Quick and easy Gift inspiration

Hello Everyone! Vicki here.   Today I thought I’d share with you how easy it is to make fun projects with VSM goodies..that aren’t extremely time consuming.   The papers and tags can really do all the work for you.   Some times you just need a card or gift bag in a pinch.  You love the idea of giving something handmade but.. TIME.. there’s sometimes just not enough of it. We’ve all been there.   Well, no fear.  Let the papers do the work for you.  I chose to use Dimestore Vogue for these projects.

 Even a simple brown lunch bag can make a darling gift bag with the help of these cute papers and tags.

And of course a matching card.   Some stitching ( or faux stitching done with a tracing wheel) and some foam squares for some dimension and tah dah..

Up-cycle  jars, paint the lid, fill it with goodies and tie a fun Tag from the Dimestore Vogue line on with Twirly Twine.    A simple but heartfelt gift for a friend who has helped you out in a pinch? Teacher gift?

Gift giving is always fun, but now and then I find that I have a real need for something myself.   Something I’ve been needing is a place to keep all my passwords for different websites ect…    Why have a boring old note pad ..when I can have something fun on my desk? haha   So, I made a quick but sturdy notebook of sorts to set on my desk right by my computer.  ( not as easy to misplace either 🙂    When I travel, this will be easy to take with me.

I used one of the new Bingo Craft Cards for my cover.

I added pieces from the Dimestore Vogue papers and tags to each of the pages, leaving plenty of room for the information I need to add.

Give yourself permission to ” quick craft” when you need to.  Nothing is more personal than a handmade gift.. any way you look at it.  Get the kids involved.. they’ll love it. What a great way to spend time together.

Thanks for stopping by!
