Yup!

You could prolly even use color cardstock instead of photopaper if you wanted.

It worked great, I used a small piece of folded over scotch tape on the back of the labe, to stick it lightly to the label. It looked really good, I gave my boss a selection of them for Christmas, wrapping each of them in tissue paper. It made a nice presentation. And I think it kinda elevated the "gift" than if they were just labeleb normally.

Plus I was able to write a pretty lengthy description of one, including storing tips, how to pour properly and to return the bottle.

Oh one thing, if you are using swing top bottles, you will have to cut a slit from the circle to the top of the tag. The hole is not big enough to go over the mecahanism. And it my not go over caged corks (like chamaigne bottles) either without some fiddling.

Thanks for posting Revvy, those are great. I am usually a last-minute-Lucy with my beer-gifting, so having a template for creating a quick label is awesome for me!

sure beats the hell out of painting milk on labels and trying to stick them on the bottles straight.

I keep hoping you'd do your squirell nut beer as one of these.

I think it would be cool if you guys show off any tags you make on here, it would be great to see people's creativity with the template I made.
