Up on the Rooftop Blog Hop!

Hi bloggie friends and new visitors!  Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top Blog Hop!! Holiday 2011.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you would have just come from Melissa Stout's delightful Countdown Santa. Such an adorable idea to fill in Santa's beard each day, don't you think?  So cute and clever - it's a great project for big and little kids alike as they count down to Christmas time!

If you are just jumping in on the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together, so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.

For my project, I created wine charms for the holidays and, of course, cute packaging to put them in.  Here's a look:
I made the wine charms out of the 25 and Counting stamp set, so if you're having a holiday party and want to make sure everyone can find their happy spirits, you'll have enough charms to go around.

They tie on nicely to your stemware and have a cute festive touch with the Cherry Cobbler baker's twine.  Oh and the packaging....I love how these Mini Milk cartons convert to little Christmas houses.

And here's a look at the complete ensemble:

So, not only will you have lots of wine charms at the end of this project, but you'll also have a stash of Holiday tags to make sure you can mark your presents accordingly!  All of these fit into the cute little houses that you can put in the carrier and off you go.  Holiday party and present organization all in one place :)

Another great idea for the 25&counting - I may use the wine charms for my class later this month - it would make a fun hostess gift when you go to a party - I think I may laminate them so they aren't ruined if they get wet.
Thank you for sharing this!
