Directions

  • Using the Shape Cutter and the Tags-1 Template cut a Jumbo tag shape out of green cardstock and one out of ivory cardstock.

  • Using the Shape Cutter and the Tags-1 Template cut the smallest circle out of ivory cardstock; adhere the circle to the center top of the tag. Using the hand held 1/4" circle punch and punch a hole out of the center of the ivory circle.

  • Cut a Jumbo tag out of ivory cardstock. Cut 1” off the bottom of the tag. Set top part of tag aside.

  • Position the 1” strip between the Mini Shape Boss Christmas stencils and secure in place. Emboss holly leaves and berries onto the border.

  • Turn stencils over and color embossed area with ink. Allow ink time to dry or dry it with a heat gun. Once the ink is dry adhere the strip to the bottom of the tag.

  • To make the candy cane heart position the top part of the ivory tag between the Mini Shape Boss Christmas stencils and secure in place. NOTE: Remember that you are making a heart shape so be sure to adjust your placement to allow for that.

  • Emboss one candy cane; flip the ivory tag over and position it between the stencils so that it creates the heart. Secure in place then turn both stencils over and emboss the candy cane again.

  • Turn both stencils over again and color with red ink. Remove the tag; wash the stencils and pat dry with a paper towel.

  • Position the stencil over the uncolored candy cane and color.

  • Allow ink to dry while you clean and put away the stencils.

  • When the heart is dry trim around the outside leaving a 1/8” border. Adhere heart to the center of the tag.
