Birthday Gift Tags Made with the Myths & Magic Suite

It’s another cold, snowy day in Connecticut!  My kids have yet another snow day today.  At the rate we’re going, they are going to be in school until July!

Here’s an idea for some cute tags using the Magical Day Bundle!  I made these last weekend just because I was looking to make something other than a card.  The tags were cut using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and the corners on the bottom were rounded with the rounder punch at the top of the Envelope Punch Board.  I used the Magical Day stamp set to stamp the dragon, knight, and wizard, then cut them out with the coordinating Magical Mates cutting dies.  Both the stamps and the dies are included in the bundle, which saves you 10% off the cost of purchasing them separately!

These were a lot of fun to make!  They were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then handcolored using various Stampin’ Blends markers.  I used a 1 x 2 inch strip of paper from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper on each tag, and also stamped the background of each tag with the little circles and stars stamps in VersaMark ink.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday set, and was stamped in Basic Gray Archival Ink and punched with the Classic Label Punch.  Each little character and sentiment were adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the tags some added height and dimension!

Once the tags were assembled, it was time to embellish!  I added some silver foil circles and stars that were cut from tiny dies from the Magical Mates Dies.  I also added a different color shimmer ribbon to each tag.  The ones I used are Pool Party, Basic Black, and Pear Pizzazz.  The final touch was the addition of Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to each tag.  I only added a little bit, just to give each one a little extra shine:

On the dragon, I added the Wink of Stella to the pointy spines on his back and tail.  It was hard to get a decent pic of the glitter, but I tried!

On the knight, the glitter is on the sword, as well as a couple of the feathers in his helmet.

And then on the wizard, I applied the glitter to his hat!

These tags would be perfect for either girls or boys, but I have to admit, I did make this particular set with my boys in mind!  I even started calling the little knight “Sir Luca the Brave” after my older son, and the wizard “Maximilian, the Great” after my little one.  When I showed them to Luca, he said, “Mom, but I want to be the Dragon!”  (Go figure!)  🙂  I’m thinking of making another set for girls with some of the other stamps in the set.  Stay tuned for those sometime in the next couple of weeks!

I hope wherever you are, you are safe and warm and not getting buried under snow like we are here!  If you have any questions about how these were made, please let me know!

Enjoy your day!
