Inexpensive Holiday gifts

I bought a stack of these plain gift bags. The color was so cool, it matched the shimmery color in the Cocoa speciality DSP in the Holiday Mini Catalog. So I just added a strip of the striped DP and punched out a snowflake and put a half pearl in the middle of the snowflake to dress it up a bit with a little white satin 5/8" ribbon tied on top of the handle (you can't see it in this picture).
The tag is made with the Holiday Lounge DSP pg. 162)in the Idea Book and Catalog.
Holiday Lounge DSP is the top layer of top note layer, Sahara sand( bottom of the top note layer,remove preforation), ruby red(back top note)Just put the the two halves of the layered top note together wrapping white 1/4 " grosgrain ribbon around and stamped sentiment from Holiday Punches( Level 2 Hostess stamp set) Also added a jumbo eyelet and some rope twine to tie to the bag.

I love this stamp set called DEER Friends. It was a level 2 Hostess set from last year.
Punches- 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and the scallop circle punch alternating real red, garden green and chocolate chip.I put Peppermint Patties in the middle! I used our medium cello bags and stamped Serene Snowflake from the Holiday Mini catalog on the outside of them with white Stazon. The topper is the top note folded in half with a bow on the top!

This one is filled with candy canes. I am passing out all these goodies with my bio on them out at the Networking Connects Woman's group I joined last month at our Holiday luncheon on Thursday.
