Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a fun treat to celebrate the end of not only 2019, but an entire decade! Snacks seem to be the way to my heart, so coming up with creative ways to make the packaging a little more heartfelt is always on my mind. Check out how I used the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill and a few other tools to make a quick tag!
I began by typing out my wording in my digital die cutting machine software program. I adjusted the size of the text to fit my project and sent it to my machine. Keep in mind that you want to get your Foil Quill tool heating up for 5-10 minutes before you send your project to your machine. I find that if I plug it in as I sit down to work, that is plenty of time.
One more tip, make sure your foil is completely flat and secured to your cardstock.
Once the wording is foiled on your cardstock, use the We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board to create your tag shape. I always create a test tag first from left-over paper, to see if I like the angle of the edges.
The Tag Punch Board can also punch the hole at the top of the tag. The lines on the board make it easy to get in centered. Which is good for me, I have centering issues. I tend to put everything too far to the left!
Wrap ribbon around the top of the sealed treat bag and put both ends through the opening at the top of the tag. Tie a bow and adjust as necessary.
Please note my bag was secured closed with a twist-tie first.
Using the small star Clear Cut Punch, I punched a few stars from glitter paper and added them to the center of my bow.
Upon looking at my ribbon, I realized that the ends did not look finished. To add some curl to my wired ribbon, I grabbed one of my stylus tools and wrapped the ribbon around the ends. Such a fun look!
What kind of treats and favors do you make for New Years? Happy New Years to everyone!
