Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop - Holiday Tags

Welcome to this months Remarkable Ink Big Blog Hop for November 2017! I am so glad you could join me today. This month our theme is Holiday Tags.You may be just starting here at my blog, Katrina's Kreative Heart, with me, Katrina Wolfe, or you may have come from the person before me in the list. Either way, if you get off track at any time, the full lineup is below and will help you move along from blog to blog so that you won't miss any of the amazing projects along the way. At the moment, you are visiting, Katrina Wolfe at Katrina's Kreative Heart.
For my tag project, I decided to use one of my favorite bundles from the Holiday catalog, Carols of Christmas. I just adore this bundle and find that I reach for it often and found once I got going on these cute tags, I couldn't stop so ended up with a total of 6 tags in no time at all. So, then, what's a girl to do with 6 tags laying around? Well, she makes a box to put them in of course! Again, quick and easy!

Tag Directions:

To create the tags, I cut Whisper White and Be Merry Christmas DSP 5.5" x 2" and adhered them together with Fast Fuse. I then punched the tops with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I stamped the deer from the Carols of Christmas in Soft Suede ink onto some scrap Whisper White cardstock and cut them out on the Big Shot with the coordinating die. I cut the single tree from the die set from scraps of Garden Green Cardstock and adhered both the tree and the deer to the bottom of the tags with mini dimensionals. For the sentiment and the To/From, I pulled out my Hang your Stocking stamp set. I stamped the Merry Christmas in Garden Green onto some scraps of Whisper White and punched them out with the Pretty Label punch and layered them onto a piece of Garden Green punched out with the 1.75" circle punch and popped them onto the tags with Stampin' Dimensionals. As a final touch, I added the Jute Twine to the top.

Box Directions:

To make the box, I started with a piece of Whisper White cut 7.5" x 4.5" for the bottom and scored 1" on all 4 sides. I snipped the end score lines up to the intersecting score lines on the 2 short ends, folded on all the score lines and added adhesive to the tabs and folded them in creating the bottom of the box. 
For the box top, I used a piece of Garden Green also cut 7.5" x 4.5", only I added a shim of approximately 5 Post-It notes to the edge of my score board and scored all 4 sides at 1". I snipped the up to the intersecting score lines on the short ends to create my tabs and I added Be Merry DSP to the top (5.25" x 2.25") and all 4 sides, (long sides cut .75" x 5.25"; short sides .75" x 2.25") and added adhesive to all 4 tabs with Fast Fuse and created my box top.
