Do you need a last minute gift? Or something fun for friends and neighbors? I love this cute idea using a simple whisk from the kitchen section of your favorite store. I’ve seen it done several ways on Pinterest – here’s my take on it.
You’ll need a whisk (I found mine at Walmart), chocolate kisses, cellophane bags (you can find these in the cake decorating area of Walmart or your local craft store), ribbon, and the tag to tie onto the package. If you like the tag I created, click on the “Gift Tag” link below for the pdf to print. It will print on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I printed mine on white card stock, trimmed each tag, and then layered them to red and green card stock.
Do you end up with bananas that get too ripe and mushy to eat? Yeah, me too! Of course the go to way to use them up is to make banana bread. I found this recipe for Butterscotch Banana Bread here at Six Sisters’ Stuff and it adds a little twist to the normal recipe.
It’s super easy to make and easy to double if you have a lot of bananas you need to use up! 😉
You can also make these in mini loaf pans. Perfect to tie with a ribbon and a cute tag for a sweet Christmas gift.
To make your tag, cut a piece of kraft card stock to 4 by 2 inches. Punch or trim the top into a tag shape. Stamp “to” and “from” with red ink on the tag. Attach a strip of red patterned paper to the bottom of the tag. Die cut a tree from green card stock and emboss with a swirl pattern, if desired. Attach the tree to the tag and tie with bakers twine.
Super quick and easy – even faster if you decide not to emboss the tree!
I always say I’m not going to let time sneak up on me and I’m going to start my Christmas crafting early. Well…once again, I am down to the wire trying to get all the things made on time!! Maybe 2019 will be different…a girl can always dream! 😀
Today I have a simple Christmas card to share. It comes together quickly and can easily be made assembly-line style. I cut, stamped, and embossed all my pieces first and then assembled all the cards. It’s simple but filled with warm Christmas wishes.
To make the card, emboss a panel of red card stock and attach it to a card made with kraft card stock. Cut 3 banner shapes from patterned paper. I cut one banner 4 by 1-1/2 inches and 2 banners 3 by 1 inches. I used this Banner Triple Punch from Stampin’ Up to punch my banner shape, but you can easily cut it with scissors. Attach 3 banners to the card. Stamp the sentiment on kraft card stock with red ink and die cut with a scalloped oval die. Attach it to the card with foam tape.
Such a simple card – but filled with Christmas cheer!
