Christmas Crackers and Gift Bags & Two New Stamp Sets From Stampin’ Up!

I’ve been busy wrapping gifts this week and I used a few Stampin’ Up! items for some quick gift wrap.  I made Christmas Crackers with the Envelope Punch Board and I put some small items under the tree using some of the Tag a Bag Gift Bags.  I created a quick tutorial for the Christmas Crackers and you can see that if you click here.

For the gift bags, I simply placed the small gift items inside the Tag a Bag Gift Bags and sealed them with a strip of Season of Style of Style Designer Washi Tape.

I’d made the ornament tags for a little tree that I’d put up at a craft fair and I simply stamped the To/From sentiment from the Tags 4 You stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) on Whisper White card stock, punched them out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and adhered them to the back of the ornaments.

I made one set of ornament tags with the Best of Christmas stamp set and I used the Circles #2 Originals Die, the Circles Collection Framelits Dies, the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies and the Christmas Ornament Punch to create them.  The background die cuts are Red Glimmer Paper, the layered circles are Garden Green card stock and I adhered a little piece of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to hang the ornaments.

I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (wood mount and clear mount), the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies, the Circles Collection Framelits Dies and the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies to create the blue ornaments.  The card stock layers are Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo and the snowflake die cuts are Silver Glimmer Paper.

To see my tutorial for creating the Christmas Crackers, click here.  I used the Envelope Punch Board, some Season of Style DSP and the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags Bundle to create the crackers.

I tied one set of crackers closed with Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon and the other closed with Old Olive 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.  The all of the little tags are from the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags Book (that I purchased as a bundle with the matching stamp set).
