A bottle of bubbly is an obvious host or hostess gift for your New Year’s parties! A wine bottle tag is a quick way to personalize your present. This idea would also be an easy one to change up slightly for any other holiday event.
New Years Wine Bottle Gift Tag Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Couture Cardstock in Black Tie
- Core’dinations Glitter Silk Glitter Cardstock in King’s Crown
- Core’dinations Core Basics Kraft Cardstock
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Cardstock in Snowflake
- 2″ Circle Punch
- Gold Sequins
- Electonic Cutting Machine or templates
Step One: Trim snowflake cardstock into 9″x3″ strip. Using a 2″ circle punch, create a hole in the end of the cardstock strip, centering left to right.
Step Two: Score the punched cardstock strip, on the punched end at 3″.
Step Three: Using an electronic cutting machine, die cut, or template cut the word “Cheers!” from Glitter Silk cardstock.
Step Four: Using an electronic cutting machine, die cut, or template cut bow tie elements from Core Couture Glitter cardstock.
Assemble the bow tie pieces.
Step Five: Computer generate “Happy New Year” on Core Basics Kraft cardstock and cut into strip. Cut additional 1/2″ strip of kraft cardstock and adhere to wine tag.
Step Six: Assemble all elements of wine tag. Trim bottom of tag into pennant shape, adhere sequins and date stickers or die cuts as shown.
Repeat for additional bottles!

Step 1: Begin by cutting Snowflake Border die with white cardstock. You will need 25 die cuts, one for each day until Christmas if you start on December 1. Glue to top of envelope.

Each day your family and friends can enjoy opening a little gift to help countdown the holidays.
Hey friends, Adrianne here, and today I’ve got a fun paper turkey craft that you can print and make at home. Not only does it look cute as table decor, but it’s also an activity, and an exercise in thankfulness. There’s also a free printable PDF file to make your own – the shapes are simple, just trace and cut!
The turkey is built around a small paper box interior, and it’s a place where the whole family can write something they’re thankful for on a slip of paper, and drop inside. On Thanksgiving, you can retrieve the papers, and read out load what people have written.
Paper turkey table decor supplies:
- Coredinations Chocolate Box 12×12 sheets, in colors you like best (I used Dewberry, Cool Mint Truffle, and Key Lime for the body, and Maplenut for the beak and feet)
- Core’dinations Core Basics 110 lb. card stock, one 8.5×11 sheet
- Sand-it Gadget
- Scoring board and bone folder
- Optional: Embossing folders, and manual embossing machine like the Sizzix Big Shot
- Optional: Google eyes and other facial embellishments
- Optional: Circle cutter
- Quick-dry liquid glue
- Printable template (click to download and save or print)
Step 1. Print your template, and cut and score your box. If you print the box template directly onto your 8.5 x 11 heavy-duty card stock, you can just cut and score along the lines. Cut the template for tracing your feathers. Then, glue your box sides together and the bottom closed.
Step 2. Trace and cut your feathers and circles. If you have a circle cutter, you’ll find it easiest just to cut two 4″ circles and one 5″ circle. If you don’t have a circle cutter, you can print the circles from the template, cut and trace them onto your card stock, and cut them out. You will need 7 feathers.
Step 3. Trim one inch off the 5 inch circle and one of the 4 inch circles. This will give you a flat edge for assembling it on the box.
Step 4 (optional). Emboss and/or sand your Chocolate Box pieces. I used a Darice brand embossing folder with circles and dots, but any pattern that you have that you like will work well! I also embossed the feathers with a Darice brand folder with a swirling vine pattern. I did not sand the feathers. You can also sand the pieces without embossing them to expose the colored core.
Step 5. Assemble your circles on the front of your box. The trimmed 5-inch circle will be the body, and the intact 4 inch circle will be the head. Then, arrange the feathers on the back side of your box, and cover the raw edges with the final trimmed 4-inch circle.
Step 6. Give it a face! Add embellishments like google eyes, foam stickers, or cut your own face pieces from card stock. I used google eyes, and I also cut a pair of feet to add stability to the bottom. I did not include a template for the facial pieces, because making it your own is half the fun of this craft!
You can leave this little guy out on your table all month, and add “thankful” notes to the box at any time as they occur to you – or, wait until Thanksgiving, and have everyone share together! Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Card by Mary Pat
Hi Everyone! Mary Pat here with you today and with the holidays fast approaching I have a great idea for a Clean and Simple Thanksgiving Day card that is so easy that you will want to mass produce these to send to everyone on your Friends and Family list!
Thanksgiving card supplies:
- Core’dinations Chocolate Box
- Tim Holtz Shattered Collection
- Sand it Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Simon Says Stamps
For my card I broke out some of the yummy Chocolate Box collection and used the Cherry Cordial. I then scored and sanded my edges. I then used a digi cut file from the Silhouette store and cut out the flower. I backed the negative space with the Tim Holtz Shattered collection. Finally I stamped my sentiment using the back of the Cherry Cordial.
Here is a video on how this card came about:
Thanks so much for joining me. Hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
