Summer Visitors- Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine

Hey Crafty Friends-

Today is my turn on the Trendy Twine Blog! I'm sticking with the beach theme we've had going this month and decided to do a little something for my house guests popping by on their summer vacation. Why not make them feel like they are staying in fancy hotel and provide them a little luxury. This way they don't have to use my kids' Hello Kitty soap ha ha.

I created a beach inspired hang tag to dress up a bottle of shower gel/bubble bath and attached it using this months featured color Krazy for Kraft. I also rolled up a washcloth and tied a double bow around it for fun! Cute idea huh? Love is in the details and any summer guest would love to see this waiting for them on the bathroom counter.

To make the tag I cut a square piece of craft cardstock at 2 1/2" and rounded the corners. I inked the edges with Picked Raspberry Tim Holtz Distress Pad. The shell is cut from the Crate a Critter Cricut cartridge at 2", inked in the Picked Raspberry, diamond stickled, and a double Krazy for Kraft twine bow is glued on. I attached it to the tag using foam dots. The sentiment is stamped in black and pink gems are added to each side. The entire tag is then edged in diamond stickles. I twisted a double strand if Kraft twine around the cap, crisscrossed it and glued it down with glue dots. I then attached the tag to the twine and the bottle for extra security. I rolled up a washcloth and tied a double bow around it and set everything up on the bathroom counter for my guests.
