Custom Box and Ornament Gift Tag

Today I'm sharing a fun design and directions to make a cute little box and matching gift tags.

I stated with making my own design paper. I sprayed color onto two sheets of Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Fireworks Sprays summer sky, danabe blue, grape jelly. The sparkle is so pretty!

After it dried completely, I stamped images from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Ornate Snowflakes with Delicata Silver Shimmer Ink Pad.

For directions on how I made the gift box using The Ultimate Tool, see my post here. There are several size gift boxes you can make with the tool. I trimmed off a portion to fit the gift. I also scored in horizontal direction to give some interest. 

I adhered the sides with Red Liner Tape. The lids were made with Shimmering Cardstock sky blue.

To make the ornament, I cut eight circles with the 1,7" circle using Die'sire Essentials Dies - CirclesI folded each circle in half with the right side inside, scored it with the Double Ended Scoring and Embossing Tool that came with The Ultimate Craft Tool, and edged them with a silver metallic leaf pen. 

I adhered them together - two circles at a time by placing Collall All Purpose Glue the un-stamped side. I did this for 4 circles each to create two "halves." I put a clothes pin on each half to hold them in place. After they dried,  in the center of one half, I laid down a line of glue and positioned a piece of twine with a little snowflake embellishment I found in my stash, and then glued the two halves together make the round ornament.  I used a couple clothes pins to hold them together until it dried.

I cut a matching scalloped tag with Die'sire Essentials Scalloped squares and added both tags to the top lid along with a perfect bow I made with The Ultimate Tool

Shout out: My ornament gift tag was inspired by this video from Dina.
