Most kids enjoy making simple gifts especially for their teachers and there can be many – dance, church, piano, school, etc. I happened upon these tea cookies at Costco they are quite delicious, so we thought we would use them to make teacher gifts (we didn’t have time to make cookies). Since I enjoy making gifts for others, I make sure I always have 3 items stocked in my craft room:
Many years ago I purchased a ream of Vellum at a paper store, I can’t count how many times I’ve used vellum – it is wonderful for invitations and scrap booking, etc. I’ve also used clear bags numerous times over the past 16 years! There are so many uses for clear bags – in fact, friends of mine own clearbags.com!
When I tie bows around the bags I make the bow first and then tie it around the bag. This way it eliminates a “bulky” bow and one that looks askew.
Tie the ribbon in the middle with a length of curling ribbon – voila a very simple bow!
