Make the best of everything!: Brewed and Puffy Painted with Love!

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Brewed and Puffy Painted with Love!


Lets be realistic here. Valentines day is a women's holiday ( and I am not saying we don't deserve to get flowers and chocolates)  But lets not pretend that our guys will be wanting chocolate, flowers or a stuffed teddy bear.

 My husband Greg is not a big drinker, but he does like to open a nice Pale ale or amber ale every so often. 

 I have decided I am going to purchase a 6 pack of unique beers for him and put these labels on them for Valentines day.  ( Please don't judge by the Miller light in the pictures. I found these in the garage. Used just for pictures only!. I do plan on getting him some higher quality beer)


Here is how I made these

1) Cut pieces of Card stock into an appropriate size for labels.
2) Made up some clever beer slogans and printed them out also on card stock.
3) Decorated each label with Puffy Paint, stickers and craft foam
Just as a side note. If you are not well acquainted with Puffy Paint, then I HIGHLY recommend you introduce yourself.  Puffy Paint can put the finishing touch needed to ANY and I mean ANY craft! ( If you keep reading my blog then you will know what I mean.)  

When I was a Girl Scout leader, I was told by one of my girls that I changed her life because I introduced her to Puffy Paint! Now that's something!



Here is a close up of each beer label.





( My husband does not need beer to be happy. But I just think its funny)






( used for a Honey Weiss)


Well I hope you enjoy these! I am sure My Hubby will.

What a creative idea! I'm definitely doing this. Can you share how you fastened the craft foam in the bottles? Did you glue them down or did you just make a sleeve?

I glued the craft foam together in the back using my hot glue gun. Ah the trusty hot glue gun. The best $3.97 I ever spent!
