Just For You

I have a super quick post today.  As I was perusing Pinterest the other day to get ideas for the gift tags I was to make, I came across a larger tag designed to hang on a bottle of wine.  I thought that was such a cute idea so I set out to make a few this morning.

I used all the same basics as I used on yesterday's post about gift tags such as double thickness of all the papers, etc.  I have these QuicKutz Label Dies from several years ago so I used the largest 2 sizes to cut my tags.  Since the ribbon would have a loop to slip over the neck of the wine bottle, it didn't matter that the labels didn't have a hole, but you could easily put one in using a hole punch, a silent setter or whatever method you have.  I just happen to like the little criss cross of the ribbon on the center of the label.  Simon Says Stamp has labels dies in a wide variety of styles and sizes.

I cut my favorite "Thanks" die from Mama Elephant using Bazzill Marshmallow 100# Card Stock.  I laid the die cut on my craft mat and inked it up with Versamark, then put Ranger Super Fine Detail Silver Embossing Powder all over it and heat set it.  I repeated that process two additional times but I didn't really notice the third time making much of a difference.  I like to do this to get a very three dimensional type of decorative element.  Silver embossing powder melts the smoothest and fastest of any embossing powder I have and I actually tried several including a new sparkle embossing powder from Tsukineko, Iridescent Sparkle, Diamond Sparkle and Opaque White.

This tag went together fairly quickly once I finished cutting all the pieces.  We all get those last minute invitations to dinner or a party during the holiday season and I thought it would be handy to have a few of these ready to go and slip over the neck of a wine bottle as a hostess gift.  I used a combination of Ranger Multi Medium Matte, Glue Dots and Foam Squares with ribbon I already had.  A few fun little sequins to make it feel festive and I was finished.

Black is always in style but you could make something similar in any colors you like.  Thanks for stopping by today!
