I have to admit that when I started out this project I had no idea where it was headed---I wanted to make a tag to possibly put onto a card base, but then *ding* light went on and I decided to make a house-warming tag for a bottle of wine. The tag could also be used on a gift/gift bag or remove the string and mounted onto a card base.
For the tag I created a little mini scene using paper piecing onto a kraft mailing tag. I added some dimension using a nice big double bow (thank you Bow Easy!!) and stamped the clouds onto felt to make them look puffy.
Even though I didn't have a specific direction with this project right away, it turned out to be my personal favourite of all the things I created for this month's Purple Onion Designs release. Oh, and speaking of POD....I've been asked to join the design team on a full time basis *happy dance*!! Thanks to Michele for this great opportunity :)
Some of the details:
Stamps: Home Sweet Home set from Purple Onion Designs (designed by Stephanie Ackerman)
Ink: Palette Noir (works great for stamping on felt)
Papers: October Afternoon, Lily Bee Designs, kraft mailing tag (office supply store)
Accessories: ribbon from Creative Bags, cotton kitchen string (for tying onto bottle), white craft felt
