Little Bottle Tutorial with Airbrushing of Flowers Tutorial

Hi all in the land of blog
As promised Matt dutifully aided me this morning whilst I created another Bottle Cover for a little bottle of wine, he took the photographs :)

Please note that this tutorial is Photo heavy and you may wish to grab yourself a coffee now :)

So here we go
Create a template following this example, if you cannot clearly see the numbers, click on the image to zoom in
Choose yourself a 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper and place your template onto this at the bottom, the top half you will use later on.
Draw around the template ensuring you can see the lines clearly, use a ruler to ensure that the internal lines are visible outside of the template. Scribble in all the areas that are outside the template area.

I used a straight cut blade and a score blade on my paper cutter
Using the straight cut remove the right end 
and the very top line, remember keep the large cut off piece for later
Use the score blade to run down the full length, following your lines
and also score down the middle of the template lines
Cut out the little triangles and remaining scribbled on pieces
Use one of the many hole punch tools available
and punch a hole in all of the top traingles
Here is how you should be looking at this point
You will now have your cut out piece and the spare from the 12 x 12 page like so
Use a circle die, I have used a Marianne fancy one, but use what ever you have, so long as the bottle sat on it would give you a small edge all the way around. Run this through your usual machine to cut and emboss it.
Now arm yourself with some good old fashioned clothes pegs and some good strong glue

Start to fold down all your score lines
Until all of the score lines have been folded
Use your super tacky glue to join the two ends together the small flap at the end needs glueing
Join them up and make sure you have a good seal
Place a peg on the top join and the bottom join whilst it dries
Here is where you should be at, whilst it is drying you can get on with other bits further down this list
Remove the pegs carefully
Fold all of the non holed triangles down
Add glue to each triangle
Place the top onto the bottom and then ensure that when you look inside there is an equal distance between all the little triangles and that on the outside there is equal space all the way around the base.
Place your little bottle, this is not a full size bottle, inside to hold it in place whilst it dries
Ensure that the glued seam is at the back, and then with the front two triangles towards you start to thread your ribbon through the holes around the bottom.  On the first thread you will go in from the outside and all of the others you will thread through from the back to the front, to ensure that you have two ends outside when you are ready to tie.
Just slowly work your way around
When you get to the end pull the ribbon tight like so
and tie your bow, then adjust it to make it look pretty
Take the ends of the ribbon and twist these
Then add a glue dot, I have used pinflair but you could use silicon glue, and place this at the bottom towards the back and trim off at the bottom, the flowers will hide the end.
Now create your tag, I have used a fancy nestie tag and one of my many sentiments, you can choose your own style of tag and your own sentiments.  (Photo taken on my white grand cutting sheet doesn't it get some use!!)
Then with some gold mirror card and some leaf dies and the same fancy tag die, create several leaves and the outer edge for the tag wording.
Place the wording on the tag, and add the tag to the bottle
Now it is time to decorate :) my favourite bit.

I have used lots of Wild Orchid flowers that are white, by the way the ribbon used here was a generous freebie in my last order, thank you Wild Orchid.  Now I only ever order white these days due to having my copic air brush system.
Let me show you
Notice the latex gloves very fetching but so worth it and the filthy sheet on the cutting matt, to protect it. This is one white flower and I am airbrushing it with R59
I still am amazed at how airbrushing works so well.
You can add as much or as little and as many colours as you want and you can even air brush with your atyou glitter pens
Please notice the now red fingers hence the fabulously stylish gloves
These and the leaves are glued in place all around the base of the bottle and a few smaller flowers near the tag, but wow you can decorate how you want, I often over spray with glitter lacquer but have not on this one as needed to stay in the room :)

Here is this finished bottle
Here are those that I have created so far

Hope to see some of your creations soon

What a fabulous idea! Thank you so much for the tutorial, I must have a go, once the limoncello is ready for bottling!

(I confess, at first sight I misread 'bottle' as 'battle' which was even more intriguing!)

love, MagsB x
