Designer's Tip: When embossing on foil tags, press the stamp lightly or it might slip on the slick surface.



  1. Use the surface of the Maroon ink pad to color the binding and edges of the binder. Cut the bottom 1 3/4" from the lace border paper and glue to the bottom from of the binder. Cover the remaining portion of the binder front and the entire back with mauve doily paper.
  2. Glue a 1/8" wide green grosgrain ribbon across the seam between the 2 papers on the front. Evenly space 3 white flowers across the ribbon border.
  3. Trace the 2 1/4" x 3" Vintage Sign label onto the ivory portion of the corner embellished paper. Stamp with a greeting and emboss with Vintage Olive Glitter. Stamp tiny snowflakes and emboss with Vintage Plum. Ink the edges of the label black and mat with a 3 1/2"x 4 3/4" bracket label cut from striped lace paper and ink the edges. Glue above the border. Glue blue grosgrain bows to the top and bottom of the small label.
  4. Inside: Label dividers with events, decoration and food ideas and a gift list. Cover each divider with patterned paper and re-punch holes. Cover pocket flap with paper. Print "Gift Tags" onto mauve doily paper and cut into a 1 1/4" wide strip. Mat the long edges with white cardstock and glue across the flap. Trim the paper even with the flap sides
  5. Gift Tags: Stamp tags with greeting and emboss with Tinsel Embossing Glitters. Personalize tags with Friends & Family Dazzles™ and top with a bow. Store tags in the envelope.
