My sister and I recently discovered Stampin Up! and loved this stamp set we saw in their catalog called It's a Wrap. The stamps were initially made to wrap around Hershey Nuggets but were also used like tags. Well, we are on a buying ban right now called Use Your Stash on the Circle message board hosted by MamaC. So I decided, "Hey, I can make some using my Cricut for my sister." The best thing about it is that I could use any paper, any label, and any sentiment.
I used the Every Day Paper Dolls cartridge to make the wrapper. The band-aid on page 53 was the perfect shape. I used my gypsy to make it 3 x 1 in and to erase the little holes and lines. You can use any rectangle from any cartridge or even just cut using a paper trimmer.
I used Art Philosophy for the label. I cut the image at 1 in. and then used a distress marker to highlight edge.
I pasted the label on top of the wrapper and stamped the labels "enjoy", "joy", or "thanks".
