It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….!

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and this month the Perfect Paper Crafting Team are teaming up with Stampendous and we are sharing lots of fun Christmas Projects. I’m using the super cute Gingerbread Baker Stamp die set along with the Sparkle PuffReal Red Opaque Embossing Powders.

I created some cute Gift bags that are perfect for all your sweet treats. I started out by die cutting the gingerbread men from some Baked Brown Sugar card stock and then added some Walnut Stain Distress ink around the edges to create some depth.

This set comes with a few dies and then some stamps you can use to decorate your cookies. I stamped the eyes and buttons using some Black ink and then I embossed the Rick Rack using the Sparkle Puff and Real Red embossing powders. I added some color to the face with some colored pencils and a VersaMarker to add the embossing powders to the buttons. Then using the Perfect Paper Crafting Ruler and Cutting Mat I created a tag for each cookie.

I added some additional Rick Rack and embossed that as well. Then I adhered the cookie with some foam tape. I stamped the sentiment on a little circle tag for the Red Tag and then directly onto the tag for the White one. I also added a red heart to the White tag using the die included in the set and the Perfect Airbrush.

I adhered each tag to some Kraft paper bags from the craft store and folded the tops over. Perfect for all your Holiday Treats! These tags could be attached to a Jar or box of goodies as well.
