The card above, which I first January 4, 2018, showcases the Bubble Over bundle with a few snips of your scissors to alter the die cut bottles to make glasses too.
Both champagne & wine bottles have straight necks, therefore cutting the bump off the beer/soda shape will quickly change your die cut to resemble these bottles instead.
Who knew that a glass could be created with your die cut bottles? Me! Yes, I really do try to figure out multiple ways to use the products I purchase. Versatile products will be used more and I can get more bang for my spending dollars.
So here is how it is done:
I’ve shown how to create the glasses from both sizes of bottles, but I prefer (& the example shown shows) creating the glass from the smaller bottle die & using the large die for the bottle itself. Again, I just wanted to give you options.
In the diagrams below you can see how the bottle appears when die Cut, the black lines indicate the cut-away needed to create the straight neck and the other dies shown are used to assemble the bottle. *Note: colors below are just samples, My champagne bottle usedGarden Green, Whisper White, Champagne Foil,Gold Foil, Silver Foil, Early Espresso, and Cherry Cobbler.
In this next diagram you can also see how the straw was used for the stripes throughout the piece (trimming edges, of course) ,the label cuts needed to create the label, & the stacking of small circles for the seal.
The hardest part of these glasses is hiding the adhesive. If you just put adhesive on the foil sheet to attach to the window sheet glass you can also use vellum for a bit frostier look) you will get a mess! This is really the reason for the heart on the stand alone glass and the partial tuck behind the bottle on the second glass. Under that heart and in the area of the tuck is where my tiny dot of the tombo mono adhesive went.
*Another note: Foil paper picks up dents from your fingernails, so be more careful than I apparently was.
The Labeller Alphabet is small and mighty! It provided the asterisk for the seal and the numbers. I encourage you to think about this set. It is very useful for creating your own titles on both cards & scrapbook pages.
And finally, in addition to the Wood Textures DSP stack from the annual catalog (cut @ 4” x 1.75”) the Designer paper used was this gorgeous Petal Passion DSP. I used that one on the top far right and lightly colored the paper with the Light Crumb Cake Blends marker. This paper colors so nicely, making it perfect for almost any project.
If there are any questions about this project or the products used, please feel free to leave them in the comments. I’ll be certain to respond.
I hope you give these ideas a try.
