Here’s to the Good Life! Wine bottle tag.

I’ve been busy, busy, busy using my Silhouette Cameo and Stampin’ Up! supplies to make  things for my little sister’s 50th birthday party!!! ( I don’t know how I’m old enough to have a little sister that is 50!!! Haha!)

My sister Barb is always positive and upbeat, so I chose “Life is Good” for the theme. I made wine bottle tags for the tables. (Supply list and directions at end of post.)

Here's to the Good Life, Wine Bottle Tag, Peace-Love-and-Joyce

 

Life is good when enjoying a nice bottle of wine with friends and family!  And just like a fine bottle of wine, Barb’s not getting older, she’s getting better!

I wanted to make wine glasses for the party guests, but I was never quite able to master etching glass.  After four “craft fails” I finally gave up the idea of making glasses for thirty guests! I think part of my problem was attempting too large a design and so I was unable to get the stencil to wrap smoothly around the glass and ended up with wrinkles that allowed the etching cream to leak into areas that I didn’t want etched.

CRAFT FAIL I couldn't quite master glass etching!

CRAFT FAIL
I couldn’t quite master glass etching!

If you’ve mastered etching glass, I would welcome any helpful tips!

Peace, Love and Joy,

Joyce
