Welcome to my blog! Today I’m blog hopping with the 3rd Thursday Blog Hop team and our theme is Last Minute Lucy. Christmas is really around the corner and I felt the rush two weeks ago when my kids were finishing up school for the year. For us here in Australia, Christmas is also the end of the school year and this means teacher’s gifts. This year I bought all the teachers some tea from a local store. Iced tea to be specific because the kids and I love it. It was a last minute rush to make these gifts look pretty:

- Bag: 6″ x 8″ Cellophane Bag
- Backing: ‘Tis The Season DSP
- Toppers: Garden Green (largest Celebration Labels Die) and Whisper White (3rd largest Celebration Label Die) cardstock
- Insert a sheet of the ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ DSP into the 6″ x 8″ Cellophane Bag.
- Die cut the topper using Celebration Labels Dies and score along the long centre to give a clean fold. Onto the white one stamp the sentiment.
- In my example I used three stamp sets for mine as these are both Teacher’s Gifts and Christmas Gifts. The “To An A+ Teacher” came from Harvest Hellos stamp set; the “Massive Thank You” from the Massive Thanks stamp set.
- On the back I stamped “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” from Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set
- Stamp poinsettia in Memento Ink and colour using Stampin’ Blends.
- Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to close the bag (fold over the top to meet the DSP) and to adhere the toppers.
