Every year I make a handful of goodies for my husband to take to work. One of the final things I get to make is wine bottle tags. Every year he gives his managers a bottle of wine and a gift card. With all the new goodies I learned while making the 12 Tags of Christmas. I have a bunch of cuts I had made while borrowing these dies. I had 15 tags to make so I made 3 styles of tags, 5 each.
This is my take on Tag 12
This WISH tag is all in gold. I picked this big snowflakes up at the $1 Store. They were silver so I glittered them gold. I cut WISH at 3/4" using Sophisticated in gold then layered a shadow of black. I used the shadow cut for the gold, so I needed to repeat in black and offset the gold. To make it pop I added diamond glaze on the letters.
I made this little tissue flower using gold tissue...no stamping this time. I picked up gold tinsel garland for a $1 and stapled it to the bottom of the tag. It even has little gold starts. I hot glued this antiqued gold brad to the flower then glued again to the tag.
I cut my tags using the TH Big Tag Die. I picked up 100 Manila file folders for under $8...that's 4 tags per folder. I stamped the tag with my french script stamp. Then stamped white tissue with my music note background stamp. I modge podged the tag, then layered the tissue over the tag. Using my heat gun I dried the tag, then added Rock Candy to give the tag a vintage cracked look. Then I added distress ink Tea Dye to the edges.
This tag has a lot going on. I sprayed adhesive to my tag, layered tin foil then ran the tag through my Snow Flurries embossing folder. I painted with acrylic paint, dried with my heat gun then distressed with some sandpaper. Gently scuff the paint off the snowflakes to expose the snowflakes. NOEL is cut in silver shimmer paper at 3/4" using Sophisticated. I added diamond glaze to the letters for a pop.
This snowman die I borrowed and did a ton of cuts in white, Kraft and cereal boxes. The snowman is inked in distress inks, faded jeans and broken china on white. I ran picket fence stain over and finished with Rock Candy crackle. A silver jingle and silver pipe cleaner finishes off the snowman.
For $1 I picked up this silver tinsel garland and have used a ton of it over the past weeks. I stamped it onto the bottom of the tag, then layered some silver mesh ribbon with a silver snowflake brad in the bottom corner. It's very subtle.
I went a little simpler...ok not really. The tag was stamped in Versamark and clear embossed. I inked with fire brick, Forrest moss and peeled paint exposing my stamp and making it pop. Again, I borrowed Snow Tree die, inked it and layered twice with UTEE giving the tree a thick glassy look.
To fill the corner I used my new Festive Greenery die for some holy leaves. I borrowed the pine cone (I suck at making them) as my GF just got it. I really loves these little cones...if only I was better at making them! I cut a little sprig of greenery from my mini fake tree and wrapped some of these berries from garland I picked up for $1.
Had to make these little ornaments again. The paper I am using is from TH Seasonal pack. I guess I keep picking the more muted images as they don't pop too much!
For added embellishment I used my SU Antique Brads to hold the twine for the ornament. Then added this glass mini ornament to the ribbon.
I also needed to add a spot to hold a GC. But I didn't want to take away from the front of the tag. I cut my mini Kraft bags down to 3 3/4", then punching with my scallop punch a little peaker spot to see the VISA GC. To keep it simple I stamped in vintage photo this TH deer and clear embossed. Tieing it off with some twine. Then stamping my OH SCRAP stamp...hehe:)
Here are all the bottles and their tags together.
