12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 4 – A TAG FOR YOUR WINE!

Today for Week 4 of 12 Weeks of Christmas I have a cute tag for you.  Quite often we might give a bottle of wine to a workmate, a neighbour or to a friend when we visit for dinner.  Why not dress up the bottle and add a tag to it.  These are very quick to make and good to have on hand.  I have been making them for the Craft Fairs I do and they are very popular.

I actually have 2 tags to share with you today that I have made recently.

The first one is on Shaded Spruce card with some of the gorgeous Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  The deer from the Detailed Deer Thinlits is cut from Copper Foil.

This tag below is used the Farmhouse Christmas bundle.  I stamped the farmhouse in Crumb Cake on to Crumb Cake card and cut that out.  I kept it simple so I didn’t have to colour them in. 🙂  The paper is also from the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. 

Do you want to make them? They are very easy.  Let me tell you.

MAKE YOUR OWN WINE BOTTLE TAG

You can create these any size you like.  I will give you the measurements for these ones.

Metric: Cut your card 7cm x 21cm.  Score at 7cm.    Imperial: Cut your card   3″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 3″.

Use one of the smaller circle dies from the Layering Circle Framelits and cut a circle in the small square section at the top.

Decorate as you desire.  I cut the piece of Designer Series Paper slightly smaller than the lower length of the tag.

I made some of these tags a few years back.  If you want to see these versions then head to this post -> HERE.

MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS PIZZA BOX!

I created this Pizza Box project for a Christmas class a few weeks ago.  I didn’t share the box close-up at the time so I thought I would share it with you today.

I used 2 different pieces from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper pack. and layered them on an Old Olive Card mat.

A Stitched Shapes Circle was cut from the Gold Foil Sheets.  The sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments was cut with a Layered Circle Framelit.   To finish it I stamped holly leaves and berries from the Holly Berry Happiness set and punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.

You can decorate a number of these boxes in no time and fill them with treats for Christmas.

Hope you are not getting too stressed with all that last minute Christmas preparations,

Latte 12 weeks Header

We are now up to Week 8!!! Today’s project is brought to you by Libby.  This is very cute!  Libby has made a bag with a shaker frame on the front, a Star Gift Box and two cards to pop inside the bag.This would make a lovely gift to give someone before Christmas.

Here is a closer look at the bag.  What a great idea having the Shaker Star on the front!

The shaker frame is made using the Stars Framelit Dies, ‘Many Merry Stars’ Photopolymer Stamp Set, Confetti Stars Punch with Red Glimmer Paper and Frosted Sequins.

The bag itself is made using the ‘Under the Tree’ Speciality Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.

The Star Gift Box has a small Kit Kat Chocolate inside it and would be great as a stocking filler or a teacher gift, teamed with a bottle of wine or a coffee voucher etc.

The two cards also use the ‘Many Merry Stars’ Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stars Framelit Dies with the Big Shot.

This card uses layering of stars and Dimensionals to give depth and dimension. Both cards are stamped inside and the envelopes are also stamped.

The last card uses the nesting of the Stars Framelit Dies again to make a frame of Gold Glimmer Paper which adds some sparkle to this card along with the Frosted Sequins.

MORE CRAFT FAIR PROJECTS!

I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂  The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these.  Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those).  I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.

Here are some of the projects I have recently made.

Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders.  These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts.  I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements.  These were decorated with all kinds of stars.  Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.

Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope.  I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though.  I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below.  Just check your own currency note size to fit.

MONEY HOLDER  (in metric).

Cut card to 18cmx18cm.  Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.

Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch.  Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.

Insert

Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half.  Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end.  Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency.  You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.

Now how can you forget your furry friend.  These were very popular at my fairs.  I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half.  The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.
