Christmas Gift Idea #1

Hi friends.  I hope that those of you who are American had a lovely Thanksgiving.  We sure did.  Did any of you brave the Black Friday sales?  I did my shopping online and found several good deals.

I'm hoping to share a series of Christmas gift ideas, that will make your gifts a bit more unique, yet are quick and easy to make.  Today I'll share the first one and I hope that this busy season and my health allow me to get back on here soon with my other ideas.

I packaged two pairs of soft socks, a nail file and some nail polish on a bed of red, shredded paper in a plastic bag and cut a topper to fit the bag size.  I stamped the words with alphabet stamps and stamped the flourishes.  I added a few touches of color with markers and used Stickles to add some sparkle.  I inked the edges, stapled the topper on my bag and I was done!  As I look at this picture, I wish I had taken the tag off of the pink socks. :(   This gift isn't my original idea.  I saw it online somewhere and thought it was a cute idea.

Challenges:
Completely Christmas #40 - Anything Goes, Something beginning with S - My S thing is Stickles.
Hiding in my Craft Room #176 - Freestyle!
Paper Creators Crafts #33 - All About Christmas
We Do Doobadoo - Get Festive
QKR Stampede #115 - Anything But A Card

Blessings:

  • A cozy, warm home.  (We've been hit with cold temps even here in Florida.)
  • Our friends were uninjured in a bad car accident.
  • White chocolate - My special holiday treat.
Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly
