Gifts for Everyone

It's that time of year, isn't it? The economy is not doing us a favor with the predicament it is in; however, you'll still be able to give cute little what-nots to family and friends. Here's one idea I got from Stampin Inspirations by Maria:

Isn't this the cutest little goody bag? Guess what, it is a standard envelope. I've covered the front and back with designer paper.

You can even stamp images on plain colored card stock and use it too.

I put a snowflake and gem on the front of the candy, which is wrapped in more patterned paper. In fact, if you get the double sided paper, you'll save even more money. The candy is your typical Hershey bar (this one has nuts) and you can buy a bulk or so and save.

I added a chipboard embellishment, a ribbon and a sentiment ticket. There you have it - a gift under $5 but more valuable because it is handmade (and edible). The person can easily use the envelope to stash paper things like receipts, pieces of notes, etc.

How lovely is that? So why not become a follower and post our button on your blog so others can find a freebie gatherer place to call home?

Happy Saturday!
