Wine tag


What a poor picture! You can’t tell but this is a wine tag. It’s ever so easy to make and dresses up a bottle of wine nicely. I carefully wrote down all the measurements so I could add them to this post, but I have no idea where they are and I’m currently in the middle of a massive craft sort-out!

Basically, it’s a piece of Basic Black cardstock, scored across the width, with a 1 ¾” hole punched in the smaller section. This hole fits perfectly over the neck of a bottle of wine to create a gift tag. This was a teacher gift – teachers love wine!

The flower is made from scraps of Sweet & Sour paper, punched out with the Boho Blossoms punch, held together with a silver brad, dampened and scrunched (ouch! Do this before adding the brad next time!)

  1. This is such a great idea and so elegant! We often take wine to our friends as a hostess gift, but I never thought to make a tag for the bottle! And yes, we teachers do love wine!!
