A cute and quick gift with a floppy bow tie!

The best part? This gift can be made in about 10 minutes!

Easy peasey!

You have enough time for that!!

Easy & Quick Gift for Anyone

Here are all the measurements, supplies and steps to make it at home today.

Cuttin’ It Up!

  • Thick Basic White cardstock – larger scrap (to fit your tag- mine is from the Designer Tags Dies (159165) and is 1 3/4″ x 2 1/2″), smaller scrap to stamp on
  • Sweetest Christmas DSP – cut two candy canes
  • Real Red cardstock – scraps
  • Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine- about 32″
Easy and Quick Gift for Anyone
Candy canes you can cut out – means quick and easy gift making!

Let’s Make It!

1. Stamp greeting in Garden Green ink onto scrap of Basic White.

2. Cut out greeting with smallest scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies and your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Cut two circles with your Layering Circles dies from Real Red. One is 1 5/8″ diameter, the smaller is 1 3/8″ diameter.

3. Crop one Thick Basic White tag with the Designer Tags Dies.

4. Add glue to the back of the larger Real Red circle and glue onto the middle of the tag die cut. Glue the scalloped circle to the smaller Real Red circle and set aside,

5. Cut out two candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas DSP. Add dimensionals to the back and adhere so they criss cross over the tag. Glue the greeting to the middle. Add three green sequins as desired.

6. Fill the bag with candies, then tie tag around the bag with the Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine (see the video for how to make a floppy bow).

How cute is that?

I had made another of these exact designs earlier this fall. This time I used Linen Thread and a bit longer length of thread to make 3 large and floppy bows with 6 loops!

Try other twine for other looks – make as many bows as you like!
