CASual Fridays #118 Gift Tags & Bags

It has been a while since I played along with the CASual Friday Challenge, but given the current challenge is to make a gift tag & bag and Girl Friday Kelly Griglione posting the coolest tag idea a few days ago, I couldn't resist playing around a little this morning.



CFC118: Create a CAS gift or treat bag, that also includes a tag.
You have 2 weeks! Challenge ends at noon on October 30th.



Instead of selectively cutting alphabet dies to make a name tag as Kelly did, I used an MFT word die. I wanted to cut as close to the words as possible, so there was a little selective die cutting, but it was fast and easy.




Love the way this tag sits on the pillow box and shows off the raised letters beautifully!




Just like I don't like leaving my buttons naked, I like all the bits & pieces of my letters to be in the right spots. The MFT sentiment is heat embossed on vellum to show up a little bolder on this vibrant paper.




Probably 85% of my daughter's gifts involve gift cards and this little transparent pillow box is the perfect wrapping. It is embossed to add a little interest and texture and the tag is tied on with a few coordinating pieces of twine.



Thanks again for such a clever idea Kelly!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
