I was going to try to buy items that were in 18-packs. But I couldn't find 18 items and many were expensive and not quite useful so I decided on making 18 gift tags and wrapping her favorite candy/gum in the Tag a Bag gift bags with a $5 bill.
When I started designing her ensemble I decided to use the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die. I thought it would allow me the flexibility to create different designs, while similar, on each tag. And of course, I had to use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I am so thrilled to have this punch!! It really made this project go so much faster!
To make the tags I cut cardstock into pieces that were 2" by 4" and then ran them through the big shot using the hexagon hive thinlit. I saved the inside hexagons and used them to fill in the tags to add a little color. I used 2-way glue to glue the hexagon hive to whisper white cardstock and then punched the tag with the scalloped tag punch.
For the numbers I used the Morning Post Numbers Stamp Set and punched them using the hexagon punch.
I used 5 different colors, matching them to the 3/4" chevron ribbon I had on hand. Pretty simple in that respect!
I am not sure it was as much fun to open her gifts since the gifts were all pretty much the same (although getting 18 $5 bills was kind of fun). I figured it would embarrass her if I bought her underwear like I bought her sister!
