Hostess gifts, thank yous, wine…. it’s all good!

Hello everyone – Karen Ellis Here!

I’ve been busy wrapping up a big fundraiser for our local sea cadet corp – a wine taste & buy!   Yummy, right?    All the wine is ready to be delivered and I am just getting my bottle tags ready to identify their new owners.  wink


I love how these turned out and wanted to share them with you!   I thought they’d be FABULOUS for those of you who take a bottle of wine as hostess gifts during the holiday season.   I made my Bottle Tags a wine theme but they could just as easily be created with a Christmas or Hanukkah theme as well!

The bottle tags were made using my Brother ScanNCut machine.

#1 Brother

I found a template online and created a cut file for them in Brother ScanNCut Canvas (scanncutcanvas.brother.com – feel free to email me for the file if you’d like … thearthousestudio@rogers.com).   You could also cut a rectangle out of heavy cardstock (Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock would ROCK) and punch a 2” hole at one end too…   I love the convenience of using the cutting machine though – especially for cutting multiple tags!


I didn’t have a wine bottle stamp so I decided to make my own.   Here are the supplies you’d need to do the same:


Speedball Pink Carving Rubber

Stabilo ALL Pencil

Speedball Carving Tool

Your favourite ink

The Bottle Tag

and it’s handy to have a foam stamping pad to stamp on!

You don’t NEED to be able to draw – you can also trace an image onto the stamp rubber as well but I love the abstract block look of a simple hand drawing!  I used a Stabilo ALL Pencil because it’s designed to write on all surfaces and it wipes clean with water if you wish as well.


Carve out your image with  stamp carving tools.


My rule of thumb… the messier the better for that abstract look so it’s really not intimidating to do!


Then all that’s left to do is stamp!

I loved this look so much I made a simple card by backing it with some coordinating cardstock and a little twine wrap.  These will make fabulous thank you cards for the wineries that participated!

Stamp or write a sentiment along the bottom edge of your wine tag to personalize it for your special occasion.


Happy Carving!   And thanks for letting me share!!
