Wedding Champagne



A couple in the neighborhood has a daughter who's getting married this coming Saturday. I wanted to give her a little something, so I took one of her wedding invitations and cut it apart to make a tag for a bottle of champagne. She's having an outdoor wedding and her invitation was composed of sunflowers, gold colors and woodgrain. I took a piece of the wood-grain panel and cut it to size, punching hearts on the bottom with a MS heart border punch and used vanilla cardstock to in-lay the hearts. The sunflowers were hand-cut from the invitation and placed on top of the wood-grain panel, adding some neutral lace trim to the top with tiny pearls. I used a MS doily punch for the lower borders and gold-embossed a SU! "congratulations" at the top. The medallion with their names was taken from the invitation and attached with the gold twisted twine (also from the invitation), and I made a mat with a Gina Marie Designs stitched circle die. The stringed clear beads were a find from a store close-out that I bought probably 7-8 years ago - knowing I'd find a use for them one day. The decorative bow was recycled from wired gold ribbon on a gift we received a long time ago, and it all seemed just perfectly festive to wrap up this bottle of champagne!

There is nothing prettier than an autumn wedding, and I wish this couple much happiness!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

Such a fabulous gift. The bride and groom will treasure it for sure. Even if they do open the bottle they can still save that gorgeous tag. What a fantastic idea to make it form parts of their invitation. Just Lovely.
