Seems holidays creep up on us so quickly lately and I can't help myself when it comes to puttering with a project at the very last minute...lol. Anything that doesn't move around here is fair game in my eyes;)
We'll be celebrating Easter over at my brother & SIL's place and we had this bottle of champagne begging to be opened, sitting on our counter. I decided to make a little tag for it to wish them a 'Happy Spring'.
Several years ago I purchased a couple of list pads from our local Dollar Tree. Who could resist these with little fairy girls on them I asked myself! They have sat in my art room for forever it seems. I couldn't get myself to use them for just grocery lists, they were just too cute. However, she was just begging to be used in some artistic way. With that in mind, I cut out a cream colored bottle tag from a die I purchased from 'My Favorite Things'. I sponged the edges with cotton candy distress ink. Then I glued the little girl image onto a recycled cereal box and fussy cut her out. I mounted her to the tag with foam dots. Then I punched out little butterflies from the same paper she was printed on (sponging the edges lightly too) and some pink flowers from a dollar punch I bought at Michaels awhile ago, randomly gluing them around her. I also attached a piece of lace to the bottom of the tag and added a strip of Washi tape above that . I stamped the 'Happy Spring' from a stamp I had in my stash (I think it's from Hero Arts) and cut the edges with a decorative scissors. I glued that to a scrap and cut it out again, mounting it to the tag with foam dots. I tied a strip of ribbon into a bow (that was part of a child's skirt that I also purchased awhile ago at The Dollar Tree). For a quick project I think it turned out rather sweet. Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and thanks for stopping by:)
