Today I have a fun project using Totally Tags Holiday that will help wrap up all your gifting needs! I created an adorable set of gift tags and decorated a little tin to house them all.

Totally Tags Holiday is illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line and is a full sized set on a sturdy colour storage panel. There are nine tags for just $21.95.  There is also a set of coordinating dies, Totally Tags Taylored Die Set, to make cutting out these tags a snap! All TE stamps are made from top-quality deeply etched rubber in a cute shade of pink and come on EZ Mount already trimmed and ready to use with your acrylic blocks.

I wanted my tags to be a little bigger than the size of the stamps so I used the Frame It Up 1 die as the base. The tags are cute on their own, but this adds just a little more oomph for larger packages.

All the papers and some of the ribbons are from the 12 Days Project PantryWhen you want to bake up a yummy dessert you head to your pantry for the ingredients.  When you want to create a sweet papercrafting project, you can head to our Project Pantry for all the coordinating elements.  We've found that some of the best cake and cookie recipes are the ones based around a basic batter or dough recipe with lots of options to spice it up according to your tastes.  Taylored Expressions is offering our Basic Recipe Kit along with optional Spice It Up Ingredients that you can pick and choose from to build the kit just the way you want it.


The 12 Days Project Pantry Basic Recipe Kit is $11.95 and includes:
My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas 6x6 pad
12 sheets of 8.5" x 11" cardstock in coordinating colors
6 yards of ribbon (2 yards each of 3 different styles)

Optional Spice it Up Ingredients (choose any or all) are:
  • Christmas Button Mix
  • Doodlebug Holiday Brads
  • Rockin' Pink Sparkly Fluff
  • Rhinestones (Red, Split Pea, Island Lagoon)
  • Coordinating Copic Markers
  • Additional Cardstock Pack
  • Additional Ribbon Bundle


For the tin I simply created a belly band. The window in the lid allows the tags to show through so the tin really doesn't need a lot of embellishment. I used the fun Trim the Tree Taylored Die Set to create the layered tree.

Here are the dies I used:

Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen created.


Thanks for stopping by!
