For Dad...

I have a couple of items to share today...both for my Dad...a wine bottle tag/giftcard holder for his birthday...and a gift tag for his Father's Day present. On the wine bottle tag/giftcard holder...I used a cute Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Mr Fixit' and papers from the 'Here & There' pad by Studio Calico. I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts, and the letters were cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet dies. I cut the hole for the bottle top using one of my Nesties...and created a pocket on the back to hold a giftcard...but I forgot to photograph that...ooops!


I mad e a simple tag to go on his Father's Day present using one of my oldest Penny Black stamps...'Present Pile'...and papers from the same Studio Calico pad. I inked around the edge of the paper using 'Tea Dye' Distress Ink, and 'fussy cut' the chicken image. I used some multicoloured twine (from TK Maxx) to tie around the gift.
