Hello, everyone Today I am posting these simple mini gift tags idea as my 4th post as a September leading lady at winnie and walter blog. I wanted to share who easy and fast you can wrap your treat gift to give it a nice personal touch.

One of my favorite thing to make in the craft field is making gift tags. So couldn't resist sharing these ideas with you.

Usually I have one of a simple gift on my bag in case I need it to give to some kind person , usually we meet them in our daily activities and I feel that I would appreciate there kindness . Or give every now and then some to my kids teachers , our neighbors or close people who surrounding us , wishing them a good day or telling them that I appreciate them.


For me a small chocolate treat with a coffee or tea bag is my favorite combination, I found that this Warm Wishes to You stamp set stamp and there matching die cut Warm Wishes to You Cutaways from winnie and walter my favorite to add a little sentiment without sending a big card or tag to these mini gifts.

For my first idea ..

I made this cup tag . This one was the simple one to make , if you are short in time and you want a simple one.

* First I stamped the mug image from winnie and walter Warm Wishes to You stamp set with festive berries and seedless preserve distress ink , then I applied some of water over them to have this fauxy look .

**Then I stamped it over a heavy glossy card stock , then I dried it with heating tool .

***I die cut it with matching die cutting winnie and walter Warm Wishes to You Cutaways then I cut this coffee part too with gold foam over it .

****I added some gold at the end , then I attached to the little treat with white ribbon . For my second tag idea I did the same idea as the first one with some differences..

*I attached to cube that hold the treats inside (For this cube I used 1.5 inches dimensions ) .I liked the added touches of this steamed heart with the silver glitter foam .

** I made this extra mini circular tag using the smaller steams heart from the winnie and walter Warm Wishes to You stamp set.

You can follow with me by watching how I made them on this video: 

For the 3rd idea

I used the same faux technique over a glossy card stock but I made the liquid part as a vellum shaker .
* I used a white foam die cut from the same as a middle layer with glue from the both sides .


* * as an extra personalized touch I designed this ribbon . I used two of the borders die cut from winnie and walter Georgette Border Cutaways in this wrapping fabric to create this elegant ribbon .


For my 4th one . I made this fluid shaker tag , i like this fun idea.


* I die cut a tag for the base layer

 ** I used a kind of small ziplock to hold the liquid inside . I put some of transparent gel with some brown gel food colors and some gold glittery powder. Then I secured the bag well over the base tag layer.


*** I used a pattern paper as a outer layer for this tag . Die cut the part of the coffee matched the place that I am going to place the mug die cut over

 ****I added this gold steam heart on the top . After I made the tags and I photographed them . I found this piece of die cut edges I made few days ago using the same 2 die cut over a brown felt , So I attached to the base of the tag I found it give it more warmer look. Did you see the bubble on the photo ..

These are the simple easy tags that I liked to share them with you, nothing fancy but they are so perfect to make for my busy days to add a personal touch to the mini kindness gift .
