I know unusual to find me posting at this time of day (well at least I hope it has posted as I'm not at home hopefully I'm making lots of sales at a ladies evening as you read this) So if Mr Blogger has been good and posted I'm taking part in my team mate Jennifer's latest blog event Frosty Festivities.
I've pinched this blurb from her blog to tell you all about what is going on.
On Friday 16th November – Sunday 18th November I will be holding a Blog Event called ‘Frosty Festivities’. Over that weekend there will be posts every hour from 4pm-10pm Friday, and 10am-10pm Saturday and Sunday (GMT), all on the theme of 'Winter' including tips, tutorials, challenges, crafts, a blog hop, and lots of giveaways.
As part of the event she is holding a blog hop which if you are following you will have arrived from
if your not what are you waiting for head over to the first stop of the hop which is
'If you comment on all the blogs in the hop, finishing at Jennifer's blog don't forget to let her know by leaving her a comment you could win a spectacular seasonal prize of Basic Grey Aspen Frost and Carta Bella Winter Fun items, worth over £25! All entries must be received by Monday the 19th of November at 10.59pm GMT. Your next stop along the hop is
For my part in the blog hop I have made a wine bottle tag with a pocket for some little chocolates to add to that boring bottle of wine your going to give as a present at Christmas.
Now these are really easy to make you need a piece of card 7 x 21 cm and another smaller piece 9 x 12cm.
On the larger piece score at 6.5 cm.
On the smaller piece you need to score the 9cm side at 6 & 7.5cm. on the 12cm side you need to score at 1.5, 3, 9 & 10.5 cm.
Take the smaller piece which will become the box on the front of the tag and cut the tabs as the photo above.
Next taking a nestie shape or you could use a circle punch cut a hole out to make it easier to get the chocolates in and out of the box.
I have used a matching nestie in a larger size to shape the bottom of my tag. By placing your tag through you nestie as in the photo above you will only cut the bottom edge.
You will need to cut a hole in the top section of you tag so that it fits over your wine bottle. The decorate your tag either with pretty papers or as I have done stamps.
Stick the pocket together .
Attach the pocket to your tag
Cut a circle frame using 2 different sized nesties.
stick the frame around the whole you cut in the top of the tag.
Decorate the front of the pocket and add chocolates.
Now hop over to Jo.B's blog and see what she's come up with.
