Tag tied

We create such beautiful tags for our lovely gifts don’t we? Lovely coordinated products used together to create the most wonderful little items!

However I find the ribbon, which is looped and has two open-ended threads at the top of the tag, can create some confusion. I find myself quite often being asked “how do I tie or attach my tags onto my gifts”.

With the ribbon already tied at the top and having two open threads, they can simply be tied together around the ribbon that adorns the pressie or tied to the handles of the gift bag I have just decorated.

But I personally like the ribbon at the top of my tag to act more as decoration rather than be functional. So this is how I attach them….


I thread more ribbon/cording through the ribbon on the tag and then tie that onto my pressie. That way my decorative ribbon is still in place and the overall look of my design is maintained.

Here check this tag out….


Oh and … thank you Ferrero this Christmas for those Grande’s! Don’t they make excellent pressent toppers?!

Hope this helps with your tag tying this festive season!

Until next time… Stamp creatively!


Washi Tape wonder

I was so glad to see the wonderful designs and colour combinations of washi tapes in this new catalogue. This was partly because I was so attached to some of the ones in the last catalogue, I just wasn’t sure how I was going to say goodbye to those.

Lucky for me, I found some new favs pretty quickly. Here they are….


My two favs at the minute are Everyday Chic – they are the Black and white ones up the back there (138385) and in front are the 2014-16 InColour range (138382). I also have my eye on the Bohemian and Sweet Li’l Things collections… Hmmm stay tuned for those. To see all the collections – click here.

I just love how quick and simple they are to use. They add a splash of colour quickly and the designs are so adaptable. I made a bunch of Thank you cards recently so I used my new favourite washi tapes to make this a speedy process. I also used an old design to try out my new tapes.[Back track down memory lane.]


This design is just so versatile, here I used it for a couple of other occasions that followed my Thank you card fest day.


Until next time… Stamp creatively
