Give a little extra with your gifts and create the cutest keepsakes with the new Front and Back Character Gift Tags from Gemini!
The sweet critters peeking over the top of your gift tags, bookmarks and keepsakes can be stamped and coloured on both sides – opening up 360 degrees of creativity. And they’re so simple to create and customise – we’ve created this handy guide!
How to create Front & Back Character Gift Tags
Every set includes a perfectly symmetrical die forming the outline shape of your cute character. This means you only need to die-cut it once before stamping and colouring the front and back however you like! Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Choose your Gemini Front and Back Character Gift Tag set and cardstock. White Stamping Card would work well as at 300gsm, it’s sturdy and perfect for decorating and colouring
- Create the plate combination using the helpful Sandwich Guide in the instruction manual and run through your Gemini Die-cutting machine
- Cut the long section of your tag to size – whether you want to create a shorter gift tag, a longer book-mark shape or somewhere in between!
- Use the stamps included in the set to stamp the front and back of your die-cut design to bring the character to life
- Add a sentiment or two to the front and back of your Character Gift Tag using the sentiment stamps included. For extra dimension why not stamp a smaller die-cut piece of card to layer on top of your tag?
- Have fun with colour to decorate your design. Try Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers for a whole rainbow of shades or pop on some patterned paper for even more colour and fun!
- Punch a hole in the top, loop ribbon or twine through and tie at the top to create your tag
- It’s time for some finishing touches, why not add some glitz and glamour with stick-on gems, or complete your colour scheme with a matching bow?
