Which makes the perfect  hostess gift for the up coming holidays

For the wall season or Thanksgiving – how about a bottle of red wine and a bottle gift tag . Made with scrap booking papers ,stickers ans stamps.

This Tag for the white wine – perfect for birthday , Mother’s day  and housewarming . But these can be made for any occasion .
