Good morning! This one's going to have to be short (and of course, sweet!) because I'm running late today. I hate rushing around in the morning, but sometimes it just can't be avoided, you know? I found these cute Christmas gift sacks on one of my latest excursions to Target! Have I mentioned lately how much I love Target!? *grin* They're perfect to hold a little something for a friend or even a cutely decorated stocking stuffer. I don't know about you and your family, but Jon and I plan to make a lot of the gifts we give this year. Not only is it fun for us to do together, but it's economical too which is totally important in this not-so-friendly economy! I added a bag topper stamped with the snowflakes from Home Sweet Home and a white tag using the "do not open until December 25th" sentiment from the Tag Treats set and the mistletoe cuppie from Season's Sweetings. I colored cuppie with Copic markers, added a red Candy Dot for the cherry, and Crystal Stickles to the cupcake. The red grosgrain ribbon is from the TE store. After finishing the bag, the set just didn't seem complete. I always keep a stash of Hershey Nuggets around (as long as I don't eat them all first!) so decided to create a little six nugget box. I used the same snowflakes to stamp address labels and the only inked the 'merry' portion of the 'merry & bright' sentiment from Season's Sweetings. I used the same cupcake for the lid, popped it up with foam tape and added some red brads. You can see a close up of the nugget box above. The whole ensemble took about 30 minutes to make... quick and easy gift giving! Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned tomorrow for a sweet treat from Jami!
