Embossed Heart-shaped Tags with the eBosser

I am over the moon for my Craftwell eBosser. It works with any die cutting, embossing, and letterpress supplies and materials, including Sizzix, Cuttlebug, L Letterpress, Spellbinders, Fiskars, and more. It's pretty much an all-in-one machine for everything, and it's completely automatic. No Cranking!!! Anyway check out the Craftwell eBosser HERE!

These heart-shaped, embossed cutouts are a perfect way to lend a sweet handmade look to centerpieces and bouquets. This technique can also be used for place cards, escort cards, and on a cake or dessert table.

Supplies:

  • Large paint chips form the hardware store;
  • Embossing ink, powder, and a heat gun;
  • Small stamps;
  • Heart shaped dies;
  • 18 gauge copper wire;
  • Needle-nosed pliers;
  • Hole punch;
  • Die-cut tool. I prefer the electronic eBosser

Step 1: Cut out your heart-shape on your paint chip using a heart-shaped die and the eBosser (or other die cut machine)

Step 2: Stamp and emboss the heart-shaped tags.

Step 3: Punch a hole in the corner, thread through with the copper wire, and use the needle-nosed pliers to create a loop that will hold the heart in place. Shape the wire into a hook or a U-shape so it will face your guests in your centerpieces and bouquets.

Final Tip: Consider applying some washi tape, or scrap paper to the backs. Simply use you dies and eBosser to cut out the shapes and glue stick to the back. Alternately, you can apply a light coat of acrylic pain or spray paint to the back to cover up the barcode. This is especially true for centerpieces.
