Several years ago, I learned how to make a cute card that is also a little box filled with tags. I altered the measurements so it would measure 5" x 7" when finished. I thought it would offer a few more opportunities to get creative with some tags. But this time, I chose to stick with the great little tags that are included on the Cardstock Sticker sheet that comes in the Christmas Treasures collection....but who knows about future projects.

This is the card when it is closed:

Gift Box Card

I just adore the plaids in this collection! I added two of the pieces from the layered chipboard stickers to spread some "peace and joy." Then I "doctored" up one of the poinsettias and holly leaves from the Noteworthy pack. I snipped between the petals of the flower and the holly leaves and then rolled a stylus on the back side. Then I flipped them over and pressed gently in the center to lift the leaves and petals. It completely changes the look of the pieces.....

I matted the inside of the "box" and added another great sentiment from the Noteworthy pack in the center. I matted the sticker tags onto red cardstock and then again onto white so it would be easier to add the "to and from" to the back. Or these little tags could also be added to a package purely for decoration. I tied a piece of baker's twine through the hole I punched with my crop-a-dile.

This is definitely the type of card you would want to send at the beginning of December so the tags could be used on packages. A card like this always inspired me to drag out my dies to see what I can come up with for tags. But I couldn't resist using these cute little stickers instead. They are just too sweet!

I used the BoBunny Christmas Treasures collection for this fun project and you can find it here.

Stay tuned for some more great tag ideas......
