Fall has arrived! I am so glad that cooler days are among us. It’s almost Thanksgiving and that means wine; lots of wine. My favorite hostess gift for all of our Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving festivities is a Trader Joe’s flower bunch and a nice bottle of red wine with a handmade wine bottle tag. It says- thanks, you are special and worth the time to create a little something extra.
This DIY wine bottle tag is no exception. Its easy, but exceptional. The supplies are listed at the end of this post. Below are the dimensions and directions.
Cut thick White card stock to 3″ x 7.5″. Score at 3″ from top. Fold score line.
Punch 2″ circle in middle of small scored top section to make bottle neck hole.
With scrap paper underneath, in the darkest color, Fresh Fig, ink and stamp 3-4 flowers making sure that parts of the sunflowers are extending off of the tag. Clean stamp and repeat in Berry Burst, clean and repeat in Crushed Curry ink.
Using the flower center, stamp Crumb Cake interiors to each flower. Precision not required.
Cut a piece of Berry Burst card stock to 1″ x 3″. Stamp “the best wines” from Half Full stamp set in Versamark. Cover with Copper embossing powder, tap off excess and heat with tool until shiny. Let dry for 30 seconds.
Cut 4″ Curry ribbon and scrunch and adhere to the back of 1″ Berry Burst embossed piece. Adhere Berry Burst saying to the tag front with 4 dimensionals for added depth.
Add a few faceted gold gems, hang around a bottle of your favorite red or white.
Gift and enjoy!

How stinkin’ cute is this coffee cup gift card holder?!! Y’all know I love Starbuck, like really love it. I have stamping at Starbucks events, half of my Instagram feed is filled with photos of my Starbucks choice of the day, and if you lived in my house you would hear my husband ask me how much I spent at Starbucks this month every time we sit down to go over our budget.
Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Garden Green
Ink: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Early Espresso
Normally I would jump right into the directions, but with this card, I found it was easier to cut all of the pieces first, then start assembling them. Make sure you follow the precise order, otherwise things won’t line up.
Card base: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Crumb Cake
Front Pocket: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ Crumb Cake
Stripes & Straws: 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Garden Green, Straws cut in half lengthwise
Gift Card Holder insert: 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ Whisper White
1 Large Coffee cup
2 whipped toppings- Stamp in Sahara Sand first, then die cut
1 acetate round lid
Cut all pieces described above.
Stamp Brush Strokes in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card stock.
Adhere two 1/4″ Garden Green stripes to the front pocket. I lined up the bottom of the pocket with the grid paper and placed the stripes at the fourth from the bottom, skipped one, then added the other at the 6th from the bottom. This also made sure the pieces were straight.
Score the White Pocket Insert at 1/4″ on the long edge & fold towards you so that it creates a lip. (You can place a gift card here).
Stamp sentiment in Garden Green on large Coffee Cup die cut piece.
Stamp coffee beans on outer edges of card pocket with Early Espresso ink.
Add tear tape or TomBow glue to three edges of the front pocket (leaving the top edge without adhesive) and adhere to the middle of the card base, towards the bottom. Make sure the glue is right along the edge so that there is plenty of room for the insert. Set aside to dry.
For the insert- run a thin line of glue on the back bottom of one whipped cream and adhere to top of insert, in the middle, with most of the whipped cream above the top of the insert.
Adhere the straw (half of the skinny Garden Green strips mentioned above) to the insert, pointing slightly to the side with about 1″ above the top of the insert.
Grab the large stamped cup and another whipped cream and adhere a thin line of glue to the front bottom of the whipped cream. Place the middle top of the cup over the glue and press to seal. Let dry 30 seconds.
Run a thin line of liquid glue over the middle top of the coffee cup (right under the whipped cream) and adhere the acetate rounded lid die cut. Press firmly so that glue disperses (This will hide the glue well once it dries).
Place dry insert into the front pocket. Push down so that the whipped cream is peeking out as far as it can without the insert showing across the top.
Put 4 dimensionals on the back of the finished coffee cup- NOT ON WHIPPED CREAM- only on the cup portion.
Adhere the coffee cup to the front of the pocket making sure the whipped cream from the cup covers the whipped cream on the gift card insert.
Ta-Da! You’re finished. Enjoy a coffee!
