Versatile Wine Bottle Tags

Thanks for joining me today for this weeks Papertrey Ink Design Team Tip!

The gift giving season is upon us.  With that in mind, I thought it would be fitting to share with you one of my favorite ways to dress up a gift for someone special.  The Wine Bottle Tag and Tag Sale #5 dies pair beautifully together and can help you decorate a bottle (whether filled with wine, homemade sauces, flavored syrups, etc.), gift, and card with ease.  Both are very versatile and I've got quite the assortment to share with you.  So, let me get to it!...
The Wine Bottle Tag can beautifully dress up a gift of wine, but that's not all it's good for.  I've used it for other projects too... to decorate table napkins, bottles of teriyaki sauce, waterbottles, as hanging gift card holder, and even as door knob hangers.  My hope for today is that you too will become aware of just how useful this simple die truly is!
One of my favorite ways to decorate the wine bottle tag is to pair it with the Tag Sale #5.  Which I've layered together for my first wine bottle sample.  The wine bottle tag was die cut from pattern paper found in the MakeIt Market Kit: Tinsle and Tags.
The tag sale #5 was die cut from rustic cream cardstock, stamped with trees from the Holiday Cheer stamp set and then die cut again using a Wet Paint Holiday die "JOY".  Then finished off with a bow (also from MakeIt Market Kit: Tinsle and Tags) and a rhinestone.
So, we now know that the wine bottle tag is good at embellishing bottles and such...
But it's also great on cards!  Makes creating clean and simple Christmas cards a cinch!  Simply trim off the top edge and attach.
Again I've paired it with the tag sale #5 die, but this time only the bottom portion was used.  The tag edge was topped with a stamped gift (from the Jolly Holiday stamp set) and a sentiment (from the 'Tis the Season Sentiments stamp set).
I've got one last wine bottle tag to share with you.  This one is my favorite.  
The pattern paper is from the MakeIt Market Kit: Tinsle and Tags.
I wanted to share with you how cute it would be to create a matching wine bottle tag and gift box tag.  Coordinating the two shows off a gift ensemble perfectly.
I just love this poinsettia (from the Painted Poinsettia stamp set) stamped in a color combo of sweet blush, pure poppy, scarlet jewel, limeade ice and ocean tides.
One last look at just a few project possibilities available when combining together the Wine Bottle Tag and Tag Sale #5 dies.

So what do you think?!  Could this become your Christmas wrapping of choice this year?  I sure do hope so!  Well, that's it from me today.  

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Beautiful wine gift tags! We drink that brand of wine and we have been to their tasting room in Paso Robles, CA. Great choice!

    1. This wine is one of our faves. Their tasting room is amazing!

    2. Yes, I agree on their tasting room. Have you tried the Sculpterra Winery? Our favorite winery and the grounds are spectacular! They are on the east side of Paso. Vicki A.

  2. What lovely gift tags! Perfect!

  3. Great way to use up patterned paper (that I tend to hoard), too. These are awesome, Maile. Love how you showed matching cards with your gift tags!

  4. What lovely tags Maile! That PP pad is one of the nicest holiday pads I've ever seen; after seeing so many of the DP projects using this paper pad, I may have to buy a second pad'whilevthey are still available. Oh, and that Bow...that is the cutest bow EVER!

  5. WOW!! I LOVE your tags. So pretty!!

  6. Beautiful projects, Maile - thank you :-)
