A project for the day after the party.....

Hi there! A little note before I get started:
Excuse me if this post sounds a little off. I have had a half a bottle of Champagne to myself. Of course a great project came out of this so just bear with me! ;o)Isn't this just the cutest??

Day after the party:
Step one: Find the discarded cork from the wine or Champagne. If needed, shave the bottom so that it lays flat.

Step two: Create little things to adorn your cork. In this case I used a flower that I made using the new Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge and colored the flowers on my Imagine using the Nursery Tails Cartridge. I added a little ink to the edges for some dimension. I also used a word, "smile," from a chipboard sticker set.
To the back of these items I attached a piece of wire. Using my paper piercing tool, (ouch,) I poked 3 holes in the cork and put in the wired objects.

Step three: Tie a cute little bow around the the cork, and voila! DONE!! Isn't just too cute.

I think this this would make a nice little present topper, or a teacher gift. Something the kids could make for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, a birthday! You could add a little photo to put on your desk at work......the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for stopping by!
