Today’s Post is not a card! Surprise! Today I am sharing two Birthday tags I made from the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set. Meet Mr. Lion and Mr. Koala…
These are so easy to make because the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set has a matching die set called Bonanza Dies that has a tag die. It just takes a few seconds with a Big Shot (or other die cutting machine) to crank out a few tags. The tag has some nice decorative stitching around the outside and conveniently even makes the hole at the top for attaching ribbon. The tags measure approximately 3 3/4” x 2 1/8” and are the perfect size to put on presents, gift bags, even party treat bags.
For the first tag, I decided to use one of the Rectangle Stitched dies to make a “hole” in the center. I then die cut another tag using the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper
I adhered the two tags together, so I have a nice peek-a-boo of the paper and because this paper is double-sided (meaning there is another design on the backside) your tag is decorated on the backside too!
I then stamped a Koala on my Whisper White Circle, gave him a Party Hat to wear, backed it with a Starburst Circle and added a little sentiment on the bottom. All that was left was to tie a piece of ribbon through the top.
For the second tag….not wanting to waste my paper, I layered the piece that I cut out of the middle of the first tag and adhered it to the middle of my second tag. This time I stamped this cute little lion! I chose to stamp his mane and tail out of a darker color to give a little contrast and then used the coordinating die to cut those out.
If you’d like to make these cute tags, this is what you will need:
- Bonanza Buddies Bundle (Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set & Bonanza Dies)
