The Tim Holtz Sizzix "Apothecary Bottles" die was the main item used to make this tag. The mini glass bottle is from Tim Holtz Mini Corked Vials (Idea-olgy series) and contains newt eggs (aka green glass beads).
So my fellow Hogwarts/Harry Potter fans, when creating these bottles I was thinking of what bottles would possibly be in Professor Snape's Potion 101 class. Please note that these Spider Webs are (of course) 100% organic. Only the finest materials used at Hogwarts!
I used the die to first cut the bottle shapes out of patterned paper. Then I cut them again out of vellum. I glued the vellum onto the paper shapes to give the bottles a frosted bottle look. The die cuts the bottles, labels and corks separately. I used Distress Inks "Vintage Photo" on the edge of the bottles to give them a "been on Professor Snape's shelf for a long time" look.
for this next tag I used the coolest product ever...spider web in a spray can! Okay so it's a type of spray paint but it looks like webbing. I used "spider silver" on black paper. I purchased the paint at Artist and Display. Honestly, once you get this paint you'll want to cover lots of stuff. It's soo fun to work with!
For the final look I didn't want to cover up the background at all (like I did with the apothecary bottles) so I painted a spider on the tag. When the spider was dry I used Glossy Accents to give his body a dimensional look.
