An Uneventful Journey of Joy

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I were travelling to the great city of the money changers, where all the tax collectors resided. We were off to celebrate the Winter Festival at the estate of our Uncle, a renowned accountant of the realm. Before we left the Guild Hall, I dashed up to the crafting chambers and quickly put together a gift to present to our gracious hosts.

This wine tag was created for The Inked Stamper design team and was based on this inspiration photo.
This tag has two job classes and acts as both a wine tag and a gift card holder. I didn’t have a gift card at home, so made a stand-in for demonstrative purposes. On the block letters, I used a snow pen marker and some Iced Stickles.
To create the pocket, I simply folded the piece around the main panel and glued it all together. The whole piece was then adhered to the wine tag base. The paper cut to 7.75” x 3.75” and scored at 2.5”. The piece for the pocket was cut to 2.5” x 4.25” and then scored a quarter of an inch on each side to create the flaps to wrap around the main panel of patterned paper. I wanted the pocket a little bigger so more of that great deer paper would be showing, but didn’t want the gift card drowning in the pocket, so when gluing it together I put glue on the entire bottom half (1.25”) so the gift card could stick out the top.

This tag will pull double duty in the following challenges:

The journey to the great city of the money changers was surprisingly uneventful. Angela and I arrived just in time to partake in the great feast of our ancestors consisting of the traditional twelve meatless dishes. We were sent home with a great many leftovers, which we loaded onto the horses in preparation for the ride back to the Guild Hall. ‘Tis the season of the feast.
