Bottle Tag

September 11, 2012

Here is a really quick little project for you.  I made this tag to go on a bottle of Chocolate Port that I gave my Dad for Father’s Day.

The idea came from a card I found on Mary Fish’s blog a long time ago which used ribbon to create a tie.  I used Chocolate Chip card to make the hanger.  I punched a hole using the 1-3/8″ circle punch, but of course you would need to make sure that it goes over the neck of your bottle.  I scored the Chocolate Chip card, so that it would hang a little straighter on the bottle.  I ran a piece of Very Vanilla card through the Big Shot using the Stripes Embossing Folder and tied Chocolate Chip 1/2″ Scallop Dots  Ribbon to simulate a tie before attaching it to the Chocolate Chip card.  I stamped Happy Fathers Day from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Chocolate Chip ink.  I used my Framelit bitty Banners to cut the greeting and then attached it to Chocolate Chip card and free hand cut the “v” shape to match.  I attached it over the ribbon to simulate a Tie Clip.  A very simple little tag but it does dress the bottle up somewhat.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
