Wine Bottle Tags

A super simple idea for a gift! Add a wine bottle tag!  Imagine popping around to dinner with a friend and taking a bottle of wine.  Adding a wine tag adds a personal touch.    It makes it oh so easy to crack open that bottle of wine….AND you can sit and enjoy the tag while you finish the bottle together!

I used the “Two Tags die”  (page 159) with  my bigshot to cut out the tag.  I then used a circle punch so I could fit the tag over the neck of the wine bottle.  It is probably difficult to see the actual tag in the following photo- largely because I took the photo on my iphone (and I was in a hurry) but also because the colours blend so nicely into the colours on the wine bottle- but that’s the idea, right?

The tag could be decorated in any number of ways but I wanted to add a flower.  I simply punched out several shapes from a piece of blushing bride cardstock using my scallop circle punch.  I scrunched and distressed the pieces to break down the fibres.  The ‘blushing bride‘ colour is a lovely dusty pink but it is not quite the colour of the pink on this bottle of “Vintage Bella” so I spritzed the cardstock with Silver Foil Smooth Spritz (page 147)  Not only did this bring the colour closer to the pink colour in the label and add a touch of sparkle- but it also made the cardstock moist enough to scrunch and shape into a flower.  The smooth spritz didn’t take long to dry and helped to keep the shape of the flower.  A lovely vintage brad was all that was needed to hold the pieces together
