YIPPEEEEEEE! I actually managed to do something other than a card, lol! Why is it when we're given a brief we automatically set about making a card - well I do anyway! But this week's Dottie's World Challenge got me thinking....... I'd bought a nice bottle of Merlot for my Pa and wanted to do something different than the customary bottle bag, then I remembered that I'd seen a tutorial for a kipper tie a while back and decided to have a go.
Well what great fun! It was actually easy and the result was quite pleasing! Don't you just love George too?! He really makes me laugh - what a poser!! If you fancy using him on one of your Father's Day projects you've got loads of time to get your downloads from here. And if you want to have a go at making a tie like this, you can find the instructions here. The ring which attaches the tie to the bottle is just two circular Nestie die cuts which have been attached and scored to create flexibility.
Here's a slightly closer view of how it all works.......
I hope you can hop over to the challenge blog now for some Father's Day inspiration - the girls have all done such a fab job and there's something for every Dad, young and old!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
