As you may have seen on one of my earlier posts, I made a card for my friend's 40th birthday, the surprise party is today and she doesn't suspect a thing Mwahahahaha! I spotted that a lovely lady called Gina had made a bottle neck hanger and thought it would be a nice idea to go round the neck of the pink bottle of champagne I am giving as a gift. I missed the little link at the bottom of her blog post which gave a tutorial of how to make one, so I spent most of yesterday evening trying to fashion one out of some pink card. Doh!
I've used the same stamp Ching Chou Kuik's It's My Birthday stamp as I used for the card so the gift matches nicely, added a couple of embellishments like a sparkly cake, a flower and a pink skeleton leaf.
Anyway, at least I know how to make one from scratch and have made it big enough to be able to fit some nice goodies in that any self-respecting 40 year old woman will need... you know, chocolate, Resolve (for the morning after the party) and anti-aging cream hehe
I have my sister's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks and she likes a tipple too so I already know what I can make for her now.
