Happy Holidays! With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I’d share an idea to put sparkle into your gift giving. Using the 3D Foam Trees, I put together a hanger tag that will bring a smile to your recipient instead of a boring wine bag.
Start with a sheet of 3D Foam Trees shapes. I swiped the liner with anti-static powder to control the glittery mess 🙂
Went a little crazy on the glitter – just bought a pack of 18 WONDERFUL COLORS! LOL!! Some have tri-color (just tear the liner ⅓ of the tree, add glitter and repeat two more times to achieve the effect) and others have either silver, teal, yellow, etc.
After I decided which tree to use, I took off its trunk liner and colored it with Stamper’s Big Brush Walnut Brown Pen – I colored two coats (dry between coats).
For the base I cut/embossed Snowflakes View Die #2 (the smallest die size is #1) with red patterned paper and Die #1 with ivory cardstock.
Stamp the sentiments to the ivory die cut. Add the glittered 3D Foam Trees shapes at the bottom of the stamped die cut.
Tip: to remove the shapes from the sheet of 3D Foam trees, I used my Tool ‘N One.
Place 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular in the back and center on the red die cut.
About 1″ from the score line, I cut/embossed Standard Circles LG Die #3 to create an opening for the bottle neck. Then I trimmed about ½” from the circle and rounded all the corners to finish the hanger.
I just had add a little texture to the hanger so I used 3D M-Bossibilities™ European Tapestry Folder. Very lightly mist water on the cardstock to soften the fibers and put it through my Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine for a deep embossing.
Add the tag with 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular onto the hanger – you are ready to give a bottle of wine with a little sparkle for the holidays!
