ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

For You... Trendy Twine DT post

Hello my Crafty Friends and welcome to another design team post for Trendy Twine! Have you seen all the amazing projects that have been posted this week by all the designers. We are showcasing Krazy for Kraft twine and I'm blown away at the creativity that is on the TT blog.

Today my project is all about gifting bottled items. Sometimes it's just easier to buy a few bottles of soap, lotion, even wine, beer or the hard stuff, then hand them out as gifts. Well, these fun bottle sleeves or tags are a great way to make the gift feel special without having to throw it in a bag or wrap it strangely with wrapping paper.

Project Recipe:
My Creative Time: Lollipop Holder die, 
Stitched and Scalloped circle dies and stamp set
Martha Stewart tag punch
Cricut Cuttlebug embossing folder
Paper Crimper and a white button

To make this bottle sleeve I first cut out the Lollipop holder and embossed it. I then cut out a circle big enough to go over the bottle top and created the layers for the front. I added a tiny tag that says "For You", a button and some twine and this gift is ready to go. 

I hope you have a change to stop by Trendy Twines blog to join in on our monthly challenge, get inspired and enter to win some amazing twine! 

Have a great day,

  3. What a fun way to dress up a gift, love your creativity with this.  The embossing looks fabulous too!

  4. This is so cute.  Love how you turned that holder upside down so you can still see the design of the bottle.  Awesome job.

  5. I love this idea. I think it jazzes up any gift like that. Great job!!

    Yvonne, this is so pretty.  What a great topper for any gift.  I would just stare at your bottle sleeve and ignore the bottle!
