Wine Bottle Gift Tags

A nice gift tag to go with a bottle of wine or other liquor.

With all of the holiday parties coming up, I thought it would be nice to create some wine bottle gift tags.  Even if you are not expected to bring anything to the party, I still like to take the host a nice bottle of wine.  These easy to make tags can dress up a  bottle and make the gift feel a bit more special.
To make the tags I cut my cardstock to measure 3 1/2" x 9 1/2" and scored it at 2 1/2".  I rounded the corners using the 3/16" Corner Punch and dressed them up using a variety of ribbon, Designer Series, Paper and sentiments.  To make the opening for the bottle I punched a hole in the top with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  To decorate the circle and make it sturdier, I punched another 1 3/8" circle into coordinating cardstock, and then lined up my 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch over the cut out circle and punched out the scallop circle.  I find that is easier to do than trying to line up my circle punch over my cut scallop circle.  This way I can see exactly where my scallops are lining up. 
To dress them up even a bit more you could tie more ribbon around the neck of the bottle, but for now I think I will leave mine like this.
