Inspired by this fabulously festive photo from Paper Smooches (below), I decorated a six-pack of beer and used the Paper Smooches Flag Tags dies cut to create a beer bottle tag.

The beer bottle tag was created by cutting a piece of MME pattered paper (cardstock weight) just over two inches wide and just over seven inches long, and scoring and folding it so one side is just over five inches, and the other side is just over two inches long. This paper was placed in the largest Flag Tag die, with the fold just inside the top flat edge of the die, so that when it goes through the die cutter, the folded end remains attached. A one inch hole was then punched in the shorter end of the beer bottle tag and the corners rounded, so this folded flap can be used to hang the tag from the bottleneck. The Paper Smooches Enchanted Elves reindeer was stamped on some old Mambi woodgrain paper, which had been glued to a piece of cardstock for extra strength when fussy cutting. A red Kaisercraft rhinestone was then added for his nose, and a googly eye. The Paper Smooches Christmas Words sentiment was cut from two shades of green papers and the darker green words were set into the negative space left in the lighter green paper, leaving a bit of the background stripes to peek through. The lighter green paper was die cut using the medium sized Flag Tags die, and this was scored and folded and adhered around the beer bottle tag. The reindeer was then pop dotted onto the beer bottle tag. The beer bottle holder was then decorated using Crate Paper - to make it look like a wooden crate of beer LOL! Paper Smooches Ponsettia holly die cuts were used to create the holly, which was pop-dotted over the gingham ribbon.
