I put together some gift sets for some friends. We don't normally exchange gifts, but I just wanted to show them that I appreciate their friendships.
I even put a video up :)
But for those of you who don't like to watch videos....and who wouldn't want to, lol.
I have put together a photo tutorial...ohhh the things I do for you guys, lol.
First I picked up these
You can pick these up at a dollar store as I did make one earlier with a real cute mug from there.
But I picked these ones up at Walmart. I never go there as it is crazy there. But they just opened one a little bit away from my house and I didn't feel like going across town.
These cost $1.00 each :)
I wanted to put in candy kisses instead of this straw paper...but I forgot. Yup my mind is officially on vacation ;)
I then added my snowman soup that I made the other day.
I also put in a set of my Chocolate dipped Pretzel sticks.
I wanted to use some cute cellophane bags, but couldn't find them. I wanted to use more festive tissue paper, but they didn't have that either. I was going to do some stamping on the tissue paper...but I wanted to keep it simple.
Then gather the edges to the top of the mug and squeeze and twist a bit just above the contents.
Lastly tie with this curly ribbon.
Tada...I have 5 fast and simple gifts for some unexpected friends :)
I had the goodies all prepared so it went really quick :)
Onto My Day:
I finished off my gift card holders from last night. I just had to add the tags for who there were for.
My poor Ashley is battling a real bad cold. So Kristy, Heather and Ashley did a bit more baking this afternoon then she went for a long nap. Hope she feels better soon. She was suppose to go out for dinner with her boyfriend and his family and then go to a friends party later on...but she has spent her day blowing her nose and sleeping :(
I hope you all have had a creative day.....even if it was just wrapping gifts ;)
