Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a project that’s been requested a lot, and that’s a gift bag for a large bottle of wine.
Due to the heavy weight of these bottles, its not easy to do and I’ve wanted to make sure that I get it right and confident that it can take the weight.
This measures 14″ x 3.1/2 and will fit a standard bottle size.
I used the brand new Organic Kaleidoscope papers by the Natural History Museum.
This is an amazing 50-page pack of beautiful, unusual images available from Craft Stash here.
For the tag, I used the beautiful Fern Border dies by Bright Rosa also available from Craft Stash here.
And the Sentiment toppers by Dovecraft are available from Amazon here.
My wooden dowels have come in handy again. I purchased them from The Works and you can find them online here.
Not only do they support the bag and add strength but they also work well with this style.
To cut the semi-circle I used my trusty XCut Circle Cutter. You can find it here.
The main glue I used is the Collall All Purpose Glue, this dries stiff adding a firm finish to the cardstock, perfect for this kind of project.
You can purchase the collall from many online stores, but I’ve found the best offer here.
Another glue I’ve found to dry very stiff is the Tesa Easy Stick. Available from Amazon here.
I reinforced the base with 2 more layers of 350gsm cardstock just to really make sure the base would bow!
To make this you will need…
4 pieces of 10″ x 11″ strong cardstock I used the Papermainia Colossal Colours Collection.
Score along the 10″ side of 2 of the pieces at 3.1/2 & then 7″ only down to the first score line.
Score along the 11″ side of the same 2 pieces at 3.1/2
With the other 2 pieces, score along the 11″ side at 7.1/2
Score along the 10″ side at 3″ just to first score line and then 6.1/2 all the way down.
2 pieces of 5″ x 12″ pattern paper.
2 wooden dowels. Mine is just over 12″ and around 5mm thick.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
I really hope you like my idea today and it helps the many of you who requested this tutorial.
Have a great weekend.
