Ellen Sosnoski of A Little Bit of This

Altered Wine Bottle & Gift Tag

Today's video by Ellen Sosnoski demonstrates how to dress up a wine bottle for that perfect gift. All you need is some burlap from the craft store, or in this case Ellen got hers from her local garden center, and your choice of ribbon. Since we are using burlap, this May Arts burlap string is the perfect fit. And as you will see from the video, it comes wired, too!   The little card is an accordion card that is perfect for any gift. And because you are tying it with some burlap string, it flattens so you can mail it, too.  Don't be afraid to think of burlap string just as you would any other traditional ribbon. It is perfect for gifts, cards or any project.
