Gift Tag - Take II

Well, the response to my tag /gift card was positive so I went ahead and created a sketch with all of the dimensions which you can find at the bottom of this post. Yes, I'm going to make you scroll past the eye candy first. Speaking of candy this time the gift tag is not holding a gift card but instead chocolate... oh yummy Ghirardelli milk chocolate. Which I only ate one piece of during the making of this project. Shocking I know.

Mmm mmm... that little square of chocolate fits inside the holder perfectly. To hold it in place I just used a bit of SNAIL (aka Tombow) adhesive on the back of the chocolate package (same method I used for the gift card). For this gift tag holder I did change the placement of the Velcro dot closure. Instead of putting it in the middle of the flap I cut it in half and added a half to each side. This seemed to hold the flap in place a bit better.

I stamped a flower from the Bloomin' Beautiful set on Georgia Pacific white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. For anyone who loves this set but has procrastinated buying it... well the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog is only available until the end of this month and then this set goes bye-bye. It could (and I stress could) show up in a future catalog but no guarantees. I'll be sad to see this mini catalog end but I can't wait to see what they come up with next. :)
