It's Natalie here from One Scrappy Doctor and lately I've been inspired by all the food crafting going on around here! I have to admit that though, when it comes to contributing to a dinner party I'm usually one for looking for a quick way out, and I'd much rather be asked to bring the wine rather than bake something! So here's my tutorial on whipping up a simple bottle tag and glass label so that you can at least contribute to the party in style!

My basic supplies for this project come from the new Sizzix® Big Shot™ Plus Starter Kit with My Life Handmade Cardstock and Fabric. Starting with the card stock from both the small and the large books I cut a basic rectangle 8" x 3.5" long as well as a smaller 3.25" square to layer on top.

From this I've then used one of the Scalloped Circle Framelits™ Dies to cut a large hole in the top. This is going to be my wine bottle tag and already it's pretty much complete. I can now decorate it any way I like, and the possibilities are just limitless!

Sticking with the Basic Shapes die that comes with the Starter Kit I've cut out a bunch of different options from the My Life Handmade card stock, and I've made sure to include the mini tag as well because this is about to become my glass label.

It's a quick job to layer up a couple of the flower shapes and stick them down, along with the cute leaves.

Now I got a little creative when it came time for the sentiment because I didn't have anything that said exactly what I needed. So I've cut out the word 'wishes' from the Sizzix® Thinlits™ Die Set 17PK - Holiday Words: Script and used the Sizzix® Thinlits™ Die Set 30PK - Delicate Letters #2 to spell out 'best'. Clearly the font is not exactly the same, but it's a close enough match to pull it off.

After adhering the sentiment at the top of my bottle tag it just took a couple of extra touches to finish it off (always with the sequins I am!) And I think they look great as a matching set - this would even be a lovely hostess gift don't you think?
