How to dress up chocolate and bottle gifts

This weekend it was my father in laws birthday.  We got him a few bits and bobs and then as stocking fillers i bought a bottle of red wine he likes and a big bar of chocolate off Lili.  I decided to jazz up the wine and chocolate by using scrapbook paper,ribbon and a wooden heart. This is how it came out....

 I added scrapbook paper,ribbon,stickers and card onto a sandwich bag and worte on Happy Birthday with a gel pen.
 I painted a wooden heart white and then wrote Grandad and added a sticker to make the tag and i wrapped the chocolate in co-ordinating scrapbook paper to match the bag.
 I used another sandwich bag and co-ordinating paper to wrap the wine and then tied a matching ribbon around to keep the bag in place.
One boring gift made special :-)
