"yum" cookie gift set

Hello! I have a simple idea to share with you this week. If you are short on time, yet want to make a simple, yet personal gift for someone special, this is just for you. I purchased an inexpensive tub of cookies from Target. I then peeled the labels off and added some of the yummy papers from the American Crafts 'Merrymint' collection (scroll down to see thsi collection). I created a "bow" out of 1"x8" strips of curled paper and then added a center. I finished it off with a simple card using these adorable American Crafts stamps that I stamped onto the silver paper and then cut out. It only took about 30 minutes to complete this project and it makes a simple container of cookies into something a little bit better.

There are so many wonderful Holiday papers available at Ally Scraps! Let this be your one-stop scrapbooking store.

Take care,
