Tag you're it !

Good morning - once again it is Friday - wow they come around quick don't they ?!

Well today is a fun Friday as it is also tome to reveal the brand new challenge over at Jellypark friends Friday challenge. This weeks challenge is perfect for getting all those little Christmas gifts ready and those tags made as it is an anything but a card challenge.

I have to admit that I do not make many altered or non card {!} crafty items so I was pretty sure that I would make a tag set for this challenge until, that is, I saw a little tutorial for a wine bottle tag at whiff of joy.

My father in law loves a good bottle of wine and we have got him one as a little extra Christmas gift so I thought this would be perfect.

Can I just tell you I had such fun making this project I got out loads of my messy craft supplies and had a blast !

The base of this tag is actually a peice of scrap thick cardboard, which I knew would come in handy, and I started by painting the edges with my white acrylic paint dabber then sprayed it with some spray and sparkle.

The papers are digi's from the Echo park wintertime set and I have done a little bit of doodling on the edges (told you I had fun !) The 3 paper strips on the main section are also doodled and then i also glittered and glossy accented the edges too - I am sorry that the pic doesn't show the beautiful glimmer but I love the touchable goodness of it !

The super snow fella is, of course, from jellypark you can find him in the store here. He is coloured simply with promarkers and spica glitter pens with some diamond dust added for sparkle !

Anyone who ever recieves a bottle of wine from me from now on will be getting it with one of these - I am converted - they are so much nicer than those bottle bags !
