I made a couple of quick gift idea to celebrate Susanna & here’s the first:
The template is from the talented Adela of Creations by AR & it’s called Bottle of Cheer. I love it.
Using her SVG — which is scaleable — I sized it down a bit so it would fit a vanilla bean tube.
I realize it looks as though you’re giving a shooter bottle of Bourbon, but it is bourbon vanilla beans — promise!
The second wine-themed fun gift idea is … a wine cork:
It’s best to use a SMALLER screw hook (so as not to expand the cork too much. I used a bigger one here for ease of photography, but this is the idea:
Then decorate. You could use a drawer pull of whatever you like. I used pearl-ex & paint daubers on Grunge board.
Have a great one, Susanna! You’re the best!
Paper Craft Planet’s 3D 134 Tuesday … finally … Sorry this is about 6 hours late. I’ll be honest here I was updating google calendar with the kids rediculous activities schedule & I noticed about an hour ago that I had completely forgotten about the challenge … bad me.
To that … good news, THIS IS a quick craft! Bwha ha. Hopefully you enjoy it.
I have an old cricut machine & occasionally have problems finding the small mats. Here’s a secret. You can cut a big mat & make 3 small mats …
And Bob’s Yur Uncle ..
