  1. When I go wine tasting I buy bottles of wine to give as house warming, birthdays, or holidays. I get the Trader joe’s wine bottle bags that they use to put the wine you buy in. So I ask them if I can take a few and they say sure. So I decorate them with ribons, stickers, glitter and all sorts of creative ways. Does anybody else have any great ideas on how to decorate wine bottle gift bags?

  2. Fantastic ideas. Truly creative. The one I like the best is Fabric Flower Paper Sacks. Sweeeet :).

  3. What great ideas! Just the other day I saw paper bags and white bags on sale at Costco and thought, huh, what could I do with 500 paper bags?
