Jen at I Heart Organizing is hosting her monthly High/Low Organizing Challenge and I was inspired to join in(it starts Friday if you want to join in too). This month's challenge is storage and I'm focusing on beverage storage.
These Ballard Designs beverage tags have been calling my name since I first spotted them in their catalogue. You know I love a good party and having some rustic, yet classy beverage tags for our beverages would make my parties even
But at $15 for a set of 6 (plus shipping), they were a bit steep for my budget.
After making my Calligraphy Eggs for Easter with this rub-on transfer kit from Grafix, I figured I could use the same technique for my tag impostors.
I picked a font that I liked and did a practice print on a sheet of paper. The images had to be printed in reverse onto the matte side of the transfer film. I found the wooden tags at Michael's for .29c each.
I followed the directions in the kit to create the design and applied it sticky side down to the tag. I used that wonky craft stick to gently rub the top of the design and bond it to the surface. (It broke midway through my project.)
Then I peeled off the backing and I had my first tag.
The process went pretty quickly and it was much easier on a flat surface than on an fragile, hollow egg.
I added some twine to each one.
I had a few left over and made some coffee beverage tags too.
Since I already had the twine and transfer paper, the whole kit and kaboodle only set me back about $2.50. Now I just need a reason to throw a party!
