A few months ago I attended my cousin Kimberly’s peacock themed bridal shower in West Palm Beach, FL. I’m the type of person who doesn’t like to buy from the registry, but rather find something unique and memorable to gift to the bride-to-be so, my mom suggested this unique gift she found on Amazing Bridal Showers: a wine basket. Big woop right? Wrong. The wine basket gift comes with six poems, one for each wine bottle, that signify the first six big days the new couple will encounter in their marriage. The poems are very cute!
I decided to get a little more creative with the project and design these wine tags for each poem and color coordinate the basket. Below is a picture tour of the wine basket gift with information on the items I used to create the basket and a free download of the tags I created. Let me know if you opt to use this gift idea for your next bridal shower gift!
The wine basket gift can be anything you make of it. I chose white and lime green for the colors and picked up this white basket at Michaels. I bought lime green ribbon and crinkle paper for filler at Sam Flax and the wine at Publix.
I printed the tags on sturdy white card stock paper and cut them out with scallop scissors you can buy at any craft store. Above are all the supplies you’ll need.. sans basket. PS – pardon my horrible cutting job on the tags pictured above. Clearly, I need a lesson in cutting straight lines. Warning.. those scissors are tricky.

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2013
I no longer provide the editable illustrator files for these tags. I found several readers who had taken my designs and were selling identical pieces on Etsy. ;-( So I had to remove them. Sorry!
