Gifty is my new term for little gift. Yes, you can all use it now.
Keeping things simple is my new mind set. Projects, gifts and parties don't need to be over the top to be fun. This year I put together these easy gifties (my new word in action) for teachers, the school bus driver, and our mail carrier.
This bag of goodies is just about the easiest gifty out there. It really is self explanatory, but I took pictures to document and share anyway...
Good individually wrapped candies (these were on sale at Costco)
Cellophane bags and filler
Gift tags (I used super cute table confetti from Minted)
Jute or twine
I sealed up my bags by wrapping the string around the top multiple times, then tying a square knot.
With a small hole punch, I make two small holes close to each other. Cut a ten inch length of string, and insert the ends into the holes like the photo.
Place on gifty and tie the string in to a bow. Snip ends of string to make bow even, and tie a knot on the ends.
Write a little note on the tag and your gifites are ready to hand out.
