Tattered Angels Makes Gift Giving FUN!

PSA: I huge thank you to Louise Nelson for stepping up and taking my 10/10/2012 spot for me while traveling home for a family funeral…hugs and kisses Louise!

It looks like fall is starting to appear…the leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the colors of nature are changing. This time also is a reminder that we have several gift giving occasions just around the corner. I would like to share with you 3 different projects that work well when you are gifting money or a gift card. When I know that is the type of gift I’m giving then I want to make a fancy presentation and only Tattered Angels is up to the job for glitter and glimmer.


I have several boxes of mop tags, left over scraps of paper, left over embellishments…actually it’s my junk drawer that I keep just for this type of project! These type of gifts are also stash busters…all those fun little embellishments that end up just sitting, staring at you, daring you to do something with them!


I love the new sizes of manila tags that are available from Ranger and this project was created on the new #12 size {5-1/8″ x 10-1/2″}. Using scraps from my scrap box of embossed 7 Dots paper, May Arts lace trim, quatrefoil shapes cut from Spellbinders Labels #24 . Prima flowers, Tim Holtz Ideaology & 7Gypsies metal embellishments in no time I put together this rather lovely tag. To pull together all the different colors on my scrap pieces they all received a heavy misting of Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  On the back I glued a small manila envelope from Maya Roads that I’ve had for several years in which I will add the gift card..


How about another tag created from your standard size manila shipping tag, left over papers and embellishments and a quote from Balzer Designs Stencil MINI-POPPIES misted with Tattered Angels Marmalade Glimmer Mist. Wrapping the tag with Canvas Corp twine gives it a finished look along with a gift envelope on the back attached with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Another quick and easy gift tag to present as a gift.


How about a simple frame made from a manila tag for favorite photo of the gift recipient. Using the NEW size #12 {5-1/8”x10-1/2”} manila shipping tags from Ranger Inkssentials and an Instagram photo {4”x4”} in no time you can put together a cute, inexpensive mini frame with your gift enclosed using one of the fabulous mini envelopes found in so many different paper lines. With left over Pink Paislee wood letters arrow misted with Tattered Angels Boogie Board Chalkboard, Mallard Glimmer Mist and an overcoat of Guilded Gold Glimmer Mist, some Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue I have a gift ready to go! Because I used one of my Mop Tags {because I hate to waste any of the Tattered Angels goodness} I can’t give a color description but I did use a heavy misting of Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist as an over coating.

Thanks for stopping by…hope this gives you some ideas of how to quickly create a great gift package!
