12 Weeks to an Easier Christmas - Week 11

Last minute gifts?  We all need them.  It is so easy to do baked goods,
either homemade, or bakery purchases repackaged. 

Packaging treats can be easy if you just place them
on a pretty plate in a Ziploc bag.  I've done that!
How about dressing them up just a bit?
You could place your treats in a cello bag  and package them
in one of Stampin' Up's Tag A Bag Gift Boxes. 
That's crumpled paper in the box, not crushed cookies!  lol
I cased Connie Stewart's beautiful project for this gift idea.
Oh My Gosh! 
Look how Laura decorated the sleeves for these boxes!
If you need a small package, wrap it up in Stampin' Up's Tag A Bag Gift Bags.
My downline Tina did this to package a small banner she gave as gifts.
To create the 3D star:
Stamp or emboss the Christmas star image.
 Punch a small hole in the center of the star. 
Score along the lines to the center spot.
Fold on all lines.  Long lines go up.  Short lines go down.
The star stays folded without any adhesive.
Place a pearl over the hole you punched.
Here's a cute Muslin bag for treats that Sharlene created.
Personally I have a hard time stamping on these. 
You need a really well inked stamp pad for a good stamped image.
If you just need a small package for say, jewelry?
The Milk carton die works wonderfully for that.
I could see this filled with 3 different kinds of candy.
However you wrap it up, it's not about the gift,
but that you remembered the people you care about at Christmas.
