Festive Bouquet Gift Bags and Tags | Tim Holtz Sizzix Christmas 2021

Hey crafty friends! The holidays are upon us and for many of this involves some gift giving. Today I'm sharing a set of handmade Festive Bouquet gift bags and tags featuring the gorgeous Tim Holtz Festive Bouquet Thinlits that were part of his 2021 Sizzix release. These are a perfect way to add a touch of handmade cheer as you wrap gifts for all the special people in your life!

I began by die cutting multiples of the poinsettia and greenery from Distress Heavystock. I then used a foam ink blending tool to apply Distress Ink to the various pieces. Here are the colors I used to create the two flowers:
Pink flowers - Kitsch Flamingo, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs
Red Flowers - Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Rustic Wilderness, and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs

Once the flowers were assembled I adhered them to a die cut created using the Seal Switchlets Embossing Folder and Dies. This products puts a new twist on die cutting because the embossing folder uses embedded magnets to hold 3 different Framelits (die) in place. The designs are interchangeable and can be switched out to create 3 different looks.


The Seals, were die cut and embossed from Distress Heavystock. Using my finger, I lightly applied Sizzix Gold Luster Wax over the raised areas on the paper.


For the center part of each seal and the strips across each gift bag I took a piece of Distress Heavystock and stamped the music note stamp from the Tim Holtz Music and Advert Stamp Set with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then either cut a strip to fit across the bag or used the largest of the Stacked Circle Thinlits to die cut a circle.

To create the tag, I simply punched a hole in the top of the seal and tied it to the gift bag using a piece of hand dyed seam binding. This was dyed using Spun Sugar Distress Spray.

For the sentiments on each piece, I used the Tim Holtz Christmas Tiny Text Stamp Set and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I then trimmed them to size and adhered them to the seals.


I hope you enjoyed this bit of gift bag and tag inspiration featuring the Tim Holtz Festive Bouquet Thinlits.
