Sip Sip Hooray Bottle Tags

Tis the season for hostess gifts and lots of them! Stock up now on a few bottles of wine or sparkling cider or one of my personal faves… the sparkling lemonades from Trader Joes (adults and kids both love it and it’s always nice to have plenty of non-alcoholic beverage choices to offer) and have them on hand for hostess gifts. Slip one of these Sip Sip Hooray Bottle Tags around the neck and kick it up a notch!

Dress up your hostess gift with these Sip Sip Hooray! bottle tags

Supplies:

  • 1″ x 2″ board
  • saw
  • hand drill
  • sand paper
  • white and grey paint *I used Rustoelum’s Chalky Finish paint in
  • gold vinyl
  • transfer tape
  • craft cutter *I used my Cricut Explore
  • gold cord

 

 

 

Take the 1″ x 2″ measure out 3″ blocks and mark them for cutting.

A few cuts with the chop saw and you’ll have a stack of blocks ready to have holes drilled in them.

Using a quarter inch drill bit, drill a hole through the side of the bottle tag.

After the holes drilled, it’s time to sand! I actually really like sanding, there is something so gratifying about it!

Paint the bottle tags with grey or white and allow them to dry.

DIY Summertime T-ShirtEvery summer Will Smith’s Summertime automatically starts playing in my head. Summer, summer, summertime… I recently introduced the boys to this summer jam and they loved it! So when I saw Cricut’s new summer line of iron-on vinyl I had to make some Summertime T-shirts!

Summertime Tshirt Cricut Design Space

I started out by typing out the beginning lines of the song in the Cricut Design Space™. {I used the font Bebes Neue} Make sure you click the mirror image box when cutting iron-on. Place the iron-on vinyl onto the StandardGrip Mat, turn the dial to Iron-on; follow the prompts; and cut out the vinyl.

Weed the excess vinyl from around the song lyrics and arrange them onto the front of the t-shirt. Place a towel over the top of the of the vinyl and firmly iron over the top of the covered vinyl.
