Crate Paper – Willow Lane Gift Tags

Hello, CP friends! Today I’m sharing a set of tags created with the gorgeous Willow Lane collection by Maggie Holmes. Saying I adore this collection is an understatement; the colors, patterns, and unique embellishments are just perfect and suitable for any paper crafting project.

One of my passions is gift wrapping and pretty packaging. I think there is something extra special in adding a personalized touch to your gifts. Today I’m bringing you three gift tags, and I’m also going to share the finished wrapped presents using the new Gift Wrap Book that comes with the collection.

One thing these tags have in common is lots of layers. I started by choosing a background patterned paper, on which I then adhered several other tags and embellishments. The specialty vellum paper with its gold foiling details worked perfectly to bring in some sparkle and soften the overall look of the tags, also adding a more feminine touch.

Don’t you just love those cute little thread bows? I would use them on everything! Same with the gorgeous butterflies from the Flutter patterned paper.

Here I stitched them together to bring in dimension and texture, and arranged them around a sentiment I fussy-cut from the cut-apart sheet.

The third tag was inspired by the pockets that come in the Journaling Ephemera pack. I cut patterned paper to size, created a scalloped edge, and machine-stitched it to the bottom tag to create a pocket, which I then filled with a couple of die-cuts. I also used the Rub-ons to complete my sentiment, and finished it with the lovely sequined flower.

Now onto the finished wrapped boxes. The paper in the Gift Wrap Book is thick and durable, and it comes in gorgeous patterns and colors. All I had to do was choose a ribbon that coordinated with the tags.
