Christmas Hostess Gifts - Day Five Wine Bottle Toppers

Wine Bottle Toppers:

Whenever I visit friends and take wine I like to bring it in a wine bag or box, but on occasion I've been caught short without either.  The easiest solution is to make a Wine Bottle Topper or Tag.  These are so easy to make and you can keep a supply on hand to quickly decorate for the occasion.  

Here's My Wine Topper:

Supplies For Cherry Cobbler Wine Topper:
Card Stock:
Cherry Cobbler
Early Espresso
Whisper White 

Gumball Green
Coastal Cabana
Early Espresso 

1 3/8" Circle Punch
Apothecary Framelits
Oval Framelits
Basic Rhinestones
Dazzling Diamonds
2-way Glue Pen
Big Shot


1.  Cut Cherry Cobbler card stock to 2 7/8”x 8”.

2.  Score at 2 ¼" and use bone folder to crease at score line. 

3.  Cut a piece of Season of Style DSP to 2” x 5” and adhere to middle of Cherry Cobbler piece.

4.  Punch 1 3/8” circle out of top portion of Cherry Cobbler card stock.

5.  Using the large die from the Apothecary Framelit set cut a 3 x 5" piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  Then place the rectangular framelit in the center of this piece and run through the big shot.

6.  Stamp a scene using the images from the Warmth and Wonder 7 piece hostess stamp on a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White Card stock.  Lay the rectangular die over the stamped image to make sure the image will be visible through the window frame you created in step 5.  Finish details on picture and then adhere behind the Early Espresso frame.  Mount finished frame to center of dsp piece. 
This cute little stamp set features 7 stamps.  It has a 2-step stamp (dots) that stamps on the tree to create ornaments.  It also coordinates with the Extra Large Oval Stamp (bird image).  This stamp set is part of the Hostess set of stamps in the Holiday Mini and is only available until January 3rd, 2014 when it will be retired.  

The tree is stamped in Gumball Green, the stars are in Coastal Cabana and the deer is in Early Espesso inks.  I used the 2-way glue pen to add lines around the base of the tree and between the deers legs and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds, so it looks like snow glistening on the ground.  You can't see that in this picture, but if you look closely at the finished tag you will see it.  I also added another star and placed small basic rhinestones in each one. 

7.  Stamp the sentiment "Wishing you......" onto a piece of Whisper white cardstock and cut it out with the smallest oval from the Oval Framelits die cuts.  Using the next size of framelit cut out a piece from Cherry Cobbler and mount the sentiment on this piece with dimensionals and then add the finished sentiment to the tag with dimensionals.
Place the wine bottle topper over your bottle of wine and you are done!  How easy was that?

Another Sample:

I made another wine bottle topper that includes a Christmas Ornament.  The base of the wine bottle topper is cut from Brushed Silver cardstock.  I made the ornament with the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and matching Framelit die cuts, and stamped it in Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo and Night of Navy inks.  Two layers of snowflakes were cut out of Silver Glimmer paper.  I put a Silver 1/8" Ribbon on for the ornament tie and added a Frosted Finishes Embellisment for the center piece in the ornament.  

I used dimensionals between all the layers on the ornament, however because dimensionals won't stick to the glimmer paper when I added a large glue dot on top of the dimensional. Works like a charm.  I attached the ribbon to the back of the ornament with tape and then used an additional large snowflake to cover this. 

The ornament was added to the wine topper with repositionable glue so it can be removed and used as an ornament on the tree.  
 Here's a final look at the two wine bottle toppers I made. 

Note:  The following products used to make these tags will be retiring on January 3rd and no longer available.
