Two days until turkey day!! And this year I'm thankful for great teachers & like to show my appreciation throughout the year. I'm also all about making thoughtful, yet simple, gifts.
So I pulled out my Fall Leaves stamp set to make up some cute tags to wrap up some homemade banana bread (recipe at the bottom!). I found these cute little paper loaf pans at my local grocery store but I've also seen them at other places.
To wrap them up I just took a gallon size plastic bag and cut the top slider part off. I just tucked the corners up underneath and sealed with tape. Then I closed it up with some jute/twine & added a cute tag with some stamped leaves (the leaves were stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copics, & cut out & attached to the tag).
And that's it!
I also have another gift giving idea using the new Taco 'Bout It stamp set. For Christmas I'm planning on giving my son's teacher a jar of homemade salsa and some red & green tortilla chips (from Target). So I made a cute tag to hang on the salsa jar with the stamped images colored with Copics.
Again, easy & cute!!
