All dressed up and someplace to go!

Hello friends! Last night I had a Christmas party to attend. I had a wonderful time. I have to say, it is the first Christmas party I have been invited to in a LONG time! I wanted to take an adult beverage with me for the hostess - I love Moscato De Asti and that is what's in the bag here. I knew she'd enjoy a little bit of sweet bubbly. I was going to buy a fancy schmancy wine bag.. then I thought.. why? I can decorate this plain paper bag and make it look better than any store bought bag!

And.. I did! Isn't it pretty? It took me maybe 10 minutes to whip this together.. and its very pretty and eye catching.

What I used:

Adult Beverage in a brown paper bag
3 1/2 inch Scalloped Tulle Ribbon - Cherry Cobbler
Very Vanilla Card Stock
Glimmer Paper - Champagne
Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink
Bold Snowflake 
More Merry Messages
Snow Flurry Bigz Die
Big Shot
Blossom Punch
Glue Dots
Large Pearl
Linen Thread

So, if needing a quick fancy schmancy bag, to take your "party favor" in, look no further than miscellaneous items in your craft room and give it that little extra personal touch - it will let others at the party realize just how crafty you are!
