"Unexpected" Gift Ideas and on the 10th Day of Christmas

Every year I get caught out but not this year!

You know those times when the unexpected neighbour arrives with an equally unexpected box of choccies on your doorstep and you forgot to include them in your Christmas list? Well here is the quick, easy and convenient solution- handmade gift bags! Throw some choccies into a resealable plastic bag and decorate with your favourite my2angels charms, ribbons and rhinestones. Keep them in the cupboard to be neighbour and belated birthday ready all year round!

Only one problem - not eating them before I give them away LOL

Products used:
Resealable bags
Teresa Collins Tis the Season Checklist Pattern Paper
Red Glitter Ribbon
Red Organza Ribbon
Poinsettia Flower
Red Embossed Felt Stars
White Embossed Felt Stars
Bell Charms
Red Rhinestones

These are so quick and easy to make, depending on how many embellishments you want to add. I also used up scrap pattern papers and printed out a picture from clipart.
Materials used:
Doilie which I pinched together and sprayed with Honeydew Glimmer Mist and Sea Glass Glimmer Mist
White Coloured Pin
Christmas Tree Charm
Present Charm
White Glass Seed Beads
Green Crystal Brad
Poinsettia Flower
Silver Skeleton Leaves
Scrapware Holly Photo Anchors

Thanks for looking
See you tomorrow
