Bottoms Up! or Cheers!

My daughter-in-law and son had a big party at their house last weekend to celebrate her birthday. Along with some pj's and a few little goodies, I got her (and the party goers) a large bottle of Absolute Vodka. Instead of trying to wrap it, I decided to make a hang tag to go over the bottle. I cut a long strip of cardstock and scored it about 3 - 4 inches from the top. Then punched a round hole to go over the bottle neck. Cosmo Bella is the perfect stamp to go with a gift of Absolute. I used prismacolors and gamsol to color her. The patterned paper is from the Marakesh collection from Basic Grey. I also thought that a version of this might be good to use for a bottle of wine given as a gift. Thanks for taking a peek. Cheers!

this is fabulous Val! I have done something similar at Christmas with wine. Just makes the whole wrapping process easier.
