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
