On the Eleventh day of Christmas...

Hello, Imaginisce-tas! It's Robyn here with a fun and festive gift idea for the wine lover on your list.

Today, we're using the Snag 'Em Stamps from the Cottage Christmas collection and shrink plastic (yep, that's right -- the good ol' Shrinky Dinks we loved from childhood) to create a set of holiday wine tags!



Ready to have some fun?

First, stamp your images onto shrink plastic with permanent ink (I'm using Staz-on) and let it dry.


Color them in with colored pencils or art markers. I'm using the Tombow markers with the fine tip, and they work great!


Cut around the shapes, BUT...be sure to leave some room to punch a hole. I used my Crop-a-Dile on the larger hole setting to make sure the hole would be big enough after the "shrinkage." Then follow the directions in the shrink plastic packaging to bake them down to size.


Once they're tiny (and cool), attach two jump rings. I used a medium to go through the thickness of the shrinky-dink, then a smaller one linked onto that to thread onto the hoop.


Next you'll need some beads and some wire hoops (which you can find in the jewelry section of your favorite craft store -- the hoops are actually earrings, but they work perfectly for wine stems). The package I have is assorted sizes, but the size I'm using is about 1-1/4" inch in diameter. You could definitely go larger, but probably not any smaller. Thread a few beads onto the hoop, then put on the shrinky dink, then a few more beads.


If you want to mix it up a bit, you can add in a Snowflake Crystal in place of the shrinky dink. I used the two smallest crystals to extend the size of my set to six tags.

And you end up with a set that looks like this:


As you can see, I also altered a small tin to store them in. I just cut some scraps of the Cottage Christmas papers to size and used Mod-Podge to adhere them smoothly to the metal. Then I embellished with chipboard shapes and ribbon.


Add in a bottle of wine with a matching gift tag, and you have a perfect little gift set for a wine lover or the hostess-with-the-mostess!


Do I have an amazing giveaway for you today???? Oh YES, I certainly do! Today, we're giving away the entire Cottage Christmas collection PLUS a set of the Roly Rosies PLUS the petal roller tool! Now that is a gift that keeps on giving!

Here's how to enter:
1. Follow my blog and leave a comment to say you've stopped by.
2. Hop over to Imaginisce on facebook and leave a comment on what you're wishing for this holiday.
3. Follow the Imaginisce blog and leave a comment for each of the entry tasks you've completed
(The more tasks you complete, the more chances you have to win.)

I hope you've enjoyed the ideas from Imaginisce over the past 11 days as much as I have. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the last of our 12 Days of Christmas ideas! Happy holidays to all!

Robyn

Love it! I actually had a workshop making them last week. But we used the Imaginisce present stamp so they could make 6 with the same image and colour all a different colour. But love how you have extended on the idea and included a little box to store them in.

Wendy Crowe said...

This is the CUTEST idea for a gift! Even teachers would love this! And the decorated tin for them is awesome! Now to find Shrinky Dinks! :):)):)

I so love this idea. I haven't played with shrinky dinks since I was a kid. I am sure that my girls would love to do this also. Will have to get some shrinky dinks plastic. Also love the little tin box to hold them in.
