{good luck!}

Hi there! Jennifer here, and today I'm going to show you a cute gift idea you can tuck inside your kids' lunchbox or backpack. Maybe they're just starting back to school, or maybe they have a big test coming up. Whatever the occasion, this will be sure to cheer them up :)

To start out, we'll make an embellished tag out of patterned paper strips. If you're like me, you have a hard time throwing scraps away. this is a great way to use them!

Gather up some strips of paper and a tag.

Adhere them onto the tag, then turn over and trim the excess off.

You can add a little stitching if you want, too!

I embellished the tag with an apple die cut, pencil and punched star. These papers are from the upcoming "Elementary My Dear" line by GCD. I tucked some oatmeal scotchies into a little glassine sack and clipped the tag on top.


And here's a fun shaped card to go with the treat ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!

I love this so cute and simple :)

Another "cookie holder" idea I saw on another blog was to use the plain white cd holders with the little flap. I can't remember where I saw them but they decorated the folder with stickers.

I don't know who I think I'm kidding though I'll never advance beyond a sharpie and a sandwich baggie ;)
