Whether you’re looking to make your own wine collection a little more festive or you’re searching for an easy hostess gift for the holiday party season, I have you covered today. We are using the cutest little bottle brush trees and a dash of white glitter to create the most whimsical little wine stoppers! – Mandy of Fabric Paper Glue
Mini Bottle Brush Trees
Step One: Cover each cork in painters tape leaving only the top tip untaped.
Step Two: Apply a layer of glue to the top of the cork with a small paint brush.
Step Three: Cover the glue in white glitter.
Step Four: Before the glue has dried, spray sealer onto the glitter, and carefully remove the tape.
Step Five: Affix a tree or two to the top of each cork using craft glue. Once dry, throw them in a little muslin drawstring bag for a great hostess gift. Or better yet, pop open a bottle of wine, and put your little winter wonderland into action!

Flowers are my second love (after stationery, of course), and fresh flowers can make all the difference during dark and dreary winter. I’m always on the hunt for beautiful vessels to hold small arrangements. I can’t get over the stunning vases and ring dishes from The Object Enthusiast – each one is more beautiful than the last!

I’ve been so busy with holiday-related content, I haven’t been able to feature any baby announcements for the past few weeks! Let’s remedy that today, shall we? Heather from Maida Vale recently welcomed her first child – an adorable little boy named Henry. Inspired by her musician husband, Heather knew she wanted to create a guitar-inspired birth announcement. So cute!
From Heather: Before Henry’s birth, my husband Shawn and I developed the concept behind his announcement. Shawn is a musician, so I designed a “ticket” wrap to announce Henry’s debut. After Henry was born, the talented Carolyn Kipper orchestrated the photo of him perched on Shawn’s guitar. I then printed the wraps on my press and outsourced double-sided photo cards. Finally, we tied the whole bundle together with a guitar pick and baker’s twine.
Thanks – and congratulations! – Heather!
