"Bottle-bib" tutorial

I wanted to share a quick and easy tutorial for something that I have no idea what it's called, so I named it "bottle-bib".
It's a perfect way to dress up a (wine) bottle that you're bringing to that fancy dinner-party you're invited to;)

This is what you need:
cardstock or sturdy patterned paper
 1 1/2 inch hole punch
corner rounder punch
embellishments for decorations

Start by cutting out a 2 1/2" x 8" paper (or choose any size you want really) and round the corners

Fold one side over by 2" and round the corners where you folded (it will be double paper)

Make a hole with the punch on the folded side.

Left is just to decorate and there's no limit here: you can do it simple or go overboard with embellies.

Here, I chose to print out a recipe for White Sangria that I made up (click the photo to see the recipe up close)

The rest is just hand cut shapes from the K and Co paper that I used + Stickles and pop-up dots.

New Year's is coming up in a few days and these "bottle bibs" would be great for that Champagne bottle.

But remember that the best reason to give something away, is no reason at all:)


Good luck and let me know if you have any questions about the tutorial... or the Sangria for that matter;)

Pin It!
