HI there

As you have probably noticed, most of my blog posts so far have been the result of sorting through all photos of things I’ve made and sharing them with you.  This post is similar!

At Christmas time we always seem to have lots of bottles of wine as gifts for family and friends.  (I’m not sure if that says more about them or us!)  I got a bit sick of buying bottle gift bags this year so thought I’d come up with something a little more personal.

The result was this little Rudolph bottle topper, and I think it’s pretty cute (even if I do say so myself!)


I used some offcuts of Riding hood Red card stock I had lying around so didn’t measure the width but it was roughly 7 cm wide.    I used my largest circle punch to punch a hole for the bottle to go through and then scored below it and folded.

To make the Rudolph I used my small oval punch for the head, a 3/4 inch circle punch for the red nose, half of a 1 3/4 inch circle for the body, the ends of a word window punch for the ears and the leaves from the bird builder punch for the antlers.

I used a snowflake image from a retired stamp set to decorate the background, but any small flower stamp in white ink would probably look like snowflakes?

The bottles looked really cute under the tree with their little Rudolph neck covers 🙂


Next time I might try making birthday or general occasion bottle toppers – I may never buy a bottle bag again!

Thanks for reading
