Fast & Simple Tropical Oasis Tag

Today’s project is a tag I made for the gifts I brought back from Mexico for my Candy Hearts team members. I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and the Tropical Oasis Trinkets along with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Every year, my husband and I join a few other couples for a midwinter tropical vacation. All the husbands met while speaking on a software conference series called No Fluff Just Stuff. They call themselves the Fluff Talkers, and the spouses call ourselves the Fluff Widows. This was the 11th year the couples have vacationed together on what we call the “Pasty Geeks” trip. This year we went to Mexico. It’s a great place to get vanilla, so that’s what we brought back as souvenirs.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 2″ x 3-1/2″
  • Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″

Cut using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch:

  • one end of the Real Red CS

Assembled the tag:

  • Whisper White CS glued onto one side of the tag
  • DSP glued onto the other side of the tag
  • trinket adhered onto the DSP using Mini Glue Dots
  • tag tied onto the bottle’s red elastic band using Linen Thread
  • NOTE: I folded the thread in half, pushed the loop end through the hole in the tag, ran the two ends through the loop, and pulled taut. Then I tied a knot in the two pieces of thread about 1/4″ or so above the tag. This leaves a bit of the thread for the tag to dangle when it’s tied to the bottle, instead of the tag being tied up against the bottle.

No Matter the Weather for APPT Blog Hop

APPT headerIt’s time for the March APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called No Matter the Weather and it’s designed to make 12 sweet weather themed cards. It also came with an extra stamp set called Spring Splash. Today we are sharing alternate projects made with this kit. I can’t wait to see what everyone on the hop has created!

I decided to make a card and an open top gift box for a friend. The current situation in the world makes almost all of us need a little boost. I want my friend to know I’m there for her…with a bottle of hand soap (you can barely see the top of the pump bottle amongst the tissue paper.)

  • first and last pages glued the same way inside the Poppy Parade CS cover, creating more pockets
  • tabs on CS inserts created by gluing 2 die cut crests together, with the insert between them, then the inserts stuck inside the pockets

Greatest Guy by Par Mini Pizza Box

Today’s project is sort of a stepped up version of yesterday’s note card. Along with die cuts, I’ve also used wooden Country Club Elements to decorate a Mini Pizza Box. 

Tip: The wooden golf clubs are not as long as they appear on this project. The wood is soft, so I used my Paper Snips to cut the clubs in half. At first, I did this just so I could cross them without worrying about the thickness. Then I moved the halves apart to make them look longer. The crest covered the gaps.

Cut using the Golf Club Dies:

  • one of the sentiments using the crest die

  • burnished the folds in the pizza box with a Bone Folder

  • wooden crest glued onto the golf club pieces, covering the gap in the clubs
