Gifts for the Masses

I know that I am not the only one who has need of quick, simple, and inexpensive packaging for Christmas gifts for the masses (scout troops, homeroom classes, Sunday School classes, neighbors and the like). This week's Kitchen Sink 10 Minute Design #102 fills that need. I chopped the top off of brown paper lunch bags I got at the dollar store and stamped a quick branch and babble on each along with a holiday greeting. I then folded the top to the back and punched two holes for the ribbon. And truth be known, they take only about 3 minutes each. They don't even look that bad when you stamp on the wrong side of the bag. Just sayin'!
