Wine Bottle Tag
Yesterday I wanted to make a box or tag for a bottle of wine to take round my husbands cousins for his birthday. I made a wine bottle box previously with the Crafters Companion Big Score and was going to make another for this bottle but I had a massive headache and also had to find the CDRom with the box directions and load it on my laptop so decided to make a tag instead as I would have probably messed it up. Im going to put the instructions on my iPad so they're easy to access next time but this time I went to the trusty Cricut Explore.
To make this tag I made a rectangle which was 6 1/2 inches by 3 inches then added a 1 1/2 inch circle and placed it 1 1/2 inches from the top, in the centre and attached the two shapes.
I added the wine word art image from the Cricut subscription and got it to write it onto the card.
I cut it onto some lovely Bazzill basics cardstock (I had to put my Explore on the glitter card setting so it cut twice as the card was so thick)
Once cut I used my Big Score to score the card at 4 inches from the bottom (I know I could have done it on the Cricut but I prefer scoring myself as its deeper and more precise)
I then distressed the edges a bit and used some distress ink and added some glitter pen to the corners.
As it was for a man I left it as it was but if I was doing it for a female I think I'd add some 3D flowers.
I also made a card to go with the wine.
After all that I was to ill to go round for the party (I ended up in bed before the party started) but I dropped these off today (even though I'm still suffering with a headache and dizziness grr)
