Wine Gift Bag

 It's summer around here and that means BBQ's and summer parties.  Welcome back to 10 on the 10th.  A group of bloggers sharing ideas and inspiration for under $10.  This month our theme is 'July 4th/Summer' and I've created the perfect way to 'dress' a bottle of wine.  
Whether you're bringing the Hostess a gift or you've been asked to bring some wine to the party, it always looks better when it's 'dressed-up' a bit.  Here's what you need:
An old pair of jeans, a pocket, rubber band, ribbon, a flag, and a bottle of wine.  
Start by cutting off one of the legs from your jeans. 
I cut mine a little longer than the wine bottle.
Turn the leg inside out and run a stitch across the cut end.  
Sit the seam flat on a table and stitch either end.  It makes the bottom of the bag neater.
Turn the bag right side out and decide on the placement of the pocket.  I used Aleen's Tacky glue to attach it.
The basic gift bag is done.
Put your bottle of wine in the bag and use the rubber band to hold it in place.
Tie a pretty ribbon around the rubber band and place a small flag in the pocket.
You're all ready for that 4th of July party!
The best part of this project is that it works for any occasion.  For a birthday, add noisemakers, and a party hat.  For Christmas, some candy canes.  The pocket is also the perfect spot to put a gift card.  The possibilities are endless, so shout-out your ideas in the comments!


Don't forget, this is 10 on the 10th and there are lots of ideas to be explored.  Be sure to visit each of the blogs below for more inspiration.
