Rockin Robin!

Yesterday i shared with you a cute little robin gift tag. Today i have another project to share with you using the 'Sponge Daubed' robin!!

You know sometimes, no matter how hard you try you can't find a present to suit, so you resort to that bottle of wine - such a versatile gift!!! Well here's a way to make them a little more personal, make a wine bottle gift tag.

For those of you who follow my blog regularly you'll know that i have shared one of these before (click here for instructions on how to make one)  - well here's my christmas take on this project!

The card used for this project is 'Soft Suede'. I layered a piece of 'Very Vanilla' card and you will see that i have used a 'Sponge Dauber' and some 'Soft Suede' ink on the edges. The sentiment is from a retired SU set. The Robin has been punched from 'Very Vanilla' card using the 'Two Step Bird Punch' and i have 'Sponge Daubed' it using 'Early Espresso' and 'Real Red' ink, his wing has been raised using a 'Dimensional. His eye and beak has been drawn in using a 'Basic Black' 'Stampin' Write Marker' and the branches have been crreated from some 'Brights DSP'.

To hang this tag off the bottle, i have punched a '1-3/8" Circle' and bordered it with a 'Scallop Circle'. Here it is serving its intended purpose:

A perfect way to craft what can be a very impersonal gift!

  1. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
