I managed to squeeze one last project out of my Junkitz paper scraps. (And if you're sick of those colors and patterns, I don't have any scraps left, so that's the last one, I promise.) As I said in my previous post, I was thinking of making a wine bottle tag and figured even without leftover cardstock, I could simply use a strip of patterned paper as my base. This is the first one I ever made and even though I've seen some online, I didn't bother looking up dimensions and simply eyeballed it.
(For those of you who might be curious, I wrote down the dimensions afterwards for when I make more. The base strip is 2-1/4" x 8". I scored the top at 2-1/4" and punched a 1-3/8" circle hole in the center of the square created by the scoring line. A tip to center the hole: punch out a circle in a piece of post-it not and adhere in the center of your square as a reference. Then, use your punch upside down to see where to punch.
I then rounded the corners with a punch and I notched the bottom to create a pennant shape. (The strip is just a little too wide for the Triple Banner Punch sold by Stampin' Up! so you might want to size the width down to 2" if you want to use the punch at the bottom.)
I looked through my sentiments to find something big enough to fill out the space and found an old retired hostess set that was entitled A Little Somethin'. For the scallop circle underneath, I used Pear Pizzazz cardstock and it looked a little bold against the vintage papers, so I used the Timeless Textures (sold in the current Occasions catalogue) to add texture all around the edges. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that new stamp set, especially the texture one that starts dark and fades out. It looks SO good on edges. Look at the striped card I created on this scrapbook page to see what I mean (click on the picture for a close-up). Underneath, I gathered some ribbon scraps that were actually lying on my desk and matched nicely. I added a bit of gold sequin trim at the bottom and a little inked banner (die-cut with the Banners Framelits) so that whoever is giving the wine bottle can sign his/her name.
The idea to make wine tags came after seeing some online and having a discussion with my coworker at the office who had ordered some little 3" x 3" gift cards from me. She likes tying them to her hostess gifts and such so she can sign her name and the hostess knows who the gift is from. Knowing she was using the card for that purpose, I mentioned I had seen those wine tags and wanted to try out making some and she told me she definitely wanted to buy some from me if I ever got into production mode. She didn't need them urgently, so I focused on replenishing my regular occasion card stash first after the Holidays were over but now I'm planning on making a few wine tags here and there when I have paper scraps leftover from projects, the same way I usually make a card when I finish a scrapbook page. I'm really happy with how this one turned out, so I'm looking forward to coming up with more!
