Working with Core Tags

Kate here!  Today I will be showing you a quick and easy way to use Core’dinations Core Tags as reusable accents for gift bags and cards.
Kate Nolan-Denham_Core'dinations_Mini Gift Bags & Cards

Core’dinations Supplies:

Other Supplies:

  • Darice Mini Gift Bags
  • Darice Embossing Folder
  • Fiskars Crimper
  • CM Circle Punch
  • Papertrey Ink Stamp
  • Couture Creations Embossing Folder
  • Sizzix Stamp & Die Set
  • Scor-Pal
I created a simple bag tag for these cute mini-bags from Darice. Here’s how you can create this  removable tag:
Step 1.  Crimp a large Core’dinations Sandable Core Tag using a Fiskars Crimper. 
Step 2. Punch a 1″ circle in the middle of a small Core’dinations Sandable Core Tag.  I used a CM Circle Punch and trim the bottom of the tag for a banner effect.
Step 3.  Sand and dust both tags.
Step 4.  Stamp your sentiment on a 1.25″ x 1.25″ inch piece of Core’dinations Core Basic 110lb Smooth Cardstock and place behind the circle on the small CoreTag.
Step 5.  Layer and adhere the tags together.
Step 6. Punch holes in the bag where the grommets to match up with the holes on the layered tags. Now tie the tags onto the bag with some tulle. To add this tag to card, just untie the tags from the gift bag and attach to a card base.
The same tag attached onto a card:
Super cute idea, isn’t it?
Here is another example of how I reused a gift bag tag for a card…
Core Tip:  When using two CoreTags layered on top of each other (like in my Thank You Tag above), just pop out the grommets from both tags before layering and then add just put one of the grommets back in.  These grommets remove easily!

National Aviation Day

Filed under Core Blog

You can Imagine. Dream. Fly with us today!  Using a variety of Core’dinations products I was able to create this fun card to celebrate National Aviation Day.
Core’dinations Supplies:
 The card base is a standard A2 cardbase, my favorite size, made from Core’dinations Distress Collection.  Of course, I distressed the edges a bit with my Sand It Gadget!
 The background is an embossed piece of Core’dinations Kraft-Core.  I sanded the embossed image down quite a bit and ran my green ink over the embossed/sanded image, leaving some of the Kraft-Core peeking through.
To create my sentiment, I trimmed up a Smooth CoreTag to fit in the corner.  I always save the trimmed off part of my CoreTags to use on other projects.
Tip of the day: Core’dinations Cardstock makes a sturdy base for stickers.  On my card, I adhered the cute airplane sticker to a sanded piece of the same base cardstock and then trimmed around the sticker.

Mary Pat Siehl here and I love Back to School time and I love making nice little cards for my son’s teachers just to say “hi” and ” here’s to a great year!”  … Core’dinations and Petaloo are the perfect partners for these cards.
First up I have a CAS card using the Spotted Core and lightly sanded it to expose the ColorCore cardstock.  I then added a fun die cut using the 110 lb. Smooth Cardstock that was stamped.  I then added the wonderful flowers from Petaloo for my embellishments.

For my second card I used the Brand New Chalk Core Note Cards.  Can I tell you that these note cards are AMAZING! The make cardmaking so easy!  I simply scored my card, sanded it and then added a Core Tag with my sentiment and then my Petaloo flowers and I was done!  So CAS and so much fun!

Suzanna Lee here and over the months that I have designed for Core’dinations, I have shared with you many of the plus’ of working with Core’dinations cardstock. With the design team call announced (yes, you TOO could design for Core, see more about the call here) you know that this term is winding down for us and I have one last plus to share with you; no matter which manufacturer you put along side Core’dinations, there is always a WIDE assortment of coordinating Core’dinations cardstock to work with.
I have yet to find a company who I can’t coordinate Core’dinations cardstock with. Today we are partnering with Petaloo and just look at how amazing this Graphic 45 Dark’s collection pairs up with the Petaloo flowers! I was sent an assortment of different flowers that I mixed and matched to grow my garden with – a lovely bed of flowers indeed!
