Black Friday

How was Thanksgiving for everybody? We had a great day here. The best part of it was the movies at the end of the day. We went to see Old Dogs and all I can say is hilarious. It's one of those movies that you can just hear the entire theater laughing. It was a feel good movie and John Travolta & Robin Williams play nicely off of each other. So if you need a good laugh go see this movie. There is one part where you'll just keep laughing and laughing. But I'm not going to give it away. So who is going out early this morning for black friday? Not me that's for sure. If you go out, email me and tell me your war stories.
Oh yeah this is a blog about papercrafting not movies right and black friday right.
Today I have a sample of a quick easy way to wrap up maybe some homemade goodies or small gifts. I can see homemade cookies, fudge or biscotti in these cute food safe bags or maybe some homemade dog biscuits for your favorite poochies in your life. The bags are from Stampin Up. They are a great thick good quality bag. They ship to you flat and all you have to do is put them together. No glue or tape required. All I did was add our metal edge tag, punched out a piece or real red cardstock with my 13/4 circle punch, and taped it onto the cirlce tag. After that I added a rub on from our Merry & Bright rub on's from the holiday mini catalog. After that I used my crop-a-dile and punched a hole. I finished it up with some chocolate chip 5/8 in grosgrain ribbon.

These bags are very inexpensive and give a great look for those homemade goodies that everybody loves so much. Grab a package or 2 of these great gift bags to make your gift packaging that much easier.

Only 3 days left to take advantage of the Holiday Extravaganza sale. What a great way to get some holiday shopping done in your jammies. You don't even have to brave the lines and parking to get these great deals. Visit my online store and click on shop now to see all the limited time deals.

Angela's tips:
-Our 13/4 circle punch and our 11/4 circl punch make using our metal edge tags a snap.
-Rub on's are a great, fun way to add a little touch or personalization to a gift tag and they are super easy to use. Simply cut out the rub on you would like to use and use the enclosed wood stick and rub all over the rubon and carefully peel off the left over clear paper.
-Our ribbon is a great way to finish off those holiday projects without costing you an arm and a leg.

Have a fantastic day and happy stampin!
If you do brave black friday shopping good luck to you!
