Valentine's Printables - Bottle Labels, Flags & Cupcake Toppers

Hi, my name is Nikki from papergravy.com printables. I'm guest posting here today!

I have designed a range of free Valentines Day (Beatles inspired!) printables for you to make using various images from the lovely graphics fairy website! 

I will show you how to create a wine bottle gift label which you can personalise with your own hand written message, and a range of buffet flags and  2" circles - which are great as cupcake toppers or party favours. They are perfect for last minute gifts and decorations for almost any occasion, which you can make at home very easily and cheaply.


color printer
double sided tape (or glue), 
lolly pop stick /straws/ cocktail sticks
2" circle craft punch (not essential)

To make the Buffet flags;
(Designed using the heart from the 'Swallowsnest' image)

Print off the buffet flag page onto letter size or A4 size paper. Fold flags in half along the dotted line.

Cut out each flag carefully with scissors.

Place straw or cocktail pick/lolly pop stick inside the fold of the flag.


then stick both sides together using double sided tape.

Your flags are now ready to decorate your valentine's buffet!

Bottle Gift Label;
(I used the anchor frame, french pink frame & swallow to create this wine bottle gift label)

Print off and cut out the label, carefully cut out the inner circle to the required size.

Fold each section of the label (you can also cut off the small section of the tag and use as a gift tag)

Pop over your chosen bottle, fill out your own personal message on the tag at the back.

Cupcake Toppers
(I chose the cherub image, cupid silhouette, hand pen graphic, angel cherub to create these toppers) 
Click HERE for the full size Printable PDF

Cut out each topper using either a 2" circle craft punch, or using scissors.

Secure to a lolly pop stick/straw using a small amount of sticky tape.

Use as cupcake toppers, party favour decorations or anything else you can think of!...

I made my own co-ordinating bunting by cutting out triangles of patterned paper, attached together with ribbon. Finally, decorate with your circles!

create your own bottle decorations using ribbon tied around the bottle neck and held in place with a circular topper!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
