Hope it’s not too late to show you what we did for neighbor’s gifts this year. You are welcome to use this idea anytime.
We live in a very close community. We all know each other and are friends. How do you come up with 30 + gifts without breaking your wallet. I found this idea, you guessed it right, in Pinterest. The funny thing is that I didn’t pin it because I wanted it to be a surprise for my neighbors, who happen to also follow me on Pinterest. And now I can’t find it anywhere, nor the source…sorry! (Ha!)
You will need:
30 + sheets of regular letter size scrapbook paper. I got mine from Hobby Lobby when it was on sale for 50% off (.22/each).
Modpodge and a glue stick
ribbon (picture shows red but I ended up using silver for contrast)
and your favorite treat (we used Muddy Buddies since my kids seem to be obsessed with it lately)
For the labels: white cardstock, liquid glue and glitter (not pictured)
Make a cone shape with the scrapbook paper:
Put everyone to work making labels. Cut the white cardstock in a label shape, dip the borders into a small bowl containing glue and then into another bowl containing glitter. Let it dry:
The labels will look like this:
Cut pieces of ribbon (mine were about 4 inches in length):
Fill up the cones with the treats
When I meant put everyone to work, I meant e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. Husband’s hands applying glue to flap. Fold it over and close cone. It will then look more like an envelope of some sort:
Hot glue ribbon and later the labels.
And here you have it! (Great project for the whole family. So fun to make). And yes, the tags say: “Feliz Navidad!” You know…just trying to keep the culture alive:
Ready to deliver!
Do you want to hear the story on how the kids fought over who would hand out the gifts? And how toddler ended up “winning” because she lives by: “If I want it, it’s mine. If we make something together, it’s mine. If it looks like mine, it’s mine. If I think is mine, IT’S MINE!
I think you get the point!
P.S: Look what else I made from Pinterest? Glitter balls (package of 4 fromTarget spot at $1.00/ea) ribbon and wreath. Perfect backdrop for my dinning room. Love it!
And proudly I introduce you to our darling tree: Gold and white!
Happy Tuesday Friends!
