Christmas Goodie/Gift Bags

Every year, come the week before Winter Break, I find myself scrambling for teacher gifts for the boys’ teachers. This year, I am determined to help alleviate some of the December Craziness by attempting to get things done early. I immediately fell in love with the me & my BIG ideas Christmas stickers the second I saw them. I grabbed a few Pocket Pages cards, a piece of green card stock, a couple of Whisker Graphics bags and started to shuffle things around. Within in minutes, I had things organized for the makings of four gift bags:
