We made a bottle tag during our "Creative Cafe" a few weeks back using the Vintage Noel die from Sizzix / Tim Holtz. Make up a few of these, and keep a few bottles of wine or sparkling cider on hand. You'll have an instant hostess gift and/or something for that friend or neighbor that stops by with an unexpected gift.
We thought we'd share this, and the instructions, on our blog for those of you that missed it.
Supplies you'll need:
1. Sizzix/Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers die- Mini Cabinet Card
2. Sizzix/Tim Holtz Vintage Noel die
3. An embossing folder ( I used one from Sizzix)
2. A border punch ( I used one from EK Success)
3. Circle punch or die - approximately 1.5 inches
5. Dimensional foam dots
1. Caramel glittered cardstock from American Crafts
2. Cardstock (I used red cardstock)
5. Ribbon- 18 inches
Create the top of the tag by cutting a piece of cardstock with the Movers and Shapers Mini Cabinet Card die from Sizzix/ Tim Holtz.
Score it 2 inches from the flat side (bottom). See above.
Punch a 1.5 inch circle (I used sticky notes) from a scrap of paper and adhere it to the top, rounded portion of the mini cabinet card die cut piece. I use this for a guide when punching the actual circle.
Using the same 1.5 inch circle punch, position it over the "scrap" circle that you stuck down in the previous step. Punch through to create a circle in the top of your mini cabinet card die cut piece. This will be the opening that you position over the neck of the bottle. If you are planning on giving Champagne, you made need a slightly larger opening.
Fold on the score line. You should now have a piece that looks like the image above.
To finish the bottle tag. I embossed a piece of matching cardstock measuring 3"x 4" and attached it to the portion of the mini cabinet card die cut piece that does not have the circle cut from it. This will extend the 2" portion that hangs down the front of the bottle to 4". I used American Crafts POW glitter paper and punched a border with an EK Success border punch and attached it to the bottom of the tag. I used the same paper to cut NOEL from the Vintage Noel die from Sizzix / Tim Holtz and attached it to the front with foam dimensional dots. Finally, add a ribbon and message on the back (in gold pen, of course!)
