MFT Stamps - February Hits & Highlights

Hello everyone!  For this months' Hit & Highlights Feature, we were challenged to use the Tic Tac Toe acrylic shapes without using the Tic Tac Toe Die-namics or X's and O's stamp set.  I had a lot of fun coming up with ideas for this challenge!


I decided to make some fun tags where I was also able to combine a bunch of cute stamp sets with the Tic Tac Toe shapes.  Tic Tac Toe designs don't have to be only for Valentine's Day.  You can show your love and/or appreciation for someone any day of the year.


Tags are such a fun way to add a little something more to a gift bag or wrapped present.  I love how fun these Tic Tac Toe pieces are!  They are so classic and simplistic yet very eye catching and so much fun to receive.


To start, I grabbed the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Pastels Paper Pack, took out 6 different colored sheets and diecut 6 tag bases using the Treat Tag Die-namics.  I then used the Square Window & Frame Die-namics to cut out color coordinating frames for each tag.  I used the same coordinating colored card stock (per tag) to also die-cut the top portion of each tag.


Instead of cutting a window in each tag, I simply glued the Tic Tac Toe Pieces where I wanted to place them and then glued the Square Shaker Pouch and Window Frame over top.  You don't have to do it this way (it's fun to leave the pieces loose so that you can shake them) but I found that I preferred my pieces to stay symmetric in this particular project.


I stamped my sentiments onto Smooth White Card Stock and then used one of the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut them out.  Once diecut, I then used a pair of scissors to trim off the fishtails and leave a perfect rectangle.
