May Arts

I am so stoked! I am a May Arts Finalist and couldn't be more excited! If you have some time, check out the entries here. Mine is on this specific blog post so leave some love if you stop by ;)

I created a burlap covered wine bottle. We love to entertain and so do our friends so we are always brining wine and we always have a few bottles on hand. This is a quick and easy way to add pizazz to those gifts. And it is perfect for any occasion.

I used the wired burlap (on the bottle for the closure and flower) YES! I said WIRED BURLAP!!! {sigh, love}

And then for the accordion card, I used burlap string in natural and purple.


I used a big 1/2" Zap dot for the button. That sucker isn't going anywhere!!!

Here is a close up of the card. It is a made of Core'dinations Cardstock and the stamps are from Gel-a-tins Home Sweet Home set. I LOVE how versatile this set is...



Have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):)
