CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Terrific Tags

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Terrific Tags

If you came from Darlys Recker's Blog you are on the right track! Thank you for joining us on this Blog Hop with lots of ideas and tips for you while using this fabulous new Foil Paper. A Blog Hop is a 'circular' group of Blogs that you 'Hop' to (or click the link to) that will give you lots of tips, techniques and inspiration for the topic of the Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and enjoy the projects.

Here is my project for today:

 I used the Tag Thin Cuts and cut out two of the largest tag from Falling from you pattern paper.
The tags weren't long enough to go over the mini tic tacs I had to put inside so I created a little 'open box' for them to sit in and put a zip strip (the piece cut from the top of the paper, approx, 1/2") on the bottom and them added the tags:

Then I took some White Burlap Ribbon and with my scissors cut up one of the areas between two strand and then all the strands come apart (be sure to run your fingers down the strands to get rid of the excess fivers), and tie into a bow (add your mini tic tacs first - found at Dollar Tree near registers).

Then decorate as desired.

These make great little gifts for friends, co-workers, teachers or Sunday school classes. You could even put names on them for seating at Thanksgiving or a party. So much fun!

Hop on over to Belinda McLane's Blog to enjoy more great projects.

Here are the measurements:
For box:
2 X 5 Cardstock
Score (with long side butted up against trimmer edge):
1, 1.5, 3, 3.5

Score short side at:

Zip Strip cut at 5.25"

Cut Large tag from Basic Tags Thin Cuts (Z3344)

Cut the box tabs on the bottom edge of box, up to 1/2" score line (you are cutting only 1/2" between each score mark). You can miter the edges if you like.
See second photo above. Adhere back of box, large flap will completely cover small (1") flap. Adhere bottom flaps to complete box.

Place Zip strip around bottom edge of box, a small portion will stick out, just cut it off flush with box.

Place Mini Tic Tacs (found at Dollar Tree):

Then place a tag on each side of box, butted up to the top of zip strip.
Add ribbon and Enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by and until next time, Create it with Heart,
