Last Friday was my son Carter’s last day at his current daycare. I’m truly excited about him going to a new school, but we will miss his caregiver, Astride, dearly! He has been with her since he was 4 months old, and she feels like a part of our family. I felt it appropriate to give her a nice thank you gift as a going away present. Of course, no gift would be complete without an adorable Stampin’ Up! gift tag.
Today’s project features the Chalk Talk stamp set from Stampin’ Up! It turned out super cute, and it was really QUICK and easy to make.
I started by stamping the “A Little Something Special for a Very Special Somone” tag on Whisper White in Coastal Cabana ink to match the stripes of the bag I got from thirty-one (if you’ve never checked out their site, they have the most adorable bags!). Then I used my framelits die to cut out my tag and mounted it on a panel of Strawberry Slush card stock, which I trimmed to fit my tag.
Next, I cut 1/4″ strips of DSP from the 2013-2015 In Color Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack in Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush. I used my bone folder to curl the paper to make it look like ribbon. Then I fastened it to my tag with a brad. I punched a hole in the tag and added some Strawberry Slush stretch ruffle trim (retired product). I tied that in a knot and added a second piece to tie around the handle of the thirty-one bag.
This project only took a few minutes to complete, but I love the way it turned out. Astride loved receiving her gift. In fact, she cried when I gave it to her. I think that was mostly because she was saying goodbye to my precious little boy, but the gift tag could have had something to do with it too. LOL. I would appreciate it if you would pin this project to Pinterest if you like it as much as I do. You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of this post below the supply list and cards stock cuts. Also, if you like my work, why not subscribe to my blog via email.
