You can give them a bottle of craft beer or wine ... but just handing them a bottle is sort of silly, especially this time of year. So don't just hand it to them. Dress it up with our DIY reindeer gift bag.
I actually made this reindeer gift bag for a white elephant party we went to recently and they were a big hit. From now on, I'm going to dress all my beer and wine gifts in these. They're so easy to make and I made two at once to speed it up.
DIY Reindeer Gift Bag For Beer & Wine Thank You Gifts
What You'll Need:
- Red card stock
- White card stock
- Black card stock
- Beer or wine
- Paper bag (that the grocery store uses to pack your beer or wine)
What You'll Do:
Put the beer or wine in the paper bag.
Fold down the top above the top of the bottle to measure. Crease it.
Take the bottle out of the bag and lay it flat.
Cut out two ovals from the white card stock for eyes.
Cut out two black circles for pupils.
Cut out a red circle for a nose (if you want to make Rudolph) or black if you want to make one of the other reindeer who wouldn't let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games).
Glue the entire face down.
I freehanded all those circles because, well, they're circles. That's simple. I couldn't freehand antlers, though, so I drew them with a pencil before cutting them out. I just made sure to put the pencil side on the back of the bag so the front looked prettier. Plus, I cut four at once (since I was making two reindeer bags total) so only one had pencil marks.
Fold the crease (that you made two steps ago) dow.
Glue the antlers down behind the crease.
The antlers were popping off my bag and I was worried about showing up to a party with a one-antler reindeer, so I actually taped my down to keep them secure.
Put the beer or wine in the bag, fold the flap back, and close it with tape or a cute Christmas sticker.
Your family and bridal party will appreciate your bag just as much as you appreciate their help with your wedding planning.
