summer of fun

Welcome papermakers!

Summer is in full swing which means backyard picnics, pool parties and family cook outs! Why not dress up the beverages you bring to the party!



I save all of the hand made paper scraps from my projects. They are perfect for smaller projects such as these tags!

So grab some scraps and dies and let's get started.




These summer theme dies from Taylored Expressions were just perfect for this project!

 The handmade paper cut quickly and easily.




I started by painting backgrounds on watercolor paper.  The sand was created using texture paste and mist.  I created a different summer theme on each tag.I added watercolors to some of the pieces and finished with a quote and twine. This is a fun project which you could even have your children help with! You could make these to celebrate any theme - a birthday, Father's Day, an anniversary or summer as I did.

Add one to each bottle and you are ready to go!
