How to Make

1.  Begin by cutting a piece of Dovecraft A4 Kraft Card down to 17.5cm x 8cm. With your piece of card vertical on your desk, measure 5cm down from the top and score a horizontal line from this measurement.

2.  Pick the smallest die within the First Edition Nesting Scalloped Circle Die Set and die cut this above the score line, in the centre.





3.  Print your free paper download and choose one design. Cut this down to 12cm x 7.5cm. Adhere to the large section of the Kraft tag, using Dovecraft Perma Fix Tape.




4.  Cut a 10.5 x 7.5cm piece of Dovecraft Kraft card, mat and layer with a piece of 10cm x 7cm complementing paper from your download.





5.  Die cut the Dovecraft Gingerbread man die onto Dovecraft Kraft card and First Edition Textured red card stock. Take the smaller detailed pieces from the red card stock die cut and place them into the kraft card die cut. Secure the red pieces by adding tape to the back.





6.  Adhere the gingerbread man die cut to the layered, 10.5 x 7.5cm piece of card you prepared.





7.  Die cut the Dovecraft ‘Happy Christmas’ sentiment on to Dovecraft Kraft card. Adhere a piece of First Edition red textured stock to the back and trim around the edges. Stick this underneath your gingerbread man with 3D foam squares. Hold onto the snowflake die cuts.





8.  Using the Dovecraft Tags Die Set, die cut the heart onto Kraft card and the tag on red card stock.




9.  Thread a length of Dovecraft Twine through the two tags, wrap it around the piece of card you prepared and tie it at the front. Secure the tags by adding a 3D square to the back of the heart die cut. Adhere your card to the bottle tag.





10.  Add a gem to the top of your heart die cut, add red Dovecraft glitter glue to the heart and gingerbread man and adhere the snowflake die cuts to your tag.

This sweet bottle tag will add a wonderful finish to your Christmas present.

Alternatively you could create an adorable advent calendar using the free papers. Decorate each tag with a different paper design to make each day stand out!




This collection of designs are perfect for creating a simple yet effective design. Layered with a die cut, your card will sit lovely in any home!
