Quick & Easy Last Minute Ideas

Yikes, Christmas is next Friday. If you’re feeling a bit stressed – I may have some help. Over the next 5 days I’ll be sharing quick and easy ideas for last minute gifts and wrapping.

Today’s idea uses our Take Out Boxes (135827). Great for some quick and easy last minute treats to have on hand.

Oh What Fun Take Out Boxes

Fill them with whatever you choose – maybe some chocolate, cookies or even a mini loaf of bread! Who wouldn’t love that?

Wrap a piece of our Cherry Cobbler 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgain Ribbon around and tie in a bow. Add a tag and voila!  Or why not make a belly band from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper (138450) and top it with a medallion instead of a tag?

Want to know what is in mine?

Oh What Fun Take Out Boxes and Sugar Scrub (2)

This cute little Cherry Cobbler tinted jar I found in the dollar spot along with a pair of aloe holiday footsies for a little holiday pampering.After all who doesn’t need a little pampering after all the holiday hustle and bustle?

I’ve used the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper and my 2″ Circle Punch to cover the top of this little mason jar. Added a Cherry Cobber 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle and our image from the A Little Something Stamp Set (139827) that I punched out using my 1 3/8″ Circle Punch (119860) . The little candy cane was perfect since the jar holds a wonderfully scented Peppermint Stick Sugar Scrub. If you’d like the recipe you can find it HERE.

A Little Something

Want a little something to make this holiday season more fun? Why not check out A Little Something stamp set found on page 41 of the Holiday Catalog. This set was one of my first choices since it works so well with our punches. And after all who doesn’t love punches?

A Little Something 2015 Holiday Catalog Swap

I love the way Sandy added a lot of different textures to this card by adding the different circles. And this set is another versatile option for the holiday season since it has both sentiments and images that will take you through the fall and through the entire year too! Team it up with the NEW Square Pillow Box Thinlits Die (139657) and you’ve got great quick and easy treats that will make someone smile – and if you want both why not get the bundle (140858/140859) and save 15% too?

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some little treats I made using this set!
