Last Minute Gift Ideas

Looking for some great Last Minute Gift Ideas? Look no further! Today the JustRite DT is showcasing some great Last Minute Gift Ideas using JustRite products! I've got two really quick and easy gift ideas so share with you today.

I'm not sure how much longer I could have held my family off from eating these Homemade Chocolate Truffles. I left them strict orders not to touch the ones in this pretty decorated tin, so far so good! I think they've left just one on the plate of extras because no one wanted to admit they finished them! My tin holds 5 Truffles, if you make them a tad smaller, you might be able to fit 8. I think it makes a great little gift to have handy for the holidays.

To decorate the tin, I used Sticky Strip to adhere a strip of Basic Grey Figgy Pudding to the tin, then adhered a piece of Riding Hood Red Ribbon, I used the Bow Easy to create the pretty bow, and secured that in place with Glue Dots. To create the Tag I used the sentiment from the JustRite A Merry Little Christmas Set and the 1-5/8" Wood Stamper, stamping in Riding Hood Red on White card stock. I used the Spellbinders Circle Dies to cut my White card stock, then layered it on a Red panel. I adhered the tag to the tin using dimensionals, then added a few Silver Pearls.



My next gift idea is super easy! I found these great alterable Handbag Hangers at my local Kohl's store this week, and they are on sale for 50% off! I just love these, as they keep my purse up and off the dirty floor and the fact I can alter them with my JustRite Stampers makes them so much more personable!




Here I used the Wood Stamper 1-3/16" with Bonus 60pt. Font Set & Damask Borders to personalize my gift for a friend. I did a bit of omitting on the Damask image, as I didn't want the top and bottom crest over the monogram to show. I inked up the image in Black and stamped on White card stock, then cut my card stock using a Square Spellbinders Dies to fit the opening.
