Greetings, everyone! It's Melody, sharing an embellished beverage bag that Kathy, our Quilting Assistant, whipped up. This darling bag is perfect for gifting a favorite bottled beverage for Christmas, New Year’s or any other festive occasion. It also makes a charming addition to a bottled hostess gift! Just grab your Sizzix machine, a steel rule die of your choice, and you’ll have a beautiful and personalized gift in no time. The die featured on the bag, Flowers & Vine #4 was created by Sizzix Licensed Designer Jorli Perine!
