Wine Bottle Sleeves

When I watched the video by Linda Parker on how to make these amazing wine bottle sleeves I just had to try it.  You can see Linda's video's here.  Linda is a very talented lady who shares her creativity with us, which makes us some very lucky paper crafters.

I made some with a Christmas theme using Linda's measurements, what an amazing gift for Christmas.

When I visited the bottle shop to get some wine for these great little gifts I found the large and little bottles of wine which fit Linda's measurements, I made my Christmas gifts using these measurements.

I also spied a little bottle of Yellow Glen which was slightly larger than the little bottle of wine.  I purchased this thinking that the sleeve would still fit, well it did not.  So off to the work bench to work out the measurements etc.  I nailed it on the second go (I scored the wrong side the first go).


To make the wine bottle sleeve to fit the mini Yellow Glen bottle you will need a piece of cardstock 7 1/8" x 7 3/4".  Score on the 7 3/4" edge at 3/8", 1 5/8", 2 7/8", 4 1/8", 5 3/8" and 6 5/8".  Score the 7 1/8" edge at 1 3/8" each end.  The Designer Series Paper strips measure 1" x 4 1/8" and you will need a 1 3/4" circle for the base.  Follow Linda's tutorial to make the actual sleeve.

I made the second set of wine bottle sleeves using a Smoky Slate, Silver and Whisper White colour theme.  These would be great gift for a special occasion or a hostess gift for dinner or party.

Thank you for visiting.
