murder mystery housewarming gifts..

I wanted to create a gift tag that went along with the theme of the party. I found
the spider web scrolls here

I have to admit that I've been a bit "rusty" on getting creative with a lot of things lately. I'm going to blame being 9 months pregnant. When I got invited to one of my friend's housewarming parties (a Murder Mystery one at that!), I knew I couldn't show up empty handed with some lame present. I wanted the gift to somehow kinda fit in with the theme of the party. 

Screw top wines are easy to open but they aren't my favorite. However,  I really liked the label.
Hopefully it doesn't taste bad. 

I found this lovely dish towel (I have the same one in my kitchen) at World Market and
wrapped it around the wine bottle. Voila! Easy but cute housewarming present. 

Since I really love Roxy & James, I felt that I should give them a little something else.
I bought two eco friendly sponges, Mrs. Meyers hand soap and 3 kitchen towels that matched the
dish towel I used above. I bought that mason jar awhile ago for the hell of it. I've also seen this
idea before on pinterest.

Everything fit perfectly in the mason jar.
I made the label with graphics I found here. I also found
a really cool font that looks like the letters are bleeding.
Perfect for a murder mystery themed housewarming party!

Fingers crossed my friends enjoyed the gifts. I had a lot of fun putting them together.
