GYPSY - Wine Bottle Wrappers

Hello Everyone! Wow! Thanksgiving is only a week away! Are you ready? This is Tammy and I'm working on it and want to share a project that I made to use as favors for my Thanksgiving dinner guests!  We chose a local wine to serve at our Thanksgiving dinner and bought extra bottles to send home with our dinner guests as a way of saying, 'Thank You' for coming.  I didn't want to cover up the label on the bottles should they like it and want to purchase more in the future.  So, I came up with a wine bottle wrapper that ties onto the bottle with a beautiful ribbon and can be removed for consumption (like my big word? lol!) and to keep as a souvenir of the evening.   



I used the TAGS, BAGS, BOXES & MORE and WILD CARD cricut cartridges.  Using my GYPSY, I was able to re-size the tag to fit around my wine bottle perfectly and layer the frame and sentiment to fit.  I then cut them out with my cricut expression.  See the video below for step-by-step instructions on designing this project on the GYPSY.  You will learn how to (1) re-size images unporportionately, (2) use the new multiple page feature and (3) add an informational page to each of your projects in the GYPSY.



Click HERE if you cannot see the video above.

The WILD CARD cartridge has some awesome features and they can be used for more than just making cards!  Below is the HAPPY THANKSGIVING that I used and there are sentiments for almost every holiday and/or event you would encounter.



But my personal favorite feature of WILD CARD is the frames!  Love, love, love all the frame choices!  I couldn't pick just one, so I alternated these three...



Viola!  My wine bottle wrappers are now ready!






I also love using the wider ribbons and this one was perfect for my project.  Really adds a special touch to my place settings on my Thanksgiving dinner table.



Hope you liked my wine bottle wrappers, I know my dinner guests will!  I also hope that you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving Holiday!
