1. Fold a sheet of water­color pa­per in half. Place sec­ond largest ban­ner die on top of pa­per so top of die ex­tends slightly past fold. Run through diecut­ting ma­chine to cre­ate a folded ban­ner tag. Re­peat to make two more tags.

2. Use white ink to stamp main im­age onto front of each tag. Cover stamped im­ages with white em­boss­ing pow­der and heat-em­boss.

3. Use white ink to stamp a sen­ti­ment onto each tag; cover words with plat­inum em­boss­ing pow­der and heat-em­boss.

4. Spritz white em­bossed im­ages with wa­ter and add Dis­tress Stains as de­sired. Be­gin by adding one color; let it run and dry slightly. Add an­other color. Spritz ad­di­tional wa­ter as needed. The white em­bossed im­ages will re­sist the stains al­low­ing those im­ages to stand out.

5. Punch a hole through top of each tag; tie rib­bons onto tags.

6. Em­bel­lish tags with rhine­stones as de­sired. •

1. Die-cut a tag from pat­terned pa­per. 2. Die-cut for­est bor­der from white card­stock.

3. Place die-cut bor­der piece on cut­ting pad and then place tag die on top of de­sired lo­ca­tion on bor­der; run through die-cut­ting ma­chine to cre­ate a for­est bor­der tag piece.

4. Stamp sen­ti­ment onto for­est bor­der tag piece us­ing red ink; ad­here to tag.

5. Stamp mouse im­age onto water­color pa­per with black ink; color and cut out. Ad­here to tag with foam squares.

6. Use pen to write name on eyelet la­bel; let ink dry com­pletely.

7. Stack name la­bel on top of tag align­ing holes. Be­gin­ning from back, thread tas­sel end through holes and thread op­po­site end of tas­sel through formed loop; pull gen­tly to se­cure.

Re­peat steps 1–7 for sec­ond tag.

1. Us­ing heavy-duty shears, cut metal sheet to 6 x 15 inches.

2. Start­ing at one end of red mat board piece, at­tach ad­he­sive sheet to white side of mat board. Peel off liner pa­per and place metal sheet on top of mat board. Note: It’s okay if there are small wrin­kles; they will be smoothed out when piece is em­bossed.

3. With metal side fac­ing die, cut two tool­box sides and one tool­box main body from metal/mat board piece.

4. To die-cut han­dle, turn mat board over so red side is fac­ing han­dle die and cut two pieces.

5. Place tool­box main body piece in em­boss­ing folder and run through one side of die-cut­ting ma­chine us­ing mul­tipur­pose plat­form and re­fer­ring to man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions. Note: Since mat board is thick, use mul­tipur­pose plat­form with no tabs to em­boss.

1. Stamp the fol­low­ing onto card­stock: wreath with green ink, bow with red ink, ban­ner with black ink, two sets of ber­ries with purple ink and two sets of ber­ries with red ink. Stamp sen­ti­ment onto ban­ner with purple ink.

2. Use co­or­di­nat­ing dies to cut out stamped im­ages. 3. Die-cut cir­cle tag from card­stock.

4. Use foam tape to ad­here wreath to tag. Ad­here bow, ban­ner and ber­ries to wreath.

Tie twine onto tag as a hanger.
