I have two projects to share with you today. For the first project, a gift bag and gift card set card, I have included directions to show you how to create a frame using the Punch templates. For the second project, holiday treats gift set, I will share more details with you soon.
I’m thrilled to share the P5-005 Holiday Joy and P3-013 Scalloped Square Presto punch templates with you.
Here is the gift bag and gift card set.
To create the ornament for both the bag and gift card, simply place the ornament from the punch template P5-005 Holiday Joy with the punching edge down onto the WorldWin Gold Mirror Cast Hi Gloss card stock.
Leaving your punch template intact with the card stock inside, place cutting edge down in embossing booklet. Insert into the Presto Punch machine, press the down button until the motor stops, then the up button until the booklet can be removed from the machine. I have created a beautiful embossed image.
Here is a close up of the finished punched/embossed ornament.
To create the frame around the gift tag, simply place both punch templates on top of paper, punching edge down in the cutting booklet. Punch and emboss as above.
You can easily create frames with Presto Punch templates as well.
To create the white center where I stamped the WaltzingMouse sentiment, I used the P3-013 Scalloped Square #2 punch template and WorldWin white card stock.
I punched/embossed a P3-013 Scalloped Square #3 from the gold card stock. I placed the frame and white stamped piece on the back side if it, so that both sides of this tag were finished and attractive.
To create the scalloped edge border along the red patterned paper, simply punch/emboss several more of the gold scalloped squares.
I then cut them in half and lined them up behind the Robin's Nest Canada Stripe Pattern Paper.
For a yummy treat to put inside the gift bag, I made a holiday treats gift set. I wrapped more of the patterned paper around a candy bar. I created another Scalloped Square tag and adorned it with the Poinsettia from the P5-005 Holiday Joy set. I also filled a cello bag full of candy cane Hershey's kisses
To create the Candy Cane tag, I used Spellbinders™ Red Premium Craft Foil. I punched/embossed, then sanded the foil to show the silver underneath.
For that little extra something on the tag, I added 3 Kaiser Craft gems for the holly berries.
Here is the whole ensemble together, this would make for a fabulous teacher or hostess gift at Christmas time.
