    I am reading because you sent me an email to check this out and yet the label says 2011 and I need it for 2014. HELP?

    The wine bottle label template has been edited to read 2011.

    Is it possible you could edit the wine bottle label and repost? It says 2010 on it. I cannot edit myself as it is a PDF file...
    Thanks!

    I antiqued some regular copy paper with tea and coffee, and then tore the edges of the label to make it look aged some more. Instead of the bath soaps I used sand from our local beach. We were getting ready to move out of state, and I wanted to take a little piece away with us (we were engaged on the beach). My husband LOVED it (and he's not normally the sappy romantic type.)
