  1. Turn the jeans inside-out. Lay them flat. Position the leg so that hem is matching around all sides. Place the wine bottle on the leg for a cutting guide. Add about 2” to the top and bottom. Cut the leg. Using a stapler, staple across the bottom of the bag. Do two layers of staples. Turn right-side out.
  2. Heat a silver glitter Mod Melt in the Mod Melter. Slide the snowflake paper under the clear craft mat. Trace over the design with the Mod Melt. Allow to cool for about 7 min. Lift the snow flake to reveal the design. Using Mod Melt attach to the front of the bag.  Glue a rhinestone to the center of the snowflake.
  3. Add a bottle of wine and tie a bow around the outside.
Tip: Create a personalized look by stenciling a family name or message to the wine bag.
