Top Note wedding gift tags for the guys

These are the boys’ gift tags that I made for my lovely bride so she can pop them on a special present she has for each of the boys in her bridal party.

I tried to pick colours that coordinated with the boys’ colour, which was champagne, and so I used colours Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla.

Again, to keep in theme with the gals’ tags, I used the SU Top Note Bigz Die with the Big Shot to cut out the gift tags.  Then I used the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots textured impression.  The label was also made with the Big Shot and the Lots of Tags Sizzlet dies.

I also printed the boy’s names on vellum, punched them out with the small oval punch and then used mini glue dots to adhere the vellum to the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I didn’t think boys would like pretty ribbon on their gift tags, so I used linen thread for them, which I wrapped around the front card. 

Like the gals’ tags, the boys’ tags are also booklets.  To keep in theme, in the middle top note, you can see I also stamped the damask from Friends 24-7, but this time in Sahara Sand ink.  And so the gift tags could slide apart, I held them together with some SU Hodgepodge Hardware (retired).  Again a bit more grunge boy-look than girlie!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Top Note wedding gift tags for the gals

These are the wedding gift tags that I made for my lovely bride so she can pop them on a special present she has for each of the people in her bridal party, and her mum!

I tried to pick colours that coordinated with the bridesmaid dresses, and so these colours were So Saffron, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla.

I used the SU Top Note Bigz Die with the Big Shot to cut out the gift tags.  Then I used the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots textured impression.  The labels were also made with the Big Shot and the Lots of Tags Sizzlet dies. 

I printed the girl’s names on vellum and then used mini glue dots to adhere the vellum to the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I covered the mini glue dots with lovely pearls.  Again, the ribbon is non-SU – I so wish I’d been able to buy some of the new ribbons we’ll get in the new catalogue – but it wasn’t to be 😦

I made the gift tags like little booklets – so there is a front, middle and back.  In the middle, you can see I stamped the damask from Friends 24-7 in So Saffron ink – doesn’t it look gorgeous?!  I really wanted to have a middle page for the bride and groom to have a place where they might want to write a special message that might be a real keepsake for the person they were giving the gift to.

And so the gift tags could slide apart, I held them together with a rhinestone brad, glammed up with a filigree designer brad.

Top Note purse

There are lots of these cute boxes floating around the net, but this is the first one I’ve made.  And I made quite a few because they were one of my free gifts for my guests to my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch, a couple went to my daughter’s school as gifts for the Mother’s Day stall, and one was a gift to my cousin for hosting a stamp-a-stack.

I made the box using Melon Mambo cardstock, which was embossed using the Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then cut out with the Top Note Die.  The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and was stamped in Melon Mambo.  I punched a large oval from the leftover of the polka dot Melon Mambo cardstock and layered it onto Pink Pirouette textured cardstock, punched from the Scallop Oval punch.  I finished off the box with a pink rhinestone brad and Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon.
