Welcome to the Helmar Holday Blog Hop!  It is my favorite time of year and everyone is getting in the Holiday Spirit.  What a great way to do just that on our Helmar Holiday Hop!  There is so much Holiday cheer and some amazing projects from the entire team! 

Welcome to your first top on the Helmar Holiday Hop!  This is only the start.  If you are following along, you should have hopped here from Helmar's Design Team Blog.  If not, stop there and start from the beginning.  There are goodies along the way and we don't want you to miss a thing!  As the President of Helmar I am more than proud to get us started and am excited for what the team has in store for you!I am happy to share my holiday project great for that bottle of wine to bring to your Christmas parties!

Last Monday I was on Helmar LIVE where we started this fun, festive Wine Altered Gift Box.  We are on LIVE every Monday with lots of Helmar fun and creativity.  If you missed that show you can catch it HERE:



  • Adhesives: Helmar Acid free Glue, 450 Quick Dry & Liquid Scrap Dots

The negative from the wine bottle on the front of the box made a perfect embellishment for the bottle:

Finished it off with a super simple tag……..my whole motto during the holiday season is KEEP IT SIMPLE!
