Bold Snowflake Hand Soap with Gift Tag

Hey Stampers,

I have another gift idea for you today ! I used this for the hostess gift for my Stamp Club this month, but  it would be a great gift for the host of a Christmas Party, a co-worker, a neighbour or anyone special ! These awesome hand soaps are from Bath and Body Works, and usually go on sale for 6 for $15 or something like that, so it would be easy to stock up on them for gifts. You could also modify the size of the tag and use it as a tag for a wine bottle ! Well, here is my project !! What do you think ??


I cased this idea from Anna Keyes's You Tube channel, Little Bay Stampin'. Loved the idea so much I had to try one myself !! The tag itself is a piece of Baja Breeze card stock (I can't really remember the measurements as I just eyeballed where I wanted it to be on the bottle ... sorry !!) that I stamped with a snowflake from the Snowflake Soiree stamp set, also in Baja Breeze ink. I scored the cardstock near the top where I wanted the tag to hang down, and used my 1-1/4" Circle Punch to punch a hole for the soap pump to come up though. So easy !! I cut a small piece of the snowflake DSP from the Snow Festival pack, and layered it onto a piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock. Then it was time for embellishments !!

The "snowflake flower" uses the Bold Snowflake single stamp. I stamped the image in Not Quite Navy ink onto Baja breeze cardstock 3 times and punched them out with the Blossom Punch. I then crinkled them all up and attached them in layers with dimensionals. Then in the middle I added a small Boho Blossom punched out of the Silver Glimmer paper with one of the beautiful Vintage Faceted Buttons with some White Bakers Twine in a little bow on top. So Sweet !! its hard to see in the picture, but that bit of Silver Glimmer paper looks so nice through the Vintage button !! My little Happy Christmas is from the More Merry Messages stamp set, I stamped it in Not Quite Navy ink onto a strip of Whisper White that I cut with little flagged ends. SO cute !! 

I love how this turned out !! I would totally leave this tag on while using the soap as well, would really dress up a counter in a bathroom or a kitchen, don't you think ?? Thanks a lot for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
