The challenge from Cee Cee was to make something “sparkly and halloween inspired”, with black cs, glitter & a choice of whatever colour we desired. (I chose Always Artichoke)
This is the image she gave us, from Pottery Barn:
I decided to make a gift tag for a wine bottle. This year, we’re having a more formal hors d’oeuvres party with the neighbours after the kids get back from trick or treating. It’s a Friday night & hopefully the weather will be nice. We have, for years, sat out with our neighbours, as children came to the door. We get to say ‘hi’ to the parents & have an evening of laughter & chatting.
Here’s the ‘wine tag’. It measure 3 1/2″ x 11″, nothing fancy.
I used Martha Stewart’s Acrylic Letter Stamps and her ‘hematite’ glitter. I thought I’d try her ‘glue pad’ to stamp the letters. It was alright. I have issues putting glitter on cards. It never seems to work right for me. Always gets everywhere. Still looking for the best way to do it.
I used 1 3/4″ & 1 3/8″ Circle Punch for the top of the bottle to poke through & the trim around the neck of the bottle. Used the corner photo punch & some rhinestones. I also used the Spider Web Cuttlebug embossing template. It is so cool. I used it on this Halloween project too.
The ‘card’ measure 3 1/2″ x 11″ so the embossing template doesn’t quite meet at the middle (maybe 1/2″ off), so I just cover the middle section with a tag.
Okay, here’s what it looks like when tied on to the wine bottle, the ribbon is just pulled through the small oval punches at the side & then looped around.
Always Artichoke CS & PP, Black Ribbon, Rhinestones, Corner Photo Punch, Oval Slot punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Corner Rounder, Cuttlebug Web Embossing Template, Martha Stewart Acrylic Stamps, MS Glue Pad, MS Hematite Glitter.
Thanks for the fun, Cee Cee!
