Rustic Christmas Gift Wrap Kit

Pine Cone & Holly Stems

 

STEP 1

Empty your bag of paper shreds into the bottom of your basket and evenly spread them out. These will help cushion and elevate the goodies you place in the basket.


STEP 2

Use one of the gift stickers from the Rustic Christmas Gift Wrap Kit to decorate your bottle of wine!

Begin by removing the narrowest piece from the crack-and-peel sticker backing. Then place your sticker centered on the front of the wine bottle.

When satisfied with the alignment, press down the narrow, exposed part of the sticker to secure the placement. Then remove the remainder of the sticker backing while rolling the sticker onto the bottle. Finally, secure the sticker around the sides of the bottle by pressing down beginning at the center of the sticker, outward towards either end.
