Alter a kraft wine bag for a decorative quick and easy wine bottle gift

Altered kraft wine bag with Digital Delights Vino Mickey stamp, by Paperesse.

I'm up for Hostess Monday today on the Digital Delights blog, sharing a quick and easy wine bag project.

In France, it's customary to give a bottle of wine to your host when you're invited to someone's house (and flowers to the hostess). I came across these plain kraft wine bags a while back and purchased a few, thinking they'd be nice to personalize.


A recent dinner invitation to some friends' home had me digging one out and using it. I was running short on time so I chose a pre-colored version of Digital Delights Vino Mickey stamp and Cheers sentiment set. This is a nice thing about Digital Delight stamps, there's a colored version to choose from if you don't have time/don't choose to color.

The before wine bag photo.

I printed out the stamp and sentiment, diecut each with coordinating cardstock, and adhered to the bag. A grape bunch and enamel dots are simple embellishments. I think the bag after photos are much better than the bag before, don't you?!

Supply List
Paper – kraft paper wine bag
Digital stamps – Digital Delights colored Vino Mickey and Cheers sentiment set
Dies – Die-namic oval and rectangle stax
Embellishments – grape bunch, enamel dots

As with this Peggy Legz birthday card from March, I see Peggy as a freckled redhead with green eyes, and so she is again, this time all ready for autumn and Halloween.

Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant Birthday card

Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant birthday card, by Paperesse.

This is a birthday card I whipped up for one of my aunts, using Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant stamp (retired) and sentiment from Cuddly Buddly Crafts Kim's Digital Stamps Round Greetings Mixed 2 sentiment sheet. These are two of my favorite digital companies – I love Di's stamps (cute without being cutesy) and these Cuddly Buddly Crafts print out sentiment sheets make it super easy to add a sentiment.


For some reason, these sentiment sheets seem to go especially well with Di's designs. You can see where I've used the same type of sentiment with this Easter card and Valentine's Day card.


Paper is a miscellaneous outlet shop find from a company called Peddy; never seen it anywhere else before, but it is a very pretty, sturdy paper. A little traditional and crinkled paper ribbon add the final touch.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Peddy paper pack
Digital stamps – Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant, Cuddly Buddly Crafts Kim's Digi Stamps Round Greetings Mixed 2
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Dies – Die-namics circle stax
Embellishments – ribbon

Happy Summer card featuring Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ digistamp, by Paperesse.

You can see #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5 in the series by clicking on the corresponding number link.


The long retired patterned paper is from my stash.


The sentiment is from a sheet I created just for this set. The full sentiment reads 'We know it sounds corny . . .  (and inside) but here's wishing you a very 'sweet' summer and a happy 4th of July.' Or something to that effect, I can't remember the exact wording. Embellishments are simple enamel dots.

Get your Grill On! Happy Summer card with Porky's Backyard BBQ digital stamp

Get Your Grill On! Happy Summer card with Porky's Backyard BBQ image, by Paperesse.

Happy 4th of July to USA readers! Here's another of my combo Happy Summer/Happy 4th of July cards sent States side this year. As I mentioned with the first in this series – Porky Grilling card – I decided to combine summer and 4th of July greetings with images that do double duty. My 4th of July greeting is inside the card. With eight images in the set and sale priced at only $1.00, goodness knows I've gotten my money's worth with this Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set; to date I've used six of the images.


This one with an apron clad Porky ready to grill (vegetarian grilling, mind you), is my favorite so far. I used paper from Hot Off the Press's Home Grown paper pack, although the paper I've used is actually a free gift mini-kit I received with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine about three years ago (you can see more of the paper on this Country Look birthday card).


I paper pieced Porky's apron and used die-cuts from the kit as embellishments. As with cards #2, #3, and #4 I used my own sentiment from a sheet I created just for these images.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock,  Hot Off the Press Home Grown paper pack
Digital stamp – Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Dies – Die-namic circle and rectangle stax
Font – Apple Boy BTN

Hot Diggity Dog! Summer's here! Happy Summer card with Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set

Hot Diggity Dog! It's Summer! Happy Summer card featuring digital stamp from Digi Web Studio's Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set, by Paperesse.

Here's the fourth of my Porky BBQ themed Happy Summer/Happy 4th of July cards made from one of the eight images in Digi Web Studio's Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set (on sale for just $1!). And really, what is more summerish than a hot dog?! Although I don't say it on the outside of the card, a Happy 4th of July is included on the inside. Here is No. 1 Porky Grilling, No. 2 Porky Pickles and No. 3 Porky Watermelon. There have been some comments on the ethicality of Porky participating in barbecue related activities. I just want to assure everyone Porky is vegetarian, no kinfolk were harmed in his cookout cuisine.


Many years ago now – so long I've forgotten the exact number – I bought on sale at a price too low to resist Spellbinders-Grand Die-Creative Book Pages die set, but I've never got around to actually using them, 'til this card, which features two.


I fussy cut the image and added a simple gold button as embellishment. My sentiment is from a sheet I created just for the stamps.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, discount patterned paper
Digital stamp – Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Dies – Die-namic circle stax, Spellbinders-Grand Die-Creative Book Pages

Happy 4th of July Happy Summer with Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set – Pig & Watermelon card

Happy 4th Happy Summer One in a Melon card with Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp, by Paperesse.

Here's the third of my Porky BBQ themed 4th of July/Happy Summer cards made from one of the eight images in Digi Web Studio's Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set (on sale for just $1!). Here is No. 1 Porky Grilling and No. 2 Porky Pickles.


I decided on a round card to echo the watermelon shape. Paper is Picnic Day by Sharon-Dewi Stolp available on Pixel Scrapper.


Sentiment is from my own silly sheet created just for these images. The green border peeping out there is from a Christmas pack (you know, Christmas in July kind of thing) and the button looking bits there are actually brads with the prongs cut off – the only way I ever use brads.
