Papertrey Ink Wine Bottle Tags

Hello everyone,

Well this week whooshed by before I blinked and I can't believe the weekend is here again! There are lot of friends celebrating things around here and I'd like to share a couple of  tags I made for them. I wanted to join in the the current Tag You're It challenge where Tracey  provided an inspiration picture of some lovely tags added to teacher gifts. Tracey's tags had fishtail bottoms and were attached to gifts rather than being used as an element on a card, so I came up with a similar idea for wine bottle tags

The first one was for some friends who are celebrating the birth of their first Grandchild and I decided to get them some Champagne to 'wet the baby's head' as is the tradition here. Is this a peculiarly British thing or do other countries celebrate in this way I wonder? Anyway, it was an excuse to break out the PTI bottle tag die and I came up with this tag


I saw the greeting somewhere on Pinterest and typed it on the computer, printed it onto patterned paper, and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die to add to the tag. It may be easier to read it in this photo


I extended the tag by cutting the bottom part again in white card and adhered it from behind, to be the place for my 'celebrate' die cut to go. 

The second tag was for a friend who moved house recently and I added it to another bottle of Champagne to take to his housewarming party. This time I wanted a very masculine feel, so I cut the tag from dark gray card and stamped it with a background star stamp using Versamark ink. I used the PTI Uncorked dies and stamps to decorate it.






and finished it off with a few little red starts to add a pop of colour.

I'd also like to play along with

The Male Room challenge - Add a tag

The Mod Squad challenge - I'm tagging you


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  4. These tags are fantastic! I especially love your masculine tag. Love how you separate the wine bottle to add your die-cut sentiment. I am totally copying this idea and using it on a card! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great weekend, Carol!

  6. I am with everyone else. These tags are fantastic. I loved the sentiment on the first one and had never heard of the tradition that you spoke about. First time for everything. The second tag is so very appropriate for a new home. I am so glad that you played in the Mod Squad Challenge with week. Thanks, and I hope to see you again.

  14. Wow these are a great idea. I think I like the black and white one with those little red stars that jump out, although they are both very creative. Thank you for sharing your tags with us at The Male Room this week.
