Cheers! holiday wine bottle packaging inspiration using chalk markers, tissue paper pom poms and paper bows

Our cylinder wine containers are a staple at Creative Bag. They have a rich textured finish and look great just as they are with the simple white accent and rope handles. But if you are looking for a wine container to add a personal touch to for holiday gift giving these containers are perfect! And I've got a couple of diy packaging ideas for you!

The red container was decorated with a small white sparkle tissue paper pom pom* that I attached to the lid using two sided tape. If you have been reading our blog for a while you may remember seeing the "Dear Santa" tag that I created as a free download last year. I punched two holes in the tag and used a white ribbon to attach it to the container. 

*You can find my tutorial for making tissue paper pom poms here. Please note that to make this smaller pom pom I used 4 pieces of 10"x 15" sparkle tissue paper and opened all of the layers on the same side. 

The black container is another one of my chalk marker experiments. And yes, as you can see, chalk markers work on these containers! I created the vintage frame element in my chalk design by tracing around the "Dear Santa" tag. I added "cheers" inside the frame and added random snowflakes all over the rest of the container. I made the yellow paper bow using a download that I designed for Weddingbells magazine.

You can printable paper bow download and instructions here. The download is for two bows so I added the second bow to one of our black and white jewellery boxes. These boxes have a high gloss finish and are stunning. I did not use chalk markers on this box ... you could ... but wanted to keep this packaging simple and keep the focus on the box and bow.
