Wine Bottle Label

To inspire you: My husband and I have been visiting local wineries and enjoy sharing our finds with family and friend.
This is the time of year when dinner parties fill our entertainment schedule. I am always looking for the perfect hostess gift.
My first "go to" is a bottle of wine....but how mundane and rather impersonal. Sure the bags and boxes you can get are pretty but what a statement you will make with this quilled label!
Use sticky dots and you can use the label several times over.
Make your thank you card at the same time you do your label so you can match the colors and design. Now you will never forget to get that thank you in the mail.

Watercolor Papers From Paplin

Most recent find: Paplin has come out with a wonderful line of quilling strips called Graduated Shades of Color. The color on each strip goes from light to dark to light again. Unlike the English papers in this type, Paplin has used colors with a rich dusty look rather than the true color palette. They have added sheet paper to match. One last quilling strip collection is the two tone strips. And get this, they match the graduated papers too! Painting with paper has never been easier. For an even lacier challenge try them in 1/16" widths. I used them in the header picture.
