Wine Cards April 1, 2011

Filed under: Cards,Crafts,HOME — Sharon @ 2:53 pm

The Cricut that I have has cutting sheets that hold only paper up to 6inches across so when you use  a standard 8.5 X 11 you have to cut off a strip of about 2 inches and you get a ton of paper that is wasted or if you save it as scraps you get a drawer full of 2 inch paper strips so I came up with this awesome solution to my paper problem!   I cut a hole in the top at 1 1/4 inches.   

and I made these super cute and very useful Wine Cards Hangers!   The sentiment if from Papertrey Ink “Mixed Messages” collection.  ~For a Gracious Hostess~

I think it came out adorable so I made another one and heat embossed  “Celebrate” across a 2 inch cut out from ” Summer in Paris” Cartridge

I think this would also make a cute little book mark too!

You could really use these for any occasion and I have a lot of sentiments to go with it.  Happy birthday! Happy Retirement! Enjoy the Moment! Ohhh so many ideas! 

I need to make more of these ASAP!  So easy and the paper saving is an added bonus!

    What a great idea for a memorable gift. You could also make a cute little gift basket by making the bookmark with a ribbon loop on top, hanging that on the wine, and gifting a great book, bottle of wine, and the bookmark. Wish we lived closer…. I would LOVE to craft it up with you. Are you accepting challenges? I have an idea for ya….

      I love the gift basket idea! I was kind of thinking along that line. “Good Wine, Good Book, Good Life”
