Stylin' Stampin' Squad December Hop!

Watch out readers! Two posts are coming at you in ONE day! 
Thank you so much for joining us for the December Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  This month our projects focus on quick and easy gift ideas for the holidays. As we enter the month of December, we find that the Christmas holidays are fast approaching. From decorating our homes to holiday baking, we realize that shopping days are running low. That's why we want to share quick and easy gift ideas that anyone can create in time for that special someone! 
As you hop along, you will see that many of our design team members are giving away some great blog candy this month. **Unfortunately due to military and Italian laws, I am unable to offer blog candy to anyone who comments BUT please feel free to leave them anyway!**  We love to hear from our readers!

This month I decided to showcase some quick and easy stocking stuffer gifts.  In Italy, wine is everywhere.  The Italians drink it anytime of the day, honestly they drink it with breakfast too.  So naturally, giving a bottle of wine when visiting someone's house is almost expected.  I decided to add a little 'flair' to a wine bottle.  Why not dress it up and give it something to make it look pretty?!  Its hard to see in the picture, but the glass on this bottle is beautiful! It spirals around and even better, the wine tastes GREAT! Its a peach moscato wine and is probably my most favorite wine I have tried here so far.
Stocking stuffers can be quick and easy so I decided to make some drink packet holders and also some treat bags.  The treat bags are using one of the kits from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog.  So simple and easy and comes with everything you need to create 10 treat bags (although the stamp set is sold separately).
I sold these at a craft fair I did this past weekend and received 2 custom orders for the drink packet holders and sold most of my treat bags.  Everyone loved them!
