Under the Tree ~ Tag a Bag or a Box!

Hi Stampers! It's Heidi from Stuck on Stampin' and I am SUPER excited to share with you some fun tags I created using the Under the Tree Tag a Bag Accessory Kit from the 2014 Holiday Catalog. 

The pieces for this kit come in a package like this...

And here it is all out of the package and with the tags punched apart. 

The coordinating colors for this kit are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crumb Cake, Pistachio Pudding, and Early Espresso. It comes with 10 large base tags, 10 builder tags, 10 mini clothespins, 1 spool of baker's twine, Dimensionals, and 5 self-adhesive strips.

I wanted to share with you the many ways you can tag a bag or a box. Stampin Up! sells some really cute packaging products, so I have taken a few of those and added a tag to them. I have used the packaging you see below, but there are many more to choose from and you can find them all HERE (including prices and how many come in a package).

Here is the complete ensemble I created using the Under the Tree Accessory Kit, some of the above packaging, as well as various stamps and punches. 
I wanted to take a picture of each of these up close so you can get a better look. For each picture, I will let you know some of the products I used in addition to the Under the Tree Accessory Kit. You will see that most of the projects use the Baker's Twine that is included with the kit, as well as the self-adhesive strips and mini clothespins. I just added all the other stuff for fun flair!

These three tags below I made simple on purpose. I wanted to show you that you don't always have to use the builder tags on top of the base tags. This means your tags can stretch you further! Just tie some twine in the corner or put a Dimnensional on the back and stick it onto the top of a present.

 These next two tags are just "add ons". I realized I had two mini clothespins left, so I decided to just create a couple of my own base tags using the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch.
