Gift giving in a pinch...
It's that time of year again... Teachers and therapists' gifts... ;-)
You have to leave in 5mn, you forgot to pack the chocolates... *gasp*
No time?.. :-( No problem! :-)
1- Head over to Annie's Paper Boutique, grab a pack of those adorable Mini Gable boxes. (obviously this step would have had to be done in advance... ;-) I personally try to always have some of those on hand! You just never know!... :-))
2- Next, buy large Holiday ribbon (in a hurry grab the one from the box of chocolates you just received from your lovely neighbors) , wrap the ribbon around the box, secure with tacky tape...
3- Add a little tag (this one is from My Thoughts Exactly, the Holly jolly Tags stamps set) attached with some Trendy Twine (Holly Berry here).
Or if you're less in a hurry, you can skip the hanging tag and glue whatever embellishment you have on hand...
And VOILA... quick and colorful gift wrapping in a pinch! :-)
And just to satisfy your curiosity, this little beauty holds comfortably 12 Lindor truffles. (you could fit 13 but I got this weird idea that some people might freak out at receiving 13 of something... Oh well, you know what I had to do with poor #13 truffle.. ;-P Yum...)
