This time of year we all have lots of parties and events to attend. A bottle of wine (or fancy vinegar, or flavored oil, or…) is the most common host gift to take. Make it extra special with a beautiful cover you made yourself. You’ll feel proud to give the gift, and they will appreciate it so much more. And this cover is deceptively easy to make! You can see another one I made recently here.


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) 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″

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 at 7/8″, 2-5/8″, 4-3/8″, 6-1/8″, 7-7/8″, and 9-5/8″
  • cut from 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 circle punch, like the 1/8″,  depending on the size of your ribbon

Cheers to the Years stamp set, Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper DSP, wine bottle cover, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Stamped with the Cheers to the Year stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock (CS), then heat embossed in silver

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • sentiment
  • a scrap of Copper Foil Sheet

Assembled the project:

  • skinny tab on one side of the bottle cover adhered to the inside of the other end of the cover with Fast Fuse
  • bottle inserted into the cover to make the next step easier:
  • folded in one of the bottom tabs, then adhered the opposite tab to it with Fast Fuse, making sure the tabs lined up with each other
  • repeated this step for the remaining two pairs of tabs, adhering them all together
  • ran a 22″ piece of ribbon through each hole in the top triangles, always front to back, then pulled it tight (not too hard or you’ll tear the paper) and tied a bow
  • sentiment adhered onto the Copper circle with Fast Fuse
  • adhered sentiment to the cover with Stampin’ Dimensionals

NOTE 1: I prefer to use dry adhesives (like Fast Fuse, Tear & Tape, and Stampin’ Dimensionals) on slick papers like the metallic foils.

NOTE 2: If you’d like to make the cover from solid color card stock, and add panels of DSP to it, each DSP panel should be 1-1/2″ x 7-3/4″.
