Tres Jolie Kit Club–Gift Tags–November 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all! Holiday gift shopping season officially begins tomorrow with Black Friday, followed by Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday! And with all the gifts being given, whether they are handmade or store-bought – or in the case of us crafters and artists, store-bought to be handmade – I have some gift tags made using the Tres Jolie Kit Club November 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit for you this week to add to gifts, give as gifts, or use as decoration!


Make sure you swing by and check out the video to catch the process of my tag-making!

When I started this poinsettia tag, I didn’t have any direction in mind to go, I just love poinsettias! I grabbed up my poinsettia embossing folder and a piece of red cardstock and got to work. As I was looking at the embossed image, I decided it need a little extra color, so I started adding embossing powder to the leaves and foliage – until I found myself done and thinking I needed to bring the poinsettia back into focus. So I added embossing powder to the petals and a touch of gold embossing powder to the center. This turned out to be a double-embossed poinsettia tag!

I wanted to mute the background a bit, so I sprayed on some Antique Linen Distress Oxide, trimmed down the edges of the cardstock, and started cutting out the edges of the petals. I had only planned on cutting just enough to give the petals a little curl, but as I went along, I realized if I added a back, I could make a little tuck-in spot – so that’s what this tag is; a tuck-in tag that would be great for a letter or gift card!

This tag is another double-embossed image. After I embossed the snow flurries on the cardstock, I used a water brush and my Salvaged Patina Distress Watercolor pencil to add a touch of color to the raised image. Then I topped it off with some Antiquities Embossing Powder – which, if you don’t know, is a matte finish powder – then added some Aqua Tinsel embossing powder to the (mostly) background around the flurries.

This tag also has some Antique Linen Distress Oxide to age it up, and I used my craft knife and small scissors to cut out the section of flurry so I could tuck the ephemera bit in.

This next tag was an easy-peasy mixed media tag – there’s only one medium on it! I used my candy stipe stencil and some Stickles from my stash to add some shine to the striped paper, roughed up the edge of the green candy paper, glued it in place, and folded the top over. Then I stitched on the gingerbread man tag.


I used all of the leaves and pine needles I had die cut out to create my little wreath for this tag. The lid on my Micro-Glaze jar was just the right size circle to trace so I would have something to follow to help me make sure my wreath stayed round and didn’t inadvertently become an off-center oval! (Which it would have if I had tried to free-style this wreath!!)

I just worked my way around the wreath layering and tucking in the pieces, trying to alternate the patterns so I wouldn’t end up with a lop-sided color scheme, then I glued down the little ornament pieces and set it off to dry.


This tag was created using the “Hello Deer” cut-apart piece from the paper pack, I just cut it up a bit more so I could layer the words up for some dimension and add a bit of extra color with some of the pink and red striped paper peeking out the bottom.

These last three tags are all just pieces stitched together – they also all have the largest rectangles laminated because I had originally planned on using them in my cookbook that was shared on November 3rd.

For all of the stamping, I used some Staz-On so I could stamp on the laminated surfaces as well as the paper. Then I just added some red baker’s twine to the tag holes where there was one and called it done!

I hope you are having/did have a fabulous holiday if you celebrate, if you don’t celebrate I hope you are having/did have a fabulous Thursday!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Father’s Day Coupons & Envelopes!-May 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all!

Since I did Mother’s Day Cards at the beginning of the month, I decided to do some Father’s Day Coupon’s and gift envelopes as my final May project using the May 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I created a few different designs to use as examples and have some example phrases to use with your coupon book. There are links to free PDFs for the different coupons throughout the blog, and over at CornerScrapsStudio you can get the PDFs, STUDIO3, and PNG files from my Etsy shop. I never “fully” completed a coupon book – the closest is my “Unlimited” tags – because I don’t have a personal use for Father’s Day coupons, and all our kids are old enough to worry about it themselves! (by old enough, I mean they no longer have any age restrictions on any purchases Rolling on the floor laughing)


Check out my video to check out all the different ideas I cover for envelopes and coupons!



First up are my “Vintage Gold” coupons. I designed these coupons to look as though they are on old paper with gold font and trim. These examples are printed on some HP Premium Choice LaserJet Paper; a type of high-resolution paper designed for business documents that need clear, crisp images. You can get the “Vintage Gold” PDF on DropBox (for personal use only, please!) if you would like to print them out. (**NOTE: All PDF files offered throughout this post are not offered, created, or owned by Tres Jolie Kit Club. I am the creator and owner of the files and offer the PDFs for your personal use.)

The envelope for these coupons is a hand-folded sheet of the 6×6 patterned paper. I just eyeballed the center and eyeballed where I wanted the folds. Then for a little decoration on the front, I added a couple of the leftover hearts from my Mother’s Day Cards and one of the Prima flowers.

This next coupon design I have dubbed “Modern,” not for any particular reason, it is just what came to me when I needed some names to distinguish between the different designs! I printed my “Modern” coupons on some blue cardstock using my regular color InkJet printer. I don’t know if it’s just my particular brand of printer or the ink, but I didn’t have a bleeding problem on my prints. However, a few years ago I had a different printer that did like to bleed. A lot. So I came up with something to help keep that from happening! I discovered that if I spray the side I will be printing on with some Krylon Workable Fixatif and let it dry before printing, my bleeding, for the most part, was gone! I was actually able to print on shipping label sticker paper using this method and all of my images and fonts stayed clear! (Just remember to spray in a well-ventilated area!). If you would like to see all the coupons, you can swing by and pick up the “Modern” PDF on DropBox (for personal use only).

I have a couple of different envelope examples for these coupons. One I made to have a tie closure, so I never sealed any of the flaps. I added an eyelet in the bottom flap and attached one of the flair from the kit to the top flap, then ran a piece of twine through the eyelet to tie the envelope closed. The second envelope I made I left open. I folded the top flap back and glued it in place so the coupons would be able to stick out the top.

I made a couple of mini envelopes to hold some Father’s Day Tokens. The tokens have all the same tasks but in an itty bitty size! I thought there were a couple of ways to use the tokens – you could print them out on sticker paper and make a full coordinating sheet to go with so the stickers could be placed as they get used, or you could print them out on regular paper, cut them into squares, staple the stack together if you want, and put them in the envelope (or staple them to the envelope). You can go grab the “Tokens” PDF on DropBox if you’re interested! (For personal use only)

Here is the final style of the full set of coupons I created. For this example, I printed them on some glossy photo paper and decided to make a little booklet. My photo paper doesn’t slide very well, so instead of trying to get them in and out of an envelope, I thought a booklet would work better. A couple ideas of for securing your booklet are to use brads if they are long enough, or some twine/ribbon ran through a couple of holes. Here is the link for the “Square ‘Stamp’ Edge” PDF on DropBox, if you are interested. (For personal use only)


In addition to the “single-use” coupons, I thought making “Unlimited” coupons would be a nice addition. I have some that are sized to fit the tags from this month’s kit – Unlimited Bear Hugs, Game of Catch, and Spending The Day Together – and I turned them into sketches in Silhouette Studio, but you can also print the “Unlimited Tags” PDF on DropBox if you would like (For Personal Use Only). I have a little envelope I made for them with the top flap folded back and glued open, and a hole with an eyelet so the tags can be tied to the envelope, to keep everything together.


My final example is another “Unlimited” coupon in the form of an ATC. Making an ATC allows some personalized artwork to also be part of the gift! For my ATC I cut a piece of the patterned paper to size, added some of the lattice-ish bits I had left from my Mother’s Day Cards, used some of the Finnabair micas from this month’s Mixed Media Kit, popped on some Say-It-In-Crystals and a flower, then printed out my phrase and glued it on.

For the envelope, I made an ATC-sized pocket. It is an expandable pocket I saw a lady make using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board a few (5+) years ago on YouTube. I made myself a little note to tape to my punch board with the measurements, so now I don’t know who I originally saw!

Measurements & (Original) Instructions (6”x6” paper size):

  1. At the 2-1/4” mark, punch & score
  2. Move over to the 3-1/4”, punch & score
  3. Turn
  4. Line up with marker, punch & score
  5. Line up next line marker, punch – NO score (**In my video, I score here, then used my scoreboard to add another scoreline between the two made on the punch board so I had an accordion fold envelope.)
  6. Turn
  7. Repeat 1-5
  8. Using scissors, cut the little sections where your score lines … ummm … overhang … so you can fold your flaps (I hope this made sense!)

This will give you an envelope that is 2-3/4”x3-1/4”. If you’d like some examples for Father’s Day phrases you can get the Father’s Day Phrases PDF on DropBox or just check out this photo for ideas!



Thank you for joining me here in my corner, I hope you enjoyed these little coupon book ideas and they gave you some inspiration for making your own coupon books – whether they be for Father’s Day and the individual filling the father role, your partner for an anniversary, a birthday, or anytime!
