Festive Flurry Wine Bottle Tag

DSCN3894Hi Everyone! Ready to put the happy in Happy Holidays! :) Make a last minute wine bottle tag or make one to take to a New Year's Eve party! Really any winter party would work with this snowflake tag. The snowflake was made using instructions from my online class (still available - keep reading for more info below). I made several so this one was on hand and ready to use! Since so many of you took the class (THANKS!) you may have some spares too!

DSCN3896I am sooo not a wine connoisseur. All I know is I like what I like and this is a bubbly moscato that I enjoy AND I like its bottle design! PLUS - it's blue and wintery like my tag. Tags are such a quick and easy way to dress up a bottle of wine or sparkling grape juice.

DSCN3892The tag is made with the following:

Sky Blue Cardstock - 8-1/2" x 3"scored along the 8-1/2" side (long side) at 3"
Smokey Slate Cardstock - 5-1/4" x 2-3/4"
Winter Frost Designer Paper - 5" x 2-1/2"
Festive Flurry Stamp Set
Festive Flurry Framelits Die Set (Can purchase as bundle and save 15%!)
Frosted Finishes Embellishment
Silver Glimmer Paper - punch out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch THEN punch the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch around the circle to make the glimmer accent.
White Vellum Paper
White Embossing Powder
Silver Embossing Powder

How to make - Make layered snowflake - add embellishment in center.
Punch hole in the 3"x 3" section - adhere glimmer scallop accent around it. Adhere laying paper to the bottom part of the tag and add snowflake.

HEADS UP! there will be NEW CLEARANCE RACK items added on December 27th.

Enjoy making the tags and

Mini Coffee Cup Gifts

DSCN3873Hi Everyone! I have been having fun with these mini coffee cups and lids! They are perfect for gift giving one K-cup of someone's favorite beverage or fill with candy or a little gift.

DSCN3875I spied this from a Facebook Stampin' UP! group I below too from creator Wendy Weixler. Loved this so much I had to order these cups in to make with my team at our November meeting. My Designer Paper Dolls teammates that live elsewhere were sent a 4 pack of cups (along with a few other little treats from me) last week to create theirs!

DSCN3876When I say mini...I mean mini LOL as you can see from the photo above, they are only about 2"!

Here's a template I found from another demonstrator you can use to trace on your favorite Designer Paper  Download Mini-Coffee-Cup-Template

Here's the site I found the mini cups on

http://www.webstaurantstore.com/

Each mini coffee cup rests in its own box. Boxes are adhered together and you can cut a backing/handle to size. To make the box:
5-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock scored at 1-1/2" all sides. Fold up sides and adhere side-by-side.

Tip! To make a 4-pack holder, add 2 more on the other side of the handle!
Decorate as desired!
