No you're not seeing things. It is the the middle of summer but we're ready to get you into the Christmas spirit. I mean there really isn't too soon of a time to be ready for the BIG day right!
The inspiration crew is back for another holiday hop!
Come hop along with us for awesome holiday inspiration and prizes scattered along the way.
Here's what I have for you all.
Every holiday season I bake a little love (sometimes a lot of love) to share with friends and families. To tell you the truth I'm not a regular everyday baker but there's something about the winter season that makes me want to warm up my oven and whip out the flour. I think the main drive to this sudden surge is that I want to wrap all the yummy goodies up in pretty paper.
Everyone loves home baked goodies but put them in custom homemade containers and they're out of this world. So today I'm sharing simple, cheap and adorable ways to wrap up your holiday bake goods.
This one is for your individual treats.
The bad is a regular ziplock bag with the corners taped in. The cinnabun roll sits on a piece of freezer paper folded up nicely. Add pretty paper to the top, wrap around string and stamp out and cut a circle tag. You're done!
These are for your super small goodies.
You can get these small circle containers in bulk for cheap at your local hobby store. They usually come with a clear cover but I just popped that out and added a stamped circle pattern paper and tied around some string.
Your really big ones.
For all your big treats or to bag up a bunch of yummy goodies, you can use my favorite. A brown paper lunch bag. I love these brown paper bags. They are so cheap, comes in bulk and easily customizable. Here I just folded the top over and added a cool tag and string.
Now here's how to give a treat. This is a plain mini canvas drawstring bag. Like the circle box you can find these at your local craft store. To jazz it up all you have to do is insert piece of paper in the bag and stamp. I also stamped little peppermint circles and glued them to the pulls. Oh and don't forget the tag.
Usually if I'm feeling ambitious I would make something for all these containers and group them together in a nice little basket. Just imagine how pretty these would look all together in a cozy basket. Adorable! What is even better is that I just used half of two sheets of pattern paper, one type of string and one stamp set to make them all. Cheap and easy and filled with love!
I'm telling you now. Pin this post now to use in December.
Now go get inspired and hopping. Your next stop is the sweet Jen Cuthbertson.
