vintage gift tags and stand

I’ve been kicking the card stand idea around for awhile. I would love to be able to display a card easily but alas, I only have one frog. So I came up with this decorative stand design that is easily cut out and then folded to include along with a greeting card. Fun, eh?

But even more fun is playing with these little vintage postcard printable. I found them when I was searching for designs to print on fabric the other day. These were really quite simple and look stunning with the popped up elements and a little bit of glitter. Finish with a bow and it’s a keeper for sure.

I love this old Santa with a maritime scene.

And this little angel is cute, too.

But I love the little snow birds most of all.

Tips for making these gift tags:

-Print them smaller than a normal post card.

-Copy elements to cut out and pop up and print along with the master.

-Glitter before anything else.

-Cut out and add popup details using dimensional adhesive like pop dots.

-Finish with a bow and decorative scissors.

-Don’t forget to include a decorative stand that coordinates.

Behold the loveliness!

I cut mine out of cardstock at 6″ wide. Score and fold in half. Tada! They are ready to use. How easy was that?

    (I used the same snow-birds image for a gift tag.)

    Can’t get the instructions for the stand to open. Sure would like to make this.

    Irene – the file included here is in a zip format and included the stand in a bunch of different file types. There are a lot of free programs to open the zip file, just do an online search. As far as instructions, the only instructions are on the post. I hope this helps.

So, what do you think ?
