Inspiration November challenge - how to decorate a wine bottle

Hi Hermine here. This time is was my turn to make an inspiration piece for the november challenge. Down below a little tutorial on how to decorate a bottle, its an awesome way to make a present.

Used the colours to make this inspiration piece.  

The template for a wine bottle of 750 ml

First you use the template and make the holes for the eyelets already, this way if the lines disapeare when you colour it with inks or paints you still know where to carve your lines.

Colour your paper, I used Dylussions spray ink

Take a stencil and make the checkered part and stamp with white ink the washi grid background 19074 and the Blowing Dandallion with seeds 19048. Stamp with Stazon Black the Chevron Banner 19042 at the top.

Take a scrap piece of paper and stamp with Stazon Black Drink me 19289, Untill further notice 19172 and the Dancing Lady 19183. Colour them and cut out. Glue them on the background

Put the eyelets in and use some matching washi tape. At the right hand side I made a little hole and put a charm on it, they are meant to put around the stem of a glass so everyone knows which glass is from whom. Funny thing is that once you put it around the bottle and remove it again it keeps its shape.

A second sample with a champagne bottle, different colours and stamps. And instead of 6 bands I used 7.

Hope you like it. It makes awesome present for birthdays, anniversaries, thank you's or just because...  and you don't need wine or champagne bottles, think shower/bath gels or anuthing else that goes in a bottle.
