What are you most proud of? the gift bag doesn't need a bow or drawstring and is very quick to make. I really love those twisted flowers! I started to make gift wine bags for Christmas early, and discovered that red and white striped fabric used in the twists made adorable Peppermint Pops!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch Vanessa's class video and use the 3" wide pinked strip for a fluffy flower. It's fun to do!

thanks! I really love giving these (I need to take a better picture, it looks a lot better with a real bottle instead of tissue :-) I love it that they are reusable.
