Tag” Note Card and Gift Tag Set

by Kris Hankins

“Tag” Note Card and Gift Tag Set

I love this new S.E.I. Jocelyn double-sided paper. It has such pretty designs and foiled, glittered and embossed patterns. I made this note card and gift tag set using these beautiful new papers.


  • S.E.I. Double-Sided Paper
    • Jocelyn – BFF, Foil double-sided paper     ( SEI-8-5207   $0.99)
    • Jocelyn – ILU, glitter double-sided paper     ( SEI-8-5204   $0.99)
    • Jocelyn – LOL, glitter double-sided paper     ( SEI-8-5201   $0.99)
    • Jocelyn – BRB, glitter double-sided paper     ( SEI-8-5206   $0.99)
    • Jocelyn – ROTFL, glitter double-sided paper     ( SEI-8-5202   $0.99)
  • Kaiser Craft Embellishments
    • Kaiser Craft Pearls, Champagne     ( KAI-PRL-714   $1.99)
    • Kaiser Craft Rhinestones, Mint Green     ( KAI-RH-707   $1.99)
  • Punches
  • Other
    • Large Tag, 6.25” x 3 1/8”     ( SUN-TM300   $7.00/pkg)
    • Jumbo Tag, 8.5” x 4 1/8” cut from white card stock
    • 3D Foam Squares     ( BC-foam-lgsq   $2.99)
    • Ribbon Scraps, (2) 6" pieces


  • You need two tags. One 8 ½“ x 4 1/8 “ in size for the note card, and one 6 ¼” x 3 1/8” for the gift tag. To get the jumbo sized tag, cut from white cardstock.

  • Using the Marvy punches, punch flower and scallop shapes from the Jocelyn BFF paper. Be sure to capture a variety of colors, textures, and patterns.

  • Using scissors, cut one flower from the Jocelyn ROTFL paper.

  • Measure both tags and find the center measurement. For my jumbo tag (note card) my center was 4.25” The center measurement for the smaller tag (gift tag) was 3 1/8”.

    After finding the center measurement, offset your score line by 1/8”. Example – 8 ½” tag with the center measurement of 4 1/4” will be scored at 4 3/8” from the bottom/square end of tag.

  • When the tags are folded on the score lines, the fronts of the cards will be ¼” narrower than the back of cards. This allows for contrasting paper on the inside of card s to show.

  • The front of my note card is covered with Jocelyn ILU paper. You will need to trim the corner angles and punch a new hole after adhering the paper to the front of the tag.

    The inside of the note card is lined with Jocelyn LOL paper. Line only the back panel. This paper will show along the cards edge when the card is closed.

  • I added a border strip of Jocelyn BRB along the folded edge of the note card.

    I did the same basic procedure for the smaller tag (gift tag). I used Jocelyn BRB for the front and Jocelyn LOL on the inside.

  • Next, I decided which flowers I wanted to use on the front of each card.

  • I layered two punched flowers together with 3D foam squares to use on the front of the gift tag.

    I used two punched flowers and one hand cut flower on the note card. The hand cut flower is on 3D foam squares for added depth.

  • The flowers were embellished with Kaiser Craft rhinestones and pearls.

  • To finish of the note card and gift tag set, pieces of coordinating ribbon were tied to the tags.

Try this fun variation in card making. Think outside the box and try making cards from something other than just basic cardstock.
