P1030775

Hi Everyone! I totally stole this idea from a beach-side restaurant while on vacation. With summer parties gearing up, especially those with a tropical theme, I wanted to share this with you. Can't you just see using this at the beverage station or at each table?!? P1030771 Especially with colorful glasses with drink umbrellas? 

Materials needed:
Empty wine bottle. I think any glass bottle will work.
Cork
Printed menu (or your party themed message)
Decorating elements
Sand. You can find at hobby stores, your child's sand box, the beach, etc…
Optional – Small shells to fit through bottle top

I measured half around the middle of the bottle for the width of the menu, The height could go all the way up to the top of the neck.
For mine  – I used:
Menu:
Various paper from Island Oasis DP117173 in the Summer Mini
4 x 5 1/2 Printed Menu (next time I'll use cardstock vs. printer paper)
4 1/4 x 5 3/4 layer
4 1/2 x 6 layer
Flowers trimmed out ot DP
Snail adhesive and dimensionals.
Belly Band:
10" x 2" DP strip
10" x 1" DP strip

Layer belly band strips on top of each other & adhere. Wrap around bottle and adhere.
Layer Menu items – decorate with cut-out images from DP and other embellishments of choice.
Adhere over belly band covering seam. Make sure to run adhesive on the edge of the paper to avoid paper not being flush with bottle. If you have gaps, sneak a glue dot to keep it down. VIDEO COMING SOON.

If you try this, let me know! and feel free to send pictures. And until next time… Happy Crafting! `Dee
