A little thumbthing to hang on a bottle

Welcome to Day 2 of "Hambo Week" at Midnight Scramper!
With Christmas just around the corner - eeeek! - I decided to use Monica's challenge to get at least one holiday project done.

This is a wine bottle hanger and you can get 3 of them out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock.
Here's how I did it:

Cut a strip of cardstock to 2 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Score it at 2 1/2".
Then just punch a whole to fit over the neck of the bottle.

Couldn't be easier.

Here's how I made the velvet antlers on my reindeer:
First I drew them out with my Tombo multi-adhesive. Then I poured my Doodlebug velvet flock on top of the glue and gently pressed it in with the lid of the bottle.
After letting it sit for a moment, I tapped off the excess.
Don't forget to use promo code "ScramperStalker" when you make a purchase at Hambo this week. You'll get 15% off your order just for being a loyal reader!

Remember this box I made for my class this past weekend? I made another one using Hambo stamps that I'll be sharing with you tomorrow, along with the template.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such a great idea MacKenzie! I'll have to try using flocking some day, because yours always looks so cute!
