I am the girl who immediately runs to Target when I get an invitation to a shower. I always buy off the registry, which I am a firm believer in. But when two of my dear friends from my hometown announced their nuptials, I knew I would have to get creative in the gift department ( Brent, my friend’s fiance is an AMAZING Graphic Artist. He has his own Company and Insta Following: DRAW FROM SCRIPTURE. You have to check it out and be sure and follow his instagram and FaceBook Page!).
PLUS, RyRo and I were on their very FIRST DATE! I mean….AMAZING!
On to the DIY portion of this post. I first looked at the invitation for their couples shower and it stated that anything really goes. Including wine. My creative juices began to flow.
I took to pinterest for some inspiration and found some really cute custom wine bottle tags. Basically, there are all these different milestones that you can pair with a wine and a little poem.
There are TONS of vendors on ETSY who sell custom tags, but since I got my handy-dandy Cricut Explore Air, I decided to try to make them on my own. The hardest part was finding the FREE SVG Cut File in the shape of the tags, but I found one that I liked and that was easy to download. If you want to use the one I found, I linked it HERE.
The second hardest part was coming up with the little phrases I was going to use. I didn’t want it to be too deep but also wanted to make them fun and memorable.
So, here you have it. I decided to do 3 Different Bottles: 6 Month Anniversary, 1st Christmas, and 1st Anniversary.
Next, I found the cutest box that could hold all three bottles. And could serve as a place for the couple to store cards they get from their wedding/showers/anniversaries…etc. I tied it up with some string and VOILA!
I loved the outcome! And I love that fact that it is something they will definitely use and hopefully get a good laugh or smile each time they open one of these bottles!
Cheers to Kay and Brent!
