Downline Project

At our last downline meeting Nov. 5 we made a cute little wine bottle tag for gift giving.  Possibly a hostess gift for the Thanksgiving holiday.  You could also use it to hang on your bottles for a tasting with information on the bouquet, undertones, etc. of the wine(s) you are serving.

I started by using the Big Shot to die cut a cute little tag from the Two Tags die.  Then to punch the hole on it and have it centered, we used a mask punched out of a post it note to stick on and center and help punch the circle out of the middle.  Then scored right below the hole, to allow for hanging.

Place post-it mask in middle of the top of the tag.
Voila - a hole punched out perfectly in the center of the tag top.
Next we colored our Fall leaves by stamping and adding color with sponges and then cutting them out.  Once they were done and added to the tag it was ready to put on the bottle for presentation.

And then we had a doorprize drawing for the bottle of Sweet Red Table wine and the tag topper.  Karen was our lucky winner.

Hope you enjoyed today's project.  If you ever make a project using my blog as inspiration, please send me a picture - I'll be sure to post and link back to your blog.  Thanks for stopping by.  ~Maureen

This is such a cute idea and I really like the tip of using a punched out mask to center the opening. Thanks for blessing my day and inspiring my art. :)
