Better Late Than Never?

So, I didn’t blog our Christmas neighbor gifts this year.  I shared them on Facebook and Instagram, but you can’t pin from those.  So, when a reader (hi Wendy!) kindly asked if I could put up something pinnable so she’d remember this idea next year, I was happy to do so.

I bought straws from IKEA.  You could use cute paper stripey ones or those crazy twisty straws or whatever, really.

I separated the packs by color (because I liked how it looked better that way) and bagged them in self sealing cellophane bags.  I got mine locally at Paper Plus but I’m sure they’re available all over.

And then I applied labels I designed in Silhouette Studio.  You can for sure do this in PhotoShop or use PicMonkey or any scrapbooking program, but Silhouette Studio is what I know, so it’s what I went with.  I printed the labels onto sheets of sticker paper and then cut them out and stuck them right on the bags.

Super easy, right?

So, if your neighbors enjoy a good Christmas pun, keep this in mind for next year.  Open-mouthed smile

 

And, just FYI, printable sticker paper and everything but machines, gift cards, and download cards is 40% off over at Silhouette through the end of today (1/17).  Use code “CRAP” to stock up.  40% off is the best deal you’ll see all year!
