Bottle Tag

'Tis the season for bringing wine to the hostess of your holiday party and what better way to present it than with a handmade tag draped around the neck of the bottle.

I used a long scalloped rectangle nestie for my tag. I cut out 1 layer of chipboard and two layers of BasicGrey paper to cover the front and back of the chipboard layer. The front was stamped with SU Lace Snowflakes in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then I used my crop-o-dile to add eyelets to the top for threading my wire through. Before attaching the handle to the main tag, I added the cheers tag. The verse is from Papertrey Ink and stamped on white with more Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blue border was drawn on with a Stampin Write marker. The cuttlebug snowflakes were made out of chipboard and painted with SnowCap Ranger Paint Dabber. Once they were dry, glitter and a jewel were added.

I think the hostess at your next party would be thrilled to receive this.
