies.  I added the flowers and leaves to the tag and attached to my bag. 



To make the note cards I used a piece of 6x3 Basic White cardstock, scored at 3 and folded in half. I attached a strip of Regency Park Designer Series paper to one side and added my flowers and leaves.  To decorate the 3x3 envelope, I used a scrap of Regency Park designer series paper glued to the flap of the envelope and cut to match the flap.  I love decorating the envelopes this way as it uses up some scraps and looks super fancy. 



The Petal Park stamps and paper punch are so easy to use and I am certain I will get a lot of use out of them!

Last Chance List is now Live!

 The Sale begins today! Yay! Shop here for retiring products, some as much as 60% off.   In the past I recommended to purchase stamps with matching dies or punches at the Bundled price to save 10%, however, during this retirement sale, some dies are 60% off, some stamps 10-40% off, so it actually might be better to purchase stamps and dies or punches separately.  Be sure to check for the best price.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me.  Email
