Wine Bottle Shaker Gift Tag | MFT Stamps - Cheers Die-Namics

Cheers to You!

Today's post is a special shaker gift tag designed to hang around a wine bottle. With the holiday season fast approaching, I needed a few tags ready to pair with my hostess gifts! This was pretty easy to put together (after I created the tag in the Cricut Design Space!) I used a simple copyright-free wine glass silhouette SVG I found on the internet as my starting point and created a few extra layers in order to convert it into the pieces needed to assemble the shaker. The basic shapes used for this tag are shown below and here are the # of die cuts needed for each color:

3 - Yellow Ringed Base - Glued together and Colored with Distress Oxides/Metallic Watercolors
1 - Rose Wine Base - Blended with Distress Oxide Inks and spattered with metallic watercolors
1 - Green Shaker Base 
4 - Black Glass Outline - Only the top die cut was blended with Distress Oxide Inks and spattered with metallic watercolors

If you have an electronic die cutting machine, here is a B&W version that you can copy/save as a JPG and then upload to create this shaker tag:

The smaller wine base die was glued into the correct place on the green base and I adhered a piece of acetate behind the the opening of the top black die cut with Scor-tape. I glued the remaining three black die cuts together and adhered them behind the acetate. This gave me a good stability for the shaker and enough depth for the filler pieces. I used really narrow pieces of double-thick foam tape around the back of the acetate and down the stem of the glass. I ran my anti-static powder tool around the foam tape just at the top to keep my filler from sticking to its adhesive residue. Then I added my shaker bits onto the wine base area and carefully placed the acetate piece on top, pressing down firmly so that the entire unit was adhered together. I scored the yellow ringed base along the line shown above and glued the shaker to it. Depending on the weight of your card stock, you may not need quite as many die layers but I like to overcompensate a bit just to make sure the final shaker isn't too flimsy.

Using MFT's "Cheers" die, I cut multiples from both the white and black card stock - the die cuts were glued/stacked together with the black stack slightly offset from the white in order to give it a shadow effect and adhered to the front of the tag. There is plenty of room on the back to write your sentiment or just a simple "To:/From:" would also work! I really like the way this tag looks on the bottle itself! 

I am entering this project into the challenge over at the current Cut It Up! Challenge Blog #184 - Tags, Bags or Boxes.
