Wine and Dine in Fall Style!

These little tags are so easy to make, yet make an incredible statement!  To create the base for the tag, cut a strip of card stock -- 3 1/2 x 8 1//2" (Cajun Craze used here).  Score at one end at 2 1/4".  I put the bottom end in an embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot to create a bit of fun texture. I used the Houndstooth embossing folder on the first one, and a brand new folder -- Snow Burst -- from the new Holiday Mini catalog that goes live TODAY!  It is another gorgeous folder that is great for wintery stuff as well as anything else!  On the first tag, I inked the Sunflower background with Early Esspresso, More Mustard, and Cajun Craze markers, and then punched out a couple of leaves with my Blossom Petals punch.  The second tag also uses the Blossom Petals punch to create the big flower.  Finally, the French Foliage stamp set for the third tag -- with one leaf high lighted in dazzling Diamonds glitter -- applied using the 2-way glue pen.
To create the hole to go over the bottle top, center the 1 1/4" round punch in the center of the top flap of your tag and punch.  Now, punch another 1 1/4" hole in a scrap of chocolate chip or More Mustard.  Next, center your 1 3/4" round scallop punch OVER the hole punched in the scrap, and punch -- you should now have a scalloped circle with a hole in the middle.  Adhere this over the hole in the top of your tag.
Finish with coordinating ribbon -- here I used the retired 5/8" Old Olive grossgrain ribbon, and 5/8" Early Espresso Satin ribbon. 
To add pizzazz to the sentiments, use colored Sharpies to color the Basic pearls and Basic Rhinestones to match the project.
These are all tags we will make at my next class -- Stamping on Marble Tiles.  See my Events calendar for all the details and to RSVP.
Happy Fall!
