Last minute goodies

Can you believe Christmas is tomorrow? It seems only yesterday we were rolling our eyes at how early the stores were getting their Christmas stock in and complaining about how we were already tired of listening to Christmas Carols. And the day after tomorrow it will all be over for another year. I'm sad :(

I've been trying to come up with a plan to spread some Christmas cheer at work and finally decided on these little goodie bags last night.

I started off with the mini cards. I was going to do three Ho's stacked on top of each other(Ho Ho Ho), but once I started cutting and glueing I realized how much fiddly work that was going to be and I only had an hour before I had to leave for work. My sons science book was on the table and a light bulb went off.

My husband thinks I'm too clever for my own good and no one will 'get it'. I work with biologists. I think they'll get it.

I'm so glad I have my Revolution and don't have to 'squeeze' all those letters out. I put all three plates I needed down on the platform.

Then I cut my red cardstock into small 3/4" squares and placed one square over each letter.

I wrapped several pieces of my yummy almond roca inside snowflake cellophane and tied it all together with some green ribbon.

I'm sure everyone will 'get it'.
