I really don’t know how it got to be December already. Every year at this time I am running a little behind but this year it is worse than normal. We typically give family and friends small useable gifts and I like to make something for each of them. This year’s projects will have to be simple or they will not get done on time. Our family and friends always love to receive gifts that involve food, e.g., interesting vinegar, a small $ coffee gift card, special chocolate or a unique food item. I thought it would be fun to dress up the gifts with simple bottle collars that I could create with my Scrap Girls digital scrapbooking supplies, my Silhouette Cameo and a few traditional crafting supplies. I created two bottle collar templates for you to use.
Digital scrapbooking supplies used:
FREE Templates: (click on each image below then right click and save to your computer)
Scissors , Paper cutter
Paper – double sided matte photo paper
Adhesive – two sided tape, glue dots, dimensional
Embellishments – Gelly Roll Pens, flowers, packages, buttons, silk floral pick, ribbon, fiber
Step 1 – Open the template(s) in your photo editing software.
Step 2 – Attach digital scrapbooking papers and embellishment to your template. Create matching tags and small gift cards as desired.
Step 3 – Open a new 8.5” x 11” document and drag decorated template layers and desired embellishments on to the document to create a print sheet.
Step 4 – Use your Silhouette Cameo to print and cut out the layers of your template (or print and cut the layers with scissors and a paper cutter). See – http://scrapgirls.com/blog/create-a-print-and-cut-card-with-digital-scrapbook-supplies-and-silhouette/.
Step 5 – Add desired traditional embellishments, fibers & ribbon.
Give an iced coffee with a matching paper bag filled with a homemade cookie.
Give an afternoon pick me up drink with a gift card for lunch.
Give a bottle of vinegar or olive oil. Insert a small $ gift card in pocket if desired.
We would love to see how you use your digital scrapbooking supplies to create your own bottle collars. Post them in the Scrap Girls Hybrid Gallery.
Live each day creatively. Happy Holidays,
