CSAYL Taggy Challenge

Happy Friday, everyone!  It's time for this weeks Christmas Stampin' challenge, and this weeks challenge is "Taggy".  Use any Christmas stamps you have and create a tag.  Be sure to visit the CSAYL blog and post a link to your tag so you are entered to win this weeks prize! 

For my tag, I made this cute wine bottle tag...


The base of my tag is made from one of the papers in the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday 6x6 pad.  I cut a small strip of red to go across the bottom and embossed it with my Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug).  I stamped my sentiment on some white cardstock in black ink, and just trimmed it out with scissors.  It is mounted on some dimensional foam dots, to make it pop out.

QUICK TIP:  To make my circle to go over the top of a wine bottle, I traced a lid from a 2 Liter bottle of soda.  If you have a circle punch that is a good size to go over a wine bottle, you can use that, but the bottle cap works if you don't.  Once you trace it where you want it, just pierce the center with the tip of your scissors and trim it out. 

Once I had my hole cut, I laid the tag on my scoring board and scored a line for the fold.

These are so much fun to make, and such a cute alternative to the wine bags!

Happy Stampin',
