#204 Shopping Our Stash - Red, Red Wine

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
The challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is  Red, Red Wine. 
 Use the color "wine"or use your wine stanps.   Use reds, or use a wine/drinking theme (or both!)
I made three projects for this challenge:
Two wine cradles and one wine bag
I love re-purposing and when I saw all the little cardboard sleeves used to protect my infusion meds, I asked my nurse, Amy, to save them for me.  My original plan for this challenge was to make the wine bag only, but, after tripping (twice) over my HUGE bag of cardboard sleeves, I decided to bring one of my ideas for the sleeves to life.

I used one of the infusion kit sleeves  to create the "There's Always Time for Wine" Cradle."
The Good Times Cradle was created using a Viva Ink Gold Carton that I've had for 6 months.
 My wine cradles fit perfectly inside the wine bag .  The Cradles look awesome on my very "rustic dining room table. 

    I learned a few new tricks that will improve my "VERY" novice sewing skills!
The tag is from CCB's "Uncorked Sayings on Kraft."  The Fabric, from 7 Gypsies' "Farmhouse" 
 Just playing around with my inks and gesso on my "Always Time for Wine" cradle,  I learned how to make cardboard look like bamboo.

Thanks for stopping by!  Looking forward to seeing your makes in our Challenge
