DIY PINK GIN WEDDING FAVOURS WITH FREE PRINTABLE TAGS

If you know me well, you’ll know that when it comes to drinking alcohol I’m pretty dam fussy, as in, I don’t like wine, champagne and I’ll drink spirits as long as you disguise the taste of them with mixers haha However…Over the Christmas holidays I had a breakthrough and tried pink gin! Granted, I had it with lemonade and not soda (sorry gin drinkers!) but I absolutely loved it! And don’t get me started on how pretty it is, I mean, it’s a beautiful shade of pastel pink!

Then this got me thinking, wouldn’t pink gin just make the prettiest wedding favours?! Especially made up all cute in mini bottles, plus guests would surely love to have gin freebies right?! Here’s how to make your own:

YOU WILL NEED:

Pink Gin (we used Gordon’s) // Mini glass bottles (preferably with screw top lids) // Pink spray paint (We used Berry Pink from Rustoleum) // Paper straws (we went for gold) // Gold ribbon // Free printable ‘chin chin’ tags // Hole punch //

STEP 1:

Print off the free printable tags (which you can download here) and cut them out ready, then using your hole punch make small holes in the top of each of the tags so that they can easily thread through your ribbon.

MAKE YOUR OWN FUN SLOGAN SANTA SACK THIS CHRISTMAS!

Since arriving home from Sri Lanka, we’ve been busy getting ready for the holidays. Much of Christmas day this year will be spent visiting our family and friends to exchange gifts. I’ve mentioned how I take extra pride creative gift wrapping before, but this year as I’ll be doing a lot of travelling with gifts I wanted to make sure all my hard wasn’t wasted by just stuffing presents in a boring old carrier bag. So, I decided to be super organised and make my own personalised Santa Sack. I have been desperate to try cutting material with the new Cricut Maker and thought this would a good time to really put it to the test by using everyone’s favourite fabric, FELT!

For as long as I’ve been using the Cricut, you always had to stabilize felt with an iron on stabilizer such as Heat N’ Bond before cutting with a deep cut blade but with the Maker that’s all changed. Now you are able to cut felt using just a strong grip mat and the new rotary blade, so was it really  as simple as that?? It really was!
