Far more than a bottle bag

This was a really quick make as it took less than an hour. I wanted something to make a champagne bottle look a bit more like a gift for a couple whose evening reception I was attending but didn't want a traditional bottle bag. I came up with the idea of a collar so made 3 flowers using a sissix die and my bigshot and lots of ribbon. The collar was decorated with stamped images that wrapped around the back -sorry in the rush I forgot to take piccies of the back as I didn't start to make the collar until 2 hours before we left for the do. I attached the flowers and the ribbon loops and trails using split pins and also added a tag with ribbon with our good luck and congrats message. The congratulations is a peel off which I stuck to a shape I received as a prize many months ago.

I was actually quite pleased with how it turned out as I felt it looked far more impressive than a bottle bag.
