I'm very excited to introduce Sandy from Sandy's Space! She's always got great paper crafts and today's tutorial doesn't disappoint! Go check her blog out!

Hi, this is Sandy Ang from sunny, little Singapore. I’m a crafter who loves card-making, paper construction and creating altered objects. I enjoy sharing my design idea and tips through projects tutorials. You can find more of my work and tutorials on my blog.
Naughty or Nice
Today I'm sharing a tutorial for gift tag and matching bag holder
To make the Gift Tag :
  1. I inked up my Inkadinkado Christmas stamps in Black
  2. Randomly stamped on a piece of 2.5"x3" paper
  3. Inked up again in Bamboo, stamped and cut out 2 smaller pieces
  4. Assembled the smaller pieces on top and glued on two charms
  5. Glued onto a tag and tied on some ribbons
To make the Bag Holder :
  1. Cut out this template from a 5.5"x 3.5" paper
  2. Each smaller tab is 0.25" wide - apply glue on 2 tabs indicated
  3. Assemble into a holder with holes in the front and back for the handle
  4. Use brads to secure a 0.5"x4" handle to the bag
  5. Use jump rings to attach charms to a chain and secure around the handle
And there you have it a completed gift tag sitting pretty in it's bag holder.
Merry Christmas !!
