Wine Bottle Hanging Treat Box

This month, I want to share with you the hanging treat boxes I make when I give a bottle of wine as a gift.
My home-based cupcake business, TLCuppycakes, has expanded to include Bridal Showers and Wedding Receptions and I like to leave this as a thank you gift next to the cupcake display:
I try to make these in the couple's wedding colors and I include designer chocolates and my business card inside for a lovely, memorable gift!
This bride chose navy and platinum for her wedding and I was able to match her color scheme nicely with Stampin' Up colors! (Notice the name of the wine? )
This treat box hanger can be adapted to any bottle; soda, water, juice, or can be altered to hang on a door knob by using a larger circle punch.
Directions for the Treat Box Hanger can be found on SplitCoast Stampers at www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/hanging_treat_box
Stampin' Stuff:
Stamps: Oval All, Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Walk in the Park
Ink: Night of Navy, Going Gray
Glitz & Glam: 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, 1 3/4" Oval Punch, Jewelry Tag Punch, Navy 3/8" Organdy Ribbon, Medium Cellophane Bags, non-SU platinum pearls
Cool Tools: Paper Piercing Tool, Sticky Strip
