Tagged with Love Trio

For today’s group project, the Clear and Simple Stamps design team is showing off sets of tags. I used the new Mini Label Tags dies to dress up three different sweet treats—just in time for Valentine’s Day! All three tags are much the same design, but each is used on a different type of candy gift.

The first tag is found on a mini bag that I filled with a single wrapped Ghirardelli chocolate square. The grid patterned paper bag is stamped with one of the background bars from the Hearts Plus set, then the top is folded down and topped with a red Mini Label Tags die cut, then machine stitched shut. I stamped the “sweet treat” sentiment from the Taglines stamp set on the tag, then added a single heart, covered with glitter, using foam tape.

The next tag is used on a trio of Smarties candy rolls. I stamped a strip of red cardstock with another one of the background bars from the Hearts Plus set, then added die cut white scalloped strips along the edges of the strip. The strip is used to hold the three rolls of Smarties together. I wrapped some black baker’s twine around the strip and used the twine to secure the tag to the bundle.

And, finally, this tag is on a clear tube filled with Hershey’s Kisses. I added a heart stamped red circle to the tube’s top and wrapped it with a red cardstock strip. The Mini Label Tags die cut on this one is stamped with the “smooches” sentiment. I used a red baker’s twine bow to attach it to the tube.

Don’t miss the tags created by the rest of the CSS design team. Here’s where to find them:
