Woohoo! It’s time for the November edition of the Remarkably Created Blog Tour! This month we’re featuring the new Stampin’ Blends Markers. They come in 12 of your favorite Stampin’ Up! colors (a light and a dark in each color) plus Ivory and Bronze. And there’s a Color Lifter! You can buy them all individually or you can purchase all 27 as a collection.
My project today is a cover for a wine bottle. A bottle of wine is such a popular gift to take to a party or a dinner, and of course, you want to give it in something nice. This cover is perfect for year round, any occasion or holiday. And it’s easy!
Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 11″ x 12″
- scored along the 11″ side at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″, 7″, 8-3/4″, 10-1/2″
- scored along the 12″ side at 2″ and 10″
- burnished all score lines with a Bone Folder
Cut using Paper Snips, according to the diagram:
- removed two smallest rectangles and angled the leftover tab (in blue)
- cut vertical score lines along the bottom just up to the first horizontal score line
- marked along the top side with a pencil at 7/8″, 2-5/8″, 4-3/8″, 6-1/8″, 7-7/8″, and 9-5/8″
- cut from pencil marks to the intersections of the vertical score lines and the first horizontal score line – this cuts away the green areas
- used a 1/4″ circle punch to cut a hole in each triangle, about 1/2″ or so from the top – you may want to use a smaller one, like the 1/8″ Circle Punch, depending on the size of your ribbon
Stamped with the Half Full stamp set:
- bottles, wine glasses, and sentiment in Memento Black ink onto the six largest rectangles of the Whisper White Thick CS cover
- bottles in Archival Basic Clack ink onto a scrap of a Gold Foil Sheet
Fussy Cut using Paper Snips:
- tops and labels of wine bottles stamped on Gold Foil Sheet
Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:
- bottles in Old Olive
- wine in glasses in Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight
Assembled the project:
- gold wine bottle tops and labels adhered over the colored wine bottles on the cover, using Fast Fuse
- skinny tab at one side of the cover adhered to the inside of the opposite side, using Fast Fuse
- inserted wine bottle to make the next step easier
- folded in one bottom tab, then glued the opposite tab to it
- rotated the bottle and glued the next pair of tabs, then the last pair.
- NOTE: Do one pair at a time so they line up and create a symmetrical hexagon when you’re through. The only tab that doesn’t get glue is the first one, so it won’t stick to the bottle. All the other tabs are glued to the one(s) above it.
- starting in the front, ran about 22″ ribbon through the holes in the tops of the triangles, always front to back
- ran the ribbon through the first hole again, back to front, then tied a bow, and trimmed the ribbon ends
