Stampin’ Up! Tag Topper Punches

Greetings Crafters!

Today is another snow day for the kids in the Wake County, NC area.  Wahoo!:)  This gives me a chance to be at home and show off the two new tag topper punches that are in the 2014 Spring Occasions Catalog:  the Angled Tag Topper Punch (#133323, $22.95) and the  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (#133324, $22.95).  Click the image below to see the video.

Both of these punches are the new style punches that lock closed and store flat.  They are quite beefy!

Place a piece of 2″ wide cardstock all the way inside the punch (until you feel it hit the top) and press down to create a beautiful top for a tag or bookmark.  It even cuts out the hole for  you so you can run a piece of ribbon or baker’s twine through it.

The nice thing about these punches is the versatility.  By just varying the length of the cardstock or Designer Series Paper, you can create many different projects such as a gift tag, book mark or treat holder.

1). Gift Tag: Cut a piece that is 5″ long and 2″ wide.  Stamp, embellish and add to a package or gift bag.

Scalloped Tag Topper TagsTrick of the Trade:  Half way punch out the butterfly (Elegant Butterfly Punch #127526, $15.95) to get the effect that it is flying off of the page (below, left).  Layer with small butterfly from the Bitty Butterfly Punch (#129406, $15.95) and add an embellishment of your choice.  (Glimmer Brad shown)

Half Punched Butterfly2). Book Mark:  Cut a piece that is 6″ or 7″ long and 2″ wide.  Stamp, add ribbon and slip into a book for a friend.

Below I used Geometrical Stamp Set (Wood #133158, $29.95 or Clear #133161, $21.95) with the Triangle Punch (#133375, $15.95) and Essentials Wooden Elements (#132258, $4.95 for 32 pieces).  Using the Fringe Scissors (#133325, $9.95), I added some more texture at the bottom.

Book Marks

3). Treat Holder:  Cut a piece that is 7.25″.  Score at 3.25″ and 3.75″.  Place candy inside.  Tie with ribbon.

Below, I paired Coastal Cabana cardstock and Strawberry Slush ink and ribbon with the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set of 6 (Wood #133182, $25.95 or Clear #133185,$18.95 ) along with Starburst Framelit Dies (#132967, $26.95 for a set of 5).

You can SAVE 15% if you purchase the stamp set and framelits together in the bundle Wood#134817, $44.95 or Clear #134818, $38.95)Tag Topper Treat Holder-side

I hope these ideas give you some ways to use the tag topper punches.  It is the simplicity of these projects that make them so wonderful!

Take Care,

Jennifer
