Keeping up with the Jones’ can be difficult, especially at Christmas time. You don’t have to spend money to give a unique gift… and newsflash unique is not code word for ugly homemade gifts!
Chances are if you are reading this blog you are probably the creative one in your family. Are you the one taking a million pictures at parties? You can make anything look cute. Did I get it right??? This gift idea is for you.
Look over the pictures you’ve taken this past year. Pick out a bunch of your favorite pictures for each family you are gifting. Burn those pictures on a CD. Using a CD sleeve, cupcake wrappers and some twine, wrap it up! It’s perfect gift for any occasion! And if you do it right, didn’t cost you a dime.
Who wouldn’t love a CD of pictures of their family from the past year?
Best gift ever.
Hello my name is PJ and I’m a sucker for the Dollar Spot section of Target! Who isn’t? You can find just about anything in that section for your holiday needs. Right now, it’s full of fun and fabulous Halloween themed items! I’m always trying to find new ways to dress up treat bags for my kids to take to their classes. I swear their is a secret competition between the moms in the classes to see who makes the cutest/coolest goody bag! Well, here is my latest goody bag creation. I got the bags at the Dollar Spot section of Target. They came in quantities of 4 per package. I then just added some plain cardstock borders that I punched out with various Martha Stewart Halloween punches. I also used those border punches to make the rosettes and lastly added some tulle and twine that I had lying around.
Halloween treat bags are officially being made, and what a great feeling that is. Candy isn’t always first on the list at Halloween, occasionally it takes a backseat to baked goods. You all know that the normal kraft bags show grease spots or basically any spot once you put food in it. Wax bags or glassine bags come in handy for baked good items. I made these bags because I knew they would be the perfect size for brownies, a slice of banana bread, cookies, coffee cake slice… ok you get the picture.
I am notorious for buying paper so I can cut it up and use it as embellishments. The tickets… cut from a 12×12 paper, the Frankenstein head? Cut out from a 12×12 paper, The witches wart circle? Yep, you guessed it cut out from paper. Do you see a pattern here?
Everything on this treat bags was cut out or stamped. Super easy, super simple, totally doable.
Now get to creating!
I just cannot stop smiling! Pretty soft colored 4×6 chevron bags..
4×6 that means it will fit perfectly into your scrapbook pocket sleeves if your a project lifer!!!
Scoop them up now cause like most items we sell… when they’re gone they’re gone!
Like for sure they will make any project so totally cute!
