I am looking forward to being back on Hochanda on the 9th November and bringing you some of your festive favourites!

I will be bringing you a variety of dies from Bigz to Thinlits.

Today I want to share a quick tutorial with you, looking at how to create a gift tag and makes those festive gifts a wow factor.


  • Sizzix Bigz Die – Reindeer
  • Sizzix Framelits Die Set – Tags
  • Sizzix Thinlits Die Set – Holiday Words
  • Cardstock
  • Patterned Paper
  • Distress Ink – Walnut Stain
  • Mica Spray – Bronze
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Twine


Step 1

Die cut 2 tags and layer together to make it firm.

Step 2
Die cut the reindeer and add Distress Ink.  Spritz with the Mica Spray and heat dry.
Step 3
Trim strips of card and die cut the words, distress with Distress Ink.
Step 4 
Distress the edge of the tags and adhere the Reindeer using 3D foam pads.  Back the letters onto gold card and adhere to the tag.  Add the pipe cleaner.
Step 5
Thread twine through the top and tie the twine in a knot.

Hope you like this little project.  It will certainly add detail to any gift!

For more festive  inspiration join me on 9th November at 10am, 1pm & 5pm.

Until then…
