Snow Buddies Easy Giftwrap and a free offer!

I can tell that I'm gonna be running late again this year with all of my holiday "to-do" list...I haven't crossed many tasks off yet. I know it's only December 2nd, but with a blink of an eye, I'm sure December 25th will be here! I guess I'm gonna have to start focusing on those tasks real soon!! Today, I'm sharing with you some easy gift wrap ideas. Thess treat boxes (#115690) is an item that SU started carrying only this year but I love it! It's a box that's ready to be simply decorated and with a little gift inside, it's ready to give! I used a cute snowman image from the Snow Buddies stamp set. This cutie of a stamp set is a free level 2 hostess set which you can find in the Holiday Mini Catalog. Here's a better view of the cute snowman. I chose to add the feet to my guy. The [heart] with love stamp comes from a former sale-a-bration set and I used my rectangle nesties to frame the image. Love this new 3/4" real red polka dot grosgrain ribbon (#115608).
Here's another idea for quick giftwrap. I bought these pretty giftbags and folded the top down a few times, stapled it closed and added a big bow to finish it off. I think I'll need to follow my own suggestions this year to use easy gift wrap since I know I'm gonna run out of time!
Thanks for your visit today!
