A Very Merry Everything

I had fun decorating the Petite Café Gift Bag.  While the bag is a poly lined treat bag that is food safe, I trimmed off about an inch from the top and then opened the bag and used the Confetti Stars Punch to give it that extra touch.  Please note that the punch will not go through two layers of the bag so you need to open up the bag and punch a single layer.

Cocoa Pouch

Are you in need of a super quick gift idea for neighbors or even your your upcoming holiday dinner parties?  Then look no more, as this would be the perfect gift on your table this holiday season!  I used one of the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags and cut down the sides just a little bit, maybe an inch or so and folded down the front.  Then tied a ribbon and filled it with a packet of hot chocolate and a candy cane.

A Little Dash of Cheer

Here is a great way to use those 1″ x 8″ Cellophane Bags.  Instead of filling with M&M candies, add an instant coffee pouch for all of your coffee loving friends!

Wondrous Birthday

Last month I attended my adopted demonstrator group’s Christmas party.  We brought a handmade gift to exchange but we also had a shoebox swap as well.  This was my card this year for everyone to make.  I pre-stamped, punched out the flowers, and cut out the wreath with the Big Shot.  All they had to do was assemble the card.

Thanksgiving Candy Bar Wraps

My plans were to share this with you before Thanksgiving, but I completely forgot!  My friend ordered a bunch of candy bar wrappers for her employees.  They turned out great, don’t you think?  You can make these for any holiday or special occasion.  It would also make for a great little gift at your place settings for your holiday dinner celebration!

She needed a handful of extra special ones.

Then she needed 30 of the more basic ones.
