An Idea for Home Wine and Beer Makers, and of course…stampers

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comMy husband and I have recently started to make our own wine and he makes his own beer.  Why am I posting about wine and beer?  Well, we had a friend come to our house to help with a project and as a "thank you" to him my husband wanted to give him a bottle of our wine, and he asked me if I could do some kind of a label for the bottle.  This is what I came up with, and I decided to do labels for our remaining bottles.


image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comI used 4×2 mailing labels to do the actual label, but did use Stampin' Up! Taken with Teal card stock and ink.  I used the little wine, cheese and grape stamp from the Voilà stamp set.

When I was making the labels, to help the label fit the bottle better, I curled the card stock after I put the label on.  I placed the label at the edge of my table and pulled it down and toward me to make the card stock curl. I did this process a couple of times.  After curling it I applied my adhesive and put the label on the bottle.

For the tag I still used Taken with Teal card stock and ink.  I use the retired Stampin' Up! Designer Label, Terrific Tags, and Euphoria Alphabet & Numbers stamp sets.  On my tag punch tag I wanted to add a little color by using a flower from the Accents & Elements with a silver brad.  I cut a piece of the 3/8" Twill Tape (big enough to slid over the neck of the bottle), used the 1/16" circle hand held punch and used a brad to hold it together and used the snail adhesive to put the tag on the tape.  I hope this will give you ideas for other things that you could put labels on.

Thanks for stopping at Jill's Stamping Corner (JSC),
