Need Some Date Night Ideas?

Tuesday’s Tip comes from Design Team Member Char Dobson who created these gorgeous wraps for her wine bottles.  Now I know these have a bit of a festive Holiday theme but you could easily make these for any Holiday or special occasion you may have.  So Today’s tip is to alter! Don’t be afraid to take ordinary, every day items you see around your house and add your own personal touch to them.

Remember our 12 Days of Techniques in December? Well this project features debossing. Such a fun and easy way to add a little spice to your projects. If you need a refresher or missed our 12 Days of Techniques, please check out the video here.  For this project, Char used cardstock from the Whitewash Collection. Can you see the core color on the backside of the Whitewash through the bottle? SO COOL!

And a close up of this great technique:

Other Supplies used from our preferred partners:

EK Success snowflake border punch and Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve altered? We’d love to hear!

    Great idea and I love the curly ribbon made from the paper as well.
    I love the whitewash collection colours. My favourite altered item I made was a picture framed.
