Echo Park wine bottle pocket tag tutorial

   My intentions have been good to welcome our new neighbors who moved in across the street....2 months ago!  I had purchased a bottle of wine for them after they first moved in and I wanted to make a pocket tag for it.  The tag is a journaling card and the alphas and house are stickers; all from Echo Park "Life is Good" collection.  The card stock is early espresso by Stampin' Up! and the ribbon is from my scrap jar.

  Then I went to sweet Bonnie's blog and saw that she made a wine tag for the current Crafty Ribbons challenge:  Anything But Square.  Perfect timing!  Also, fabulous Carla (of Shopping Our Stash fame) has a new challenge blog called "Anything But a Card."  I pretty much only make cards, but I want to support Carla whenever I am able.  This week's challenge at Anything But a Card:  "Texture."
 I have multiple popped up layers (grass, small heart) as well as mini brad door handle, and glossy accents on the window and tiny heart.  I also used my grandma's sewing machine to sew around the edges to create the pocket to hold the tag with our names and home phone number.
Thank you for stopping by!

To make a pocket wine tag:

  • Cut card stock @ 2 1/2" x 10 1/2"
  • score @ 2 1/2" and 8"
  • decorate as desired
  • sew or use red line tape/photo tape to create pocket at the bottom

Happy Thursday!
