Hole Punch

This week I decided to make a personalized gift tag that could be used by my family when we give out hostess gifts to our family and friends.  Follow the steps below to make personalized gift tags for your family and friends:
  1. Color the digi stamp (for this project, the image was colored using the Photoshop program).
  2. Import the Digi stamp into your Silhouette (or favorite cutting machine).
  3. Create the sentiment using the Silhouette Cameo cutting machine and place it under the digital stamp. Weld the two pieces together. 
  4. Create a tag using the Silhouette Cameo (or cutting machine of your choice).  Overlay the digi stamp onto the tag and weld everything together.
  5. Print and cut around the tag using a cutting machine (for this project, the Silhouette Cameo was used). Make sure that there are no cut lines for the image/sentiment so that just the outline of the tag is cut.
  6. Hole punch the tag and attach the ribbon to the tag through the hole.
  7. Add your tag to your holiday gifts using colored floss.
