Wine gift tag using Tim's Framelits tag collection

Hello, its Jane here and I am popping in to share a really quick, simple thank you wine bottle gift tag I made for a friend. 
I recently bought the Tim Holtz Framelits tag collection from the shop. I have had my eye on it for ages and took the plunge. This is the opened pack, you get lots of sizes for your money and a great bookplate die too.

 I make lots of large inky backgrounds and often have pieces left over which I thought I could make into tag bases.
Here is one such piece, just mopping up after using the amazing Distress Oxides.

I used the largest die to cut my tag...it's the size of a normal #8 tag







I used a scallop circle to cut the opening for the bottle neck.










I then used my mini Tim heart stencil, I love these smaller versions.














I added hearts using broken china and worn lipstick oxides. I also added some vintage photo to the edges.









I used another of the dies in the set to cut a book plate label. I stamped and embossed "thank you" in blue and added 2 shiny brads.

And here is my finished wine gift tag...simples πŸ˜‰

The recipient loved it ...and the wine too πŸ˜‹It was a thank you to my friend for looking after our cat when our grandson was born 3 weeks ago. If you like baby photos there are lots over on my blog here today
This is really quick and easy way to made a thank you card and pressie all in one go...nothing to wrap up either...win win in my books.

Thanks for stopping by,

Back soon,

Bye for now,

  3. Wow, great idea, I just recently bought this die set which has been on my wish list for a long time.
    Just going to have a play with them now. I have lots of gelli prints I can die cut for the backgrounds.
