I find that when I'm rushing around getting ready for the holidays it's beneficial to have a few tricks up my sleeves (quick fixes!) for holiday wrapping, sending and gifting. There's never enough time in the day to squeeze in EVERYTHING you originally intended - so sometimes you need to work with what you have in order to get things done!
Quick Fix 1: Scrappy Gift Tags
All you need are some old Christmas cards, some fun punches, and ribbon from your stash. Just punch out shapes from your cards (they don't even have to be centered, or entire images - I think they look best when they are a little off kilter!), punch a hole in top, thread ribbon through and you're done!
Quick Fix 2: Sprucing up Christmas letters
In the past I've bought store bought pretty (EXPENSIVE!) holiday paper from the office supply store to run through my printer. This year I had aspirations of getting some cream paper and doing some stamping and embossing on the letters. On fifty five letters?! Who was I kidding?!
Well my Stampin' Around Jumbo from Stampin' Up! came in INCREDIBLY useful. I left enough space on the bottom to roll an image. I used Christmas Chatter stamp and real red ink. It hardly took any time at all to roll the bottom of each letter. Maybe because of my helpful stamping buddy Oliver, shown above!
Quick Fix 3: Origami BoxesHERE. Some ribbon from your stash ties the boxes up and you're good to go!
