I'm away on my trip but I thought I would share this project and the tutorial I made for Crafter's Companion. It is getting to be "that time of year" when everyone is going to holiday parties and what should a nice guest do?? You should take a hostess gift! I like to take a bottle of wine to give to the hostess and these bottle tags are the perfect thing to dress up a bottle of wine. They are SUPER EASY to make.
1. I start by cutting out a piece of card stock or pattern paper 3" x 8". You can use whatever size works best for the bottle you are working on but for purposes of this tutorial we will use 3" x 8" as our measurement. Using a corner rounder, round each corner.
2. Score a line about 2 inches down one end and fold over. While it is folded over round the corners. You will be cutting through both pieces of paper.
3. Punch a hole in the folded side. I used a 1 1/2" circle punch.
That's it. Now you just have to decorate it. I decided to make this after getting my new S.W.A.L.K. stamp set -You Deserve a Treat. And let me tell you, I am seeing a million uses for this stamp set! It was a perfect accompaniment to this project. I plan to give it to my girlfriend to show her how much I appreciate all that she does for me. But you could make up a few of these hanging bottle tags to have on hand for the next time you need to take a gift with you.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. And I hope you get a chance to make a few of these bottle tags.
I also wanted to remind you that there is a fun "Fall" challenge going on over at Sketches4all this week. There are a couple of great prizes so you might want to check it out!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
