Quick and Easy gift ideas by Yvonne Blair

Hello there.  I don't know about you I cannot believe Christmas is in 15 days! Crazy.
We all have those things crop up where we need a quick gift. 
You know what I'm talking about.  
I decided to share with you some things I have made up for just that occasion. 

Here I bought a few Starbucks Holiday Mugs and stuffed them with hot chocolate and peppermint sticks to dip in the hot chocolate.  I also used a Teresa Collins Santa's list treat bag as a little gift card holder. 
It contains a Starbucks Gift card to stuff in the mug along with the other goodies. 
If you haven't bought any of these treat bags yet...what are you waiting for???
The small ones are the perfect size to create a unique gift card holder.
I took to epoxy dots and stuck them on a foam pop dot. Folded the top of the treat bag down and stuck the popped epoxy dots on the bag as well as the fold.  Then you just tie a little piece of baker's twine add a punch out from the die cut sheet and there you have it.  A really quick and easy gift. 
I think these would be great for teachers, co-workers or that unexpected guest that always seems to happen.
 Next I took one of the bigger treat bags, adhered a doily, stamped the "to-from" and tied it all together with some more Baker's Twine. They you can just stuff it with whatever you have on hand. 
Wouldn't this be cute to take to the Kid's Christmas party at school???

 Last but certainly not least, I ran one of the transparent treat bags through the TCeBosser.
I think this is the perfect way to dress it up a bit.  
Love the Stardust folder...it has been really used a LOT lately, hehehe.
Folded the bag down, attached a folded doily and punched out the Santa's List from a piece of the packaging. I love to use as much as possible...sometimes the packaging has some really cute elements on them. 
 I hope you enjoyed today's quick and easy in a pinch post! 
Until next time! Have a safe and happy week! 
I hope to get some Christmas shopping done and crossed off my list! 
What about you???
