  • 1. Simplify gift-giving with this "scentsational" potpourri. Starting with four bags of store-bought potpourri, begin by spicing up three of the four bags by pouring them out in a single layer onto scratch paper such as a paper grocery sack or newspaper. Spray one bag's contents using Krylon Caramel Latte Brushed Metallic spray paint. Spray one bag's contents using watered-down craft glue and a spray bottle, then apply Rosy Red Glitter (Sparkle N Sprinkle). Spray the last bag's contents using watereddown glue as well, except this time apply Green Nugget Glitter (Sparkle N Sprinkle). When potpourri is dry, toss them together with the remaining bag, then fill ten business-size clear envelopes from ClearBags.com and trim the adhesive strip from the top of the bags.
  • 2. For gift tags, use Classic Scalloped and Classic Circle Nestabilities Dies (Spellbinders) to die cut Classic Magenta and Vanilla Cream Prismatics cardstock. To personalize gift tag, use Onyx Black Versafine ink (Tuskineko) and Large Monogram Stamper border, Small Letters set, and the Medium & Large Numbers Sets along with the Harmony Classic Circle I Wooden Handle (all from JustRite Stampers). Using a Crop-o-Dile (WeRMememory Keepers), punch a hole in the top of the tags. Tie to the top of the bag using a length of light green ribbon and hot glue a jingle bell to the knot to make these simple gifts complete!
