Introducing Tag Sale #5 Die

Hello all and welcome to day two of the Papertrey Ink October Countdown! Yesterday I brought you the first peek at the new Wine Bottle Tag Die. Today I bring you another first peek, this time of my other die design for the month... Tag Sale 5. Both will be available for purchase at Papertrey Ink, beginning October 15th.

For today's projects I'm pairing the Wine Bottle Tag die with the Tag Sale 5 die to show you another use for the Wine Bottle Tag die...

These are door knob hangers. I've made these two for my niece and nephew to adorn their bedroom doors, but these door knob hangers can be created for many other occasions as well. How about a "Quite, Baby Sleeping" for a baby shower, "Keep Out" for a teen Birthday, or "Do Not Disturb" for a graduate headed off to college?Here's a look at the new Tag Sale 5 die, it measures 3 3/4" x 2" and it coordinates perfectly with the Wine Bottle Tag die.To create these hangers simply die cut the Wine Bottle Tag from cardstock, cut a slit through the loop at the top of the tag (click on the first picture in this blog post for a closer look), decorate and slip onto a door knob. (Please note: In yesterdays post I forgot to post the diameter of the circle at the top of the Wine Bottle Tag die, it measures 1 3/4") For my Niece's, I die cut the Wine Bottle Tag from kraft and the Tag Sale 5 from Rustic White. Die cut a Signature Series: Butterfly from the Tag Sale 5 die cut, stamped with her name (using Simple Alphabet) and flourish (using Gratitude Journal). Tied the tag with ribbon and Baker's twine and attached. Then embellished with a die cut Love Lives Here butterfly (which I embossed with Mehndi Medallion impression plate) and a button. For my Nephew's, I die cut the Wine Bottle Tag from Soft Stone cardstock and stamped with Background Basics: Houndstooth in Smoky Shadow.Die cut a Tag Sale 5 from white cardstock, stamped with a few images from Boy Basic: Rock On and his name. Die cut, stamped and attached a two toned guitar. Embellished with a tab of True Black ribbon and a button and then attached the tag.

Well, that is it from me today, but be sure to join me during the entire Papertrey Ink Countdown for more ideas and uses for these two dies. I hope you've enjoyed today peek and as usual, I'd love to know what you think. So please share!
