Wine Bottle Sleeves

Good morning and I hope this finds you all well. Today I'm showing these wine bottle sleeves that I found on YouTube.  They look so much nicer than the usual bag that you can buy.They are very easy to make, can be customised by changing the labels etc. and I think they make a simple gift look pretty special.  I made them for both the standard wine bottle and the miniature bottle.  I will put the miniature one in with my sister's gifts.

My Project

Well that's all my Christmas cards out of the way and posted so now I have time to make a few gift bags and boxes and this is the start.

A very short post but there is still a lot to do.  Putting up my Christmas tree for starters!!!   I really must get on with that today or Christmas will be here before the tree is!  I have placed my ceramic snowy village and my ceramic nativity scene, so I have actually made a start but I'll have to get my skates on.

Take care!

Hi Christine
How splendid! I have a couple of bottles to wrap and this looks so much better than a bag.
