Rest and Relaxation II-Day 8

If you liked yesterday's gift idea, today's can be an extension of it. Once your recipient has received their magazine they'll be in need of somewhere to relax and enjoy their new reading material. Why not include an excuse to indulge in a bubble bath. Any will do and now there seems to be every scent imaginable so you could really cater to that specific someone special. The actual execution of the gift is a no-brainer. The glam is all in the tag.
  • I started by printing the phrase onto Whisper White card stock and trimming it with my paper cutter.
  • Next, I used a stamp with a circular image from the Priceless set. I only wanted to use the inner circle of it so I used my Stampin' Write marker in Bashful Blue to color only that specific circle. Once I had stamped that image randomly onto the tag, I traced over them with my 2-Way Glue Pen. The final step included a sprinkling of the shredded cellophane. (This is the same cellophane I used to cover the smoothfoam ball in Day 6's idea). My hope was to give the illusion of bath bubbles and I was very happy with how it turned out. 
  • I found the perfect remnant of ribbon that had pink shimmery circles on it and tied it around the bottle. A piece of Pretty In Pink taffeta ribbon was used to secure the tag to the larger ribbon through a hole made with my Crop-A-Dile.
