Gift Tags with a Twist

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs release!  Have you loved what you've seen so far!  Today's spotlight is a twist on a good old staple for paper crafting!  I think you're going to be pleased!   If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from Isha's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, visit Laura's blog.

How many times do you need a tag for a gift or even a fun tag for a card?  I know I seem to need one A LOT!  Well, Laura has really created a fun new set of tag dies with a twist!  There are two new styles of die tags available that fold.

Garden Bulbs Both 1.1

I needed a gift for some co-workers and I was really stretched on time.  In fact, I had their gifts for over a week, but wanted to include a handmade note to go along with them.  There was just no time.  Then, my Lil' Inker Designs package arrived. Voilà!  I pulled out the incredible new tag dies and was able to make these tags in no time at all!

Garden Bulbs Both One tag out

The circle embellishments were cut with the new Stitched Mats: Circles dies.  You can't really see the stitching detail on the felt in the photo, but it is there, adding a little extra fun to the embellishments!  I used double sided paper to cut the tags with and I really like how that looks!  It looks finished with one pass through the die cut machine!  The "thanks" sentiment is from the previously released Darling Diamonds set.  I found that one of the Stitched Mats: Rectangles fits perfectly inside the tags!  I decorated the tag with a sentiment from Rainbows & Clouds set and a scallop from the You're Invited stamp set and then tied them on to the garden stakes with solid twine from The Twinery.

Here's a look at the new products being highlighted today:
