Happy New Year! Bottle Tag

Hi everyone! The new year is fast approaching and that means that many of us will attend a gathering of some sort to celebrate the arrival of 2018. Often a bottle of wine is an easy and appreciated choice for a hostess/host gift. I thought I would create a bottle tag instead of the usual wine bag to make it a little extra special. 

To construct this tag, I started with a piece of black glitter card stock and used a Scalloped Nested Die to cut the bottle neck hole. Then I used the Birch Tree die as the background and slipped the doe and fawn into the trees. The Happy New Year Ornament was cut out of gold card stock and placed on top of a doily from the Nested Stitched Doily set cut out of white holographic paper. For a final touch, I applied some chunky white glitter at the feet of the deer to appear as if they are standing in snow. You could skip this step if you are in a hurry or do not have the glitter on hand.  

This tag was made using the dies shown below but if you do not have these particular designs, use your creativity to decorate your tag in another way. For example, it does not have to say anything about the new year. Instead, you can use a Thanks or other Expression die in combination with other shapes to create your own bottle tag. There are many occasions it could be used for as well. For example, you could decorate it to celebrate a birthday or to congratulate someone for something. 

This tag was surprisingly quick to construct when you let the dies do all the work for you. If you wanted to put more time into it, you could shade the deer and the birch trees but I really wanted to show you could create this without much fuss and still get a great result.
