Holiday Gift Tags Samples

Holiday Gift Tags Samples

The Christmas cards are in the mail. The gifts are purchased. Wrapping is underway. (OK, maybe in a perfect world!) The last thing on the list are , handmade gift tags. These can be very simple or have a lot of components. Whatever style or design you need, know that Stampin’ Up! products can help you get the job done.

In today’s post, I share just a few of the handmade holiday tags I created with a variety of Stampin’ Up! stamps, ink, dies, and embellishments. With 50 colors in our palette, you’ll be able to match the tags to your gift wrap or holiday gift bag.

Holiday Gift Tags Samples

Top Left: This tag has a Very Vanilla card stock base (I used thick card stock to provide a sturdy base.) It uses the Christmas Lights Bundle with gold heat embossing. Just a note: The Christmas Lights Bundle ($45.75) is retiring from Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.

Top Right: With a Kraft card stock base, this tag features the Tailor Made Tags Dies, the Peaceful Deer stamp set, and coordinating Deer Builder Punch. Find all of these in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog.

Bottom Left: This tag highlights Stampin’ Up!’s Real Red & White Glimmer Paper and the star die cut from the Twinkling Lights Dies. (Save $2.80 on the dies. These retire January 4, 2023). A white, heat embossed sentiment (Peaceful Deer stamp set) with Pearls adds just a little extra.

Bottom Right: The Layering Circles Dies provide the base for this card. I also embossed the circle with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. Red Rhinestones add a little glitz.(Sadly, the snowflake has sold out. But feel free to substitute snowflakes from other sets.)

Be sure to watch the video below to see how I make a couple of these cards and show some other tag samples. Please reach out if you have questions about products or techniques. I’m happy to help!



Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you’re inspired to create some of the handmade tags to adorn your holiday gifts this year.

Peekaboo Treat Bags for the Fourth

Peekaboo Treat Bags for the Fourth

I love treat bags! So, my project showcases one of Stampin’ Up!’s Peekaboo Treat Bags. These bags come in packages of 10 for $6. Find them on page 140 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. You receive five white and five Kraft bags. The little see-through window makes it super fun to add themed treats. I filled mine with red, white, and blue taffy.

I had to be a little creative when putting these bags together. Here’s a list of what I used:

  • Black and White Designs 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (available in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Begin ordering from it July 1). I used the Blending Brushes to apply Night of Navy and Real Red ink to the DSP pieces.
  • Stars punched with the Starlit Punch (Annual Catalog) from the Real Red  & White 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper (July-December 2022 Mini Catalog).
  • Sentiment from Peaceful Deer (Annual Catalog)
  • Double Oval Punch (Annual Catalog)
  • Real Red 3/8″ Ruffled Real Red Ribbon

These bags are super fun and super versatile. There are lots of ways to decorate. Fill them with everything from treats to gift cards.

Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder

Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder

How many days until Christmas? I’m not counting yet! But I do know I give a lot of gift cards. That’s where gift card holders come in handy.

Today’s project features a gift card holder that doubles as a greeting card. It fits in one of Stampin’ Up!’s regular envelopes. And it is so easy to make.

Here are the measurements beginning from the top down for the Peaceful Place Gift Card Holder:

  • Basic White: 1/2 inch x 3 (sentiment)
  • Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper: 4 1/4 x 2 3/4
  • Silver Foil 12 x 12 Specialty Paper: 4 1/2 x 3
  • White Base: 7 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inch
  • Black Back: 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
  • DSP for inside piece: 1 x 4 3/4

The holder also uses the Evergreen Border Punch found in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set offered in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog,

I made a few other samples that fit well for other occasions.
