- Cut base paper (I used cardstock, but it would look quite nice with patterned paper as well) to 3 x 10 inches.
- Score base paper at 3 inches.
- Cut patterned paper to 2.75 x 9.75 inches.
- Don’t score the patterned paper yet; you want to wait until it’s lined up properly on the base paper so you know exactly where it needs to be folded. But I do recommend scoring a second time so that your project folds crisply. I’ll tell you when.
- Notch the bottom of the patterned paper into a banner shape.
- Lay the patterned paper on the base paper and cut the matching notch into the base paper.
- Flip the base paper over and find the center of the 3-inch section by lightly drawing an X from corner to corner. This will ensure that you punch your bottle neck opening in the right spot.
- At this point, because I use adhesive that isn’t hard to pull up, I adhered the two papers together so that I could punch them at the same time. Then I used a 1.25-inch circle punch to create the bottle neck opening.
- Carefully pull up the patterned paper from the base paper and line up a 1.5-inch circle punch around the original hole to create the double ring effect. Glue the two papers back together.
- Now put the project back on your scoring board and score again at 3 inches.
- Have fun embellishing your wine tags!
I created both of these tags using past years’ My Mind’s Eye Christmas collections—”Festive” on the left tag and “Be Merry” on the right one. I loved how they turned out! And I’m entering them in the MME December challenge to make small gifts/stocking stuffers.
