I love these. I always will. They are so simple and fun, and can easily tie on a bottle of wine for a hostess gift, or for your favorite teacher for putting up with your kids all year!
My sister-in-law collects bottles and has many of them displayed in her kitchen. I've been asked more than once, "do they work?" and the answer is yes, they work. I did a little experiment and kept the same one. It is in my kitchen drawer for over 6 years now - it's a little beat up and bent, but yes, it is still going strong.
This is one of those "keep in your gift closet" items to stock up.
