I couldn’t resist recycling some great product tags my husband gave me from his new water bottles. They had such a fun water droplet pattern on them that I knew would be a great background for a wine bottle gift tag.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. This post also contains affiliate links. The opinions I share are solely my own.
The tags are made of plastic and are super sturdy to work with. I started by applying white gesso over the product name and adding some background color with a couple of Neocolor II crayons (Royal Blue and Azurite Blue). I then created my grapes with modeling paste and the Profile with Dots stencil.
Once the modeling paste was dry, I played around with a few supplies to get my grapes the way I wanted. The basic order went like this:
- Neocolor II crayon in Violet rubbed across the modeling paste and then water activated with a brush
- Used my fingers to apply FolkArt Perfect Purple acrylic paint to each of the grapes
- Shaded the bottom of each grape with an Inktense pencil in Violet and waterbrush
- Added highlight to each grape with a white gel pen
- Shaded around the outside of the grapes with an Inktense pencil in Deep Violet and waterbrush
- Added a bit more Neocolor II crayon in Azurite Blue to the tag
To create the grape leaves, I cut out half a leaf shape from leftover Gelli® printed deli paper and added a few veins with the Inktense pencils.
I glued the leaves onto the tags with matte medium and trimmed the edges to fit the tag. I then stamped the word “Cheers” onto a piece of cardstock, punched a hole in the top, added some shading to the cardstock with an inkpad in green, and finally, tied on a piece of twine to the top. The “Cheers” tag was then hot glued to my gift tag.
I’m all set for the next time I need a hostess gift! A bottle a wine is always a good idea in my book!
