Create 3 Beautiful Christmas / Holiday Tags with Gift Box using the Sweet Little Stockings Stamp Set

Hello My Crafting Friends,

Today I am sharing my August Stampin’ Up 2021 Artisan Design Team showcase projects. 

For my project this month I decided to make a set of tags with a gift box that you can give as a little gift to teachers or neighbors for the Christmas holiday. I used the Sweet Little Stockings Stamp Set and coordinating products from the suite, like the Stockings Dies, and Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper. Along with sharing these festive tags with you I also want to share a quick masking technique to add small details to the wrapping paper on the presents. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to create something today.

1- Cut out the banner shape from the Jolly Felt. Adhere to matching Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper. Mimic the shape of the Banner to the DSP and remove the excess paper with Paper Snips.

2- If you desire, you can stitch around the Felt to add a little more detail. I used a basic stitch with white thread on my sewing machine. Make sure to attach 10” of Ribbon to the top of each tag, by folding it in half and attaching it about ½” into the felt, then stitch back and forth with your sewing machine.

3- Stamp the images from the Sweet Little Stockings Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. Color with coordinating Stampin’ Blend Markers and cut out with coordinating dies.

4- Attach the stamped images in different arrangements to the 2” circles. Use dimensionals as you like to add depth. Then attach the Vellum Circles to the Tags by placing adhesive behind the elements so it doesn’t show.

5- Stamp your choice of greetings in Memento Black Ink and fussy cut out. Add these to the Tags. Add some coordinating embellishments from the Matte Decorative Dots.


1- Put together one of the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. Wrap the 5 ½” x 12” piece around the box starting with the front of the bottom and moving to the top. Wrap the excess around the top flat to make a seamless look. TIP – adhere as you go instead of adding all the adhesive first.

2- Cut out a banner shape from the Jolly Felt. Remove the point with a pair of good scissors so you just have a rectangle. Stitch around the edge with your sewing machine to match the tags.

3- Wrap the Pool Party Ribbon around the box and tie a bow on the right side. Add the Felt Piece to the center of the top flap with strong adhesive.

4- Add three presents to a 2” Vellum Circle. TIP – to add stamped images to the wrapping paper, create a mask by stamping the present on a sticky note, cut out the open areas you want to add details to and place it over the stamped and colored present. Then stamp your smaller images inside with a darker color of ink.

5- Add the Vellum Circle to the center of the Felt, then stamp and add your choice of greeting. Add three embellishments from the Matte Decorative Dots.
