Gift Tag Using the Two Tags Die

Each month the Big Shot class focuses on different dies and embossing folders.  This month one of the featured dies is the Two Tags Die. This die cuts 2 different shapes and we'll be using both shapes (for different projects). Find out more details about the class HERE.

This die scores as well as cuts:
  • Notice the blue line in the image of the die. The blue line is a fold line that gets impressed or scored into the paper.  Wow, does that ever make folding easy!
  • The solid lines indicate the location of the cutting blades. Notice the tag on the left, it cuts a hole for a ribbon AND it cuts a slit for holding up the flap.
  • The dotted line represents decorative
    perforations that are also cut into the tag.
Class participants made projects using both of the shapes. Using the shape on the left we made a gift tag. The scored line in the middle made it easy to fold up with a message on the inside and the slit gave a convenient way to close the tag.

Do you make gift tags for your holiday gifts?  If you're like me you like to make them, but time is an issue, at least for me it is. So I love the fact that you can whip up 20 or 30 of these little tags in no time.  And they're small, so you hardly use any paper at all.

Cut multiple layers of Cardstock too. Not only are these tags quick and easy to make but the die will cut 5 pieces of cardstock at a time.  There's a real time saver! 
Feel free to contact me with any stamping related questions.
Happy Stamping
