Elegant Idea for Holiday Gifting

Holiday Gift Embellishment Idea

Having Teresa Collins around has given me so much enthusiasm. I am so ready to get my holiday preparation into full gear. I love Teresa Collin’s elegant style and long to have gifts to give that others will say “what decorator wrapped her gifts?” So my adventure begins!

I decided to make a metallic gift tag for my gifts. Now this is not a little out of the light tag , NO.. I am talking about a beautiful package. I want to have time stop when they see their gifts. Well it is my fantasy..LOL.

So I took the soda can and cut it into a flat sheet. If you do this be very careful as the metal edges are very sharp. I then took my stack of soda can sheets and placed them under several heavy books.  I left them until they didn’t curl much, The next step was to cut my blank out . I took  one of my Spellbinders dies and cut the tag shape that I love. I love my eBosser it makes all of my projects so much fun.  My next step was using the Teresa Collins Cabbage rose embossing folder and placed my tag in it. I love the clean emboss that I get from my eBosser. I next took some inks and “antiqued” my tag.  I  also placed some ribbons of organza I can’t wait to put my gifts into the waiting hands of my family!


The tag is backed with craft foam. This offers a great place for a sentiment or greeting. I love the look and hope that you will share your great ideas for gift box embellishments in the comment sections below..

Thank you for viewing my Holiday Tag!

See you next week,
