12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 10

Narelle Fasulo - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Week 10 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas. That can only mean that Christmas is getting very close – which is a scary thought! Today I bring you another project in our 12 Weeks of Christmas series, this time from Jenny Hayward. I hope you like this project.

Today Jenny brings you a Tag A Bag Gift Box and matching card.

When you are looking for gift packaging ideas Stampin’ Up! offer an assortment of bags and boxes that with some simple decorating they can make your gift very special. To hold some yummy treats you can’t go past the Tag A Bag Gift Boxes. These assemble very quickly without any adhesive at all. These boxes can be found on p 201 of the Stampin Up! Catalogue and come in a pack of 8 for $11.95. Great value!!

Here is the box for you.

For this she has punched a strip of Real Red Cardstock with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, wrapped around a strip of the Nordic Noel DSP and tied around some Real Red Satin Ribbon. She has the tutorial below. The cute tag is simply a number of stars cut with the Stars Framelits from Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red. In the centre of the smallest star I added a single Gold sequin and added a small pearl coloured with the “red” colour in the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities pack. She added a length of the Gold Sequin Trim behind the star. The greeting is from Petite Pairs and cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits.

She made a matching card to go with the box.

She cut a large star from the Whisper White card and adhered some of the same Nordic Noel DSP behind it. Then layered stars in Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red to match the box although these were slightly smaller. The smaller red star is punched from the Itty Bitty Accents punch set. She added a single Gold sequin and coloured Adhesive Pearl to this too. The greeting is from the Bright and Beautiful set stamped in Real Red. She wrapped around some Real Red Satin Ribbon and added a bow separately. So much easier to add the bow separately. It sits so much better. She always has a tussle with the card and the ribbon. ;) She finished it off with some single Gold sequins around the card.


Cut cardstock to measure 9.5cm x 28cm (3 ¾” x 11”). Punch along both edges with the Confetti Stars Border Punch.

Cut DSP 3.5cm x 28cm (1 3/8” x 11”). Adhere slong the centre of the punched strip.

Run adhesive along the back of your card strip with adhesive of your choice. Jenny used Fast Fuse.

Place the middle of your card strip at the centre of the top surface on the Acetate sleeve for the box and adhere down. Wrap the cardstock around the sleeve adhering each side as you go. TIP: When you wrap the cardstock around each side run the Bone Folder along the edge to give a crisper fold. Check it out in the photo how Jenny has done it.

Adhere the ends together at the base of the box.

Wrap your Red Satin Ribbon around the box and tie in a bow. Create a tag of your choice to finish.

I am sure you could think of a few friends/workmates that you could whip up a few of these for?? Fill them with some chocolates, cookies even a small gift. Decorate them as you like.
