There is more than wine in that bottle!

We opened a wine bottle last weekend and it had foil like covering which I
took off as easily as possible without tearing it all up - could be used
to form any metal type item. It is soft enough you could emboss a design in
it and use as a picture or the inserts of doors in a pie safe. No
picture; just theory. The wire "thingie" that held the cork in place looked just
like a footstool to me, and about the right size. You might want to
shorten it just a bit. I believe the cork could be carved to make an item, say a
heart, and then you could use it to print hearts across the top of a
roombox or something.
