Speed Tagging & Sweet As Sugar Treats With The Greetery

Good morning, friends! Welcome back for Day 4 of The Greetery's holiday countdown (all of the new products will be available at 10am on Friday, October 4th on The Greetery's website)! Today is all about packaging and dressing up your seasonal parcels. I love, love, love packaging and tags and all things gifty, so today's introductions are right up my alley! Let's get to it!

First up, I have a collection of tags to share with you. These tags were a snap to create, thanks to the ingenious design behind the Speed Tagging collection.

Betsy designed this collection to be a one stamp, one die cut, seven tags solution to making your holiday gift tags a snap. You seriously just stamp the rubber, cling mounted image once, line up the die with the dots on the pattern, and then die cut for a total of seven tags at a time.

I chose to stamp my tags in a few colors and make each tag double sided to give them a more polished overall look, but that was totally optional.

All of the tags are symmetrical which made making them double sided a breeze. I just stuck the "bad" sides together before tying each tag with crochet thread. I use fabric ribbon to wrap my gifts, so the crochet thread is a nice neutral that blends in fairly well when I'm tying my bows.

I used the new Speed Tagging Christmas Sentiments stamp set and die to give each tag a touch of holiday flair. I particularly love the foliage and bow, but the stars and some of the more generic greetings (like "A gift for you") would make perfect birthday options, too!

I love the variety of shapes and sizes you get with a single impression and die cut. And several of the tags also have embossed or pierced details that would make them interesting even if you chose not to stamp the patterns.

If you love gift packaging and tags as much as I do, this collection is an absolute must have!

My final project today is a charming gift topper I created with the new Candy Pops Circle Die. I couldn't help but see a giant lollipop when I looked at that die and I thought it would make an adorable gift topper/tag!

I used the Candy Pops die to cut a folded shape (simply die cut with the fold below the blade on your intended top edge) first. On the inside, I adhered a circle that I'd stenciled with the swirl (just die cut from a scrap and gently blend through the negative) and stamped with the "To:" and "From:" included in the Candy Pops Sentiments stamp set.

For the outside, I die cut the overall candy shape from white cardstock and trimmed off the top wrapper bit. I cut the circle from the inside and created a shaker filled with glitter and buffalo snow. The lollipop swirl on the inside of the shaker is also glittered for extra, seasonal sparkle.

I stamped the outer frame with a greeting from Candy Pops Sentiments before securing the shaker bits all together. Then, I embellished with a bright green bow and hot glued the whole tag/topper to a bamboo dowel to give it a realistic stick. I had a blast with this and I foresee several more lollipop toppers in my future!

Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope today's introductions have you daydreaming about your holiday packages. Make sure to pop in on these lovely ladies to see what other inspiration they have in store for you:

I also wanted to mention super quickly that I'm picking up my Festive Fridays series again starting tomorrow. If you joined me last year, you'll see even more seasonal packaging and tag ideas every week. If you didn't catch the series last year, I hope you'll pop in to see what creative packaging ideas I can come up with this time around. See you tomorrow!
